I’m Michael Knouse
Tough truth: Just because SOMEONE CALLS THEMSELVES a great coach doesn’t mean THEY know shit about business.
Humble brag: I’ve got both covered.
I leverage tangible, measurable principles from my actual decades of business experience to infuse significance, impact, stability, and white-hot profits into your business.
In a nutshell:
I take a more PREDICTABLE approach to designing a business that produces more impact + RESULTS.
Yep, you heard me—no more:
- Over-promises of a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, let’s define what business evolution could look like for YOU and how to joyfully create such a thing.
- “Become the expert of [insert industry here]!” Umm, how about we cut the ego trip and create a stable foundation first?
- “A 6-figure business with a 4-hour work week!” A better plan? Let’s build towards something meaningful with a series of small wins.
Sound like a breath of fresh coaching air? Excellent, because that’s what I do.
I coach entrepreneurs to achieve extraordinary outcomes and I mentor coaches who are ready to make $200k.
Around here we know that mindset work is important…but so is good old fashioned hard work. I’ll help you get out of your head and into action.
That’s my kind of transformation.
how do you know
I’m the real deal?
- 14 years of selling complex tech + software solutions (8 of which were in high-growth startups).
- Bootstrapped, grew and sold a boutique pet products company while also running the day-to-day of a rapidly growing real estate investment firm. No biggie. (Biggie.)
- Launched this coaching business in 2013. And have replaced my high-salary income and then some – a feat that I could have only dreamed of.
Here’s where I speak in the 3rd person like a true professional—for those who like a true blue bio:
