one of my favorite quotes…

“One of the huge imbalances in life is the disparity between your daily existence - with its routines and habits - and the dream you have within yourself of some extraordinarily satisfying way of living.”

- Wayne Dyer

Mike Mason - Founder

I grew up the youngest of three children and had a typical childhood of art, writing, bb guns and soccer balls. Having always felt an affinity for the military, I wanted to serve before starting college, so I enlisted in the USMC. Upon completion of Boot Camp, I graduated from the military version of a Public Relations and Journalism trade school.

In college, I continued my commitment with the USMC Reserves and played D-1 soccer while working full-time. I graduated with a degree in Communication Studies and prepared myself for the professional world. Despite a background in Management, I considered a career in Journalism or Law Enforcement yet took a job with a renowned, multi-billion-dollar company instead.

After two years in various administration jobs, I landed a coveted position in the Sales Division. Immediately, I became one of the enterprises top producers, consistently landing in the top 10% and top 5% of all sales performers. During this career I was also involved in numerous companywide committees, human resource councils, select executive boards and rewarding philanthropic endeavors.

Even amidst the accolades, awards and reward trips that my sales accomplishments offered, I was looking for more, so I began coaching business owners, managers and sales staff in my free time. The clients’ goals and obstacles varied, and I loved both partaking in the challenge and watching the business’ results unfold.

What started out as a hobby suddenly felt remarkably rewarding to me and to my clients.

I retired from the insurance industry and underwent two deeply challenging mentorships and earned several formal Professional Coaching certifications.

Simultaneously, I worked as Communications and Training Director for a mid-sized public non-profit organization. Coaching options of all sorts accompanied me through this venture for almost 10 years.

Non-profits and the people behind them will always hold a special place in my heart.

I spend my free time enjoying fitness, painting, writing and traveling.

I am the father of 3, grandfather of 2 and husband of 1. I live a great life.
