Allow me to introduce myself.
I'm Mike Burke.
I help managers develop strategies, so they can achieve their career goals, personal goals, and financial goals.
I draw on my 27 years of experience as a front-line manager and leader.
I worked my way up the company ladder excelling in Customer Service Management, Warehouse and Delivery Management, plus Sales Management.
I eventually earned the responsibility to lead entire facilities and ultimately running multiple divisions for a Fortune 50 Company.
Now I’m here to help you become the leader you're meant to be.

"I had the pleasure of starting out my sales career with Mike as my division manager. Especially as a new rep, I faced some challenges that I felt I wasn’t prepared for and that he was never afraid of addressing. We broke difficult situations down and went after them together as a team giving me confidence and experience in order to face future challenges on my own. He believed in personal development and product training, never denying anything that would benefit a growing, successful career. I always felt like I had someone in my corner and the only way I could fail is if I didn’t believe in myself as much as he did. I believe Mike will be successful no matter what he decides to do in life because he has the drive to do so."
