Meet Your Host

Hi, I’m Michael!

Yes, shocking isn’t it.

Don’t let the color of my hair fool you.

I am very serious about leadership. Throughout my career, I have been successful in dealing with serious business issues by crafting them in a way that is fun, relatable, and memorable. I describe what I do as Serious Business Training with Flair.

On the Shock Your Potential Podcast, we discuss the biggest issues that both businesses and individuals face today. Listen in as each of my guests shares their successes and challenges in an open and honest environment.

Through these conversations I have learned so much that continues to impact my professional journey, and has introduced me to hundreds of new and amazing connections.

I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I do every taping!
