Meet Mike

Mike began his career in 2000 working in the computer support department within the government.  Mike was challenged everyday by working with a diverse group of people with unique problems.  He was quickly promoted to positions with increasing responsibility and accountability as his ability to motivate and inspire others was easily recognized. 

Knowing he did not want to work with the government for the next 30 years, Mike started a successful real estate investment business where he would buy houses and rent them out to University and College students.  In 2012, Mike was featured in the Canadian Real Estate Wealth Magazine. In his conversations with his student tenants, he found many of them were lost and confused about life.  Mike went above and beyond as a landlord and helped them see a new perspective on life. Through his real estate investing, he discovered his natural skills and ability to coach and mentor others.  He later went on to start a real estate investment coaching business to help others achieve financial success.  It was obvious Mike had a passion for helping others.

Mike experienced his own personal shift from his busy lifestyle by scaling back on things and simplifying his life.  He was able to step away from his role as a full time employee which allowed him to focus more on empowering and inspiring others through his life coaching business.

Mike is a speaker, an author and a life coach who is driven to help people reach their full potential and live their best life.  He focuses his coaching on helping people achieve their goals while maintaining a healthy balance in life.

He walks his talk and lives by example.  Mike’s journey has been an inspiration to many and he continues to share his experiences through his coaching, online blog, and weekly ‘Start Me Up’ newsletters.

Working with Mike will help you push through your complacency and limiting beliefs to achieve maximum results.



I'm married and have two SUPER AMAZING daughters.  I love spending time with my girls. Having fun with them, learning with them and watching them grow.  They are a big part of MY WHY.



Travelling has helped to create some pretty amazing experiences in my life.  I have always been a big fan of travelling.  I do like cruising and all inclusive resorts, but I much prefer to get off the beaten path and really experience the country.  One of my favorite trips was my recent backpacking trip to Thailand.  As you can see from the pics, I also love adventure and doing wild and crazy things.



Giving feels good and I have been doing alot more lately.  I have been part of many charitable giving campaigns over the years. but there are a couple that really stand out for me.  Over the holidays my family and friends raise money, buy food, pack baskets and deliver them to families in need as part of Tony Robbin's Basket Brigades.  I visited Guatemala and volunteered my time and resources to orphanages.  I'm building a school in Ecuador.  Once it's built, I will organize a group to visit the school and volunteer for a bunch of days when it opens.  I plan to build at least a school a year in a developing country.



True wealth is your health.  It's the foundation of everything.  Without it, we have nothing.  Over the last couple years, I have committed lots of time and money to learn how to live in peak health. Since then, my happiness levels are much higher and my energy levels are through the roof.



It is my mission to help inspire others to live their best life.  To do so, I have to get out of my comfort zone, get in front of groups and share my message.  I have been doing much more of that lately and it feels good knowing I have made a positive impact on other's lives.  More and more people are booking me to speak.  If you have a group or a corporation that is looking for a speaker, and you feel my message would be a good fit, shoot me over an email.
