A few weeks ago, I got my first "Ghost Writing" offer; a gig I barely knew existed six months ago...

It happened because I built a Twitter following of smart, connected people.

Lately, I've been working with a few professionals looking to:

  • Start their own businesses
  • Create "in-bound" sales leads

Just like how I stumbled upon a 'Ghost Writing' gig, you too can unearth hidden opportunities. (Discover how in my 7 Day Twitter Video Course.)

Hi, I'm Mike!

I've helped thousands of people connect with meaningful Career opportunities and build lives of purpose as a Higher Ed Exec, while side-hustling as a consultant and creator. Since leaving Higher Education, I've learn way more about the Creator economy and started doing Twitter/Solopreneur coaching (which I never expected) and a Podcast - The Actualized Self. As a Coach, my strengths lie in helping clients uncover their unique strengths, overcome their own mental hurdles/blocks, and systematize practices. I love helping clients transition from 9-5 to the Creator Economy; and have been doing more work in that space.

An abundance of choices doesn't just make us indecisive - but unhappy. This paradox extends to careers too.... Excessive...
