Working with Michael has been amazing. Two parts Real Talk, one part Therapy, with just a drizzle of sass – exactly what I needed. Michael has brought so much clarity to my business planning, but most especially he’s helped me get out of my own way. I’ve avoided business coaching in the past because of vague promises and no clear deliverables. Michael is the exact opposite. You are getting exactly what you think: the Edna Mode of Business Consulting.

Your business is stuck. It feels like there’s something holding you back. And, no matter how hard you try or how hard you work, you’re just spinning your wheels. You can’t get ahead. 

You know what the problem is. You can’t stop thinking about it. It ruins every peaceful moment. It keeps you up at night. You just don’t know what to do. If you did, maybe things would be okay.

But, things aren’t okay. And, it’s starting to feel like you’re sinking. If you don’t do something, your business is finished.

You’ve tried to fix it. You’ve read the business books. You’ve listened to the podcasts. You’ve joined the Facebook groups and the Slack channels. Maybe you’ve even hired a business coach. But, none of the advice applies to you. It’s all so vague, so bullshit, so meaningless.

You just need the answer.

You can do the work. That’s what got you here. And, you definitely aren’t ready to give up. You just need the answer. You need the path that will get you from where you are to where you want to be.

Imagine having the answer, knowing the path, seeing the stepping stones in front of you. Imagine watching the fog clear and your problems fade away. It would be game-changing!

Stop looking for the answer. Find it. Book a Strategy Sesh.

I just got off an hour-long strategy sesh with Michael and I can’t be more fricking pleased.


I’m not one of those people who think numbers are magic. I know they’re not, and I know there’s no shortcut to fixing anything I need to fix financially with special… magic. One of the reasons why I was drawn to Michael in the first place is that he was always clear in his LinkedIn posts that he doesn’t have tricks. I don’t want to get in trouble with the Feds if that’s ok with everybody else.


Anyway, so we had an amazing call where he answered all of my questions, helped me prioritize what to focus on where, and identify and plan to fix my most pressing business financial hiccups. He was so realistic and supportive and did a great job reminding me that 1. I don’t need to feel like shit for not having a good handle on this naturally, and 2. that it will take a couple of years to really unravel what’s been going on. And. you know what? That’s exactly what I needed to hear. It’s only realistic that 8 years of disorganization is going to take more than 2 months to fix.


If you need intelligent, coherent, and comprehendible tactics and suggestions for how to get your business financials in order, I can do nothing but praise Michael and suggest his expertise to you. You won’t regret it.


Unless you want magic.
Then you need to find a magician.





Why consult with Michael?

It seems like everyone (and their mother) is a business coach nowadays. Why pick me?

Because, I’m not really a business coach.

I don’t babble in business buzzwords and cliches. I don’t pretend to understand business. I’m not a business shrink helping you find your confidence within. I’m not gonna send you motivational pics I find on Instagram. And, I don’t have Google open in another tab, searching for answers to your tough questions.

I’m an accountant and business advisor. I know business strategy and finance.

I’ve been knee-deep in financials for years – helping clients make sense of their numbers and make tough decisions. I give real-world, in-the-trenches advice. And, I’ll help you overcome the obstacles standing between you and your goal.

I’m very serious about this.

My flavor of supportiveness is “I believe in you, you can do anything, but you really need to stop fcking around and start fcking doing.” I’ve been called:

🧐 The Edna Mode of business advice
🧐 The Sour Patch Kid of finance
🧐 A less cantankerous David C Baker
(Although, I do strategy and finance and not positioning like David does.)

I’m not gonna hold your hand. But, I’m also not gonna leave you floundering in the mud. 

We’re gonna fix your business.

I have more questions…

Or, shoot me an email at: michael@restingbusinessface.com

I’ll get back to you soon.
