An expert in the fields of brand strategy and behavioral neurology, Michael brings these disciplines together to form powerful communication strategies that accelerate small business growth. Strategies that are specifically tuned to resonate with their audience, trigger feelings of trust, and create the desire to buy. As a child in the schoolyard Michael never quite understood why one kid was seen as “in” while another was “out”, and why it seemed to shift so easily. It made no sense. Little did he know at the time that this would become the spark of a life’s work of showing businesses how they can be seen as the "in" kid. Michael has a passion for understanding how the human mind works to drive our behavior and how we make decisions. His fresh and counter-intuitive insights are the result of his investigations into multiple ways of understanding how people work. Business leaders come to Michael to help them rethink how they communicate and make more impact.

Raitis StalazsCEO/ Founder of Thrive Courses
Ever since arriving in the United States at age 20 with $80 in my pocket and minimal English speaking skills, I've been obsessed with this one question: “How come some people are thriving in life, and some people are barely surviving?” Of course, the answer is not as simple; the answer is a lot more complicated. But I believe that one of the main reasons why some people are thriving while some people are barely surviving is ongoing personal improvement and education. The same thing applies to entrepreneurship. In order to start and build a successful business, you must be willing to continually learn and grow. I found that the best way to do so is by learning from those who are just a few steps ahead of us.
