Watching his father come home late from work most nights, work most Saturdays,
witnessing his mother raise 3 boys and then do outsource sewing late at night after she
had put them all to bed, had a profound impact on Michael in his childhood.
Watching his father come home late from work most nights, work most Saturdays, witnessing his mother raise 3 boys and then do outsource sewing late at night after she had put them all to bed, had a profound impact on Michael in his childhood.
The useful aspect was instilling a solid work ethic, the un-useful was imprinting his subconscious with a program of overwork.
Before he understood the significant control that our subconscious mind exerts over planning and thinking, Michael decided to do things differently than his parents, and have his own business, he thought that being a business owner rather than a ‘wage slave’ was the ticket to a different kind of life.
When he got his first business he worked passionately in an effort to build a secure future for his family. And unwittingly fell into the same patterns that had been downloaded decades before. Working from early morning to late night, not taking days off, justifying to himself and his family that it was only for a short while… but it wasn’t.
The stress of overwork took its toll, he was exhausted, frustrated, a poor husband and an absent father, the fatigue contributed to poor decisions. Eventually the business was lost, and divorce followed shortly after.
After a period of navel-gazing, feeling sorry for himselfand realising that if his outer world was to change, his inner world needed to shift first, Michael embarked on a quest for knowledge that continues to this day. It has seen him study and learn in business classes, coaching and counseling courses, natural wellness schools, and from highly respected personal development teachers in Australia and America, as well as spending time with shamans in South America, and in meditative retreats in Asia.
For over 15 years Michael managed, then co-founded the leading wellbeing retreats in Phuket, Thailand. For over 20 years he studied and coached one-on-one with Dr. John Hinwood on Stress Management and Emotional Resilience.
By wedding his knowledge of business practices, thought leadership, values driven relationships stress management, and physical wellbeing, he has created a unique program of transformation for business owners and leaders.
This is a rich and powerful experience that changes lives. He works with business owners, leaders and their partners from around the world, guiding them to transform from the Working Wounded to Wellness Warriors.
His vision is a world where business is a healthy pursuit; healthy from the head to the heart to the hip pocket.
