I grew up in Leavittsburgh, which is a small town nestled between Cleveland and Akron Ohio where I attended LaBrae High School. After graduation in 1992 I enlisted in the US Army where I served three years and in 1995, I was honorably discharged.
This was not a planned exit from service, and I had no plan “B” so I took a few months off to figure out what the next move would be for me. Later that year I went back to school for my Associates Degree in Business Administration, with a focus on Finance Management.
From 1998 to 2008 I worked in both Corporate America, and for small business and went back to school for my Bachelor’s degree in Accounting.
In 2015 I founded Proverbs 24:3 Consulting.
Since its founding I have had the opportunity to coach countless pastors, business owners, and ministry founders to help them overcome the challenges that held them back from a higher level of success.
WHY I DO THIS
I have had the chance to meet a lot of great people, and work with great organizations. Along the way I have coached countless business owners, pastors, and individuals on Finances, leadership, and personal growth.
I started Proverbs 24:3 Consulting after a friend of my mine made the comment " Michael, you can help a lot of people with your experience and education." It was at that moment I realized that not every one has been lucky enough to have the experiences that I have, and we all , no matter how old, how educated, or different we are, we all need a little help to get from where we are, to where we want to be. Proverbs 24:3 Consulting gives me the chance to help others get there.
The path to get to where I am has not always been an easy one, it never is, but I would not change it one bit. Maybe it's the pastor or Chaplin in me but I truly do love helping others , this is not now, or will ever be about me.
