Meet Michael

 

For Mike, life is most rewarding through relationships.  Besides family and spiritual relationships, Mike finds his client relationships mutually beneficial.  By providing Retirement Planning services, Mike’s clients can explore their retirement possibilities in a professional yet friendly process.  In doing so, Mike gets to experience one of his life pleasures in helping others.

Mike began his career as an Information Technology professional where he spent over 30 years helping clients implement IT solutions to help their businesses grow.  Now, and for the last 7 years, he has been helping clients with personal finance and retirement solutions.

To make the career transition, Mike went back to college to earn a Master of Science in Finance degree from Walsh College.  It was important to Mike to have that competency level before he ever spoke to a client!  Since then, he has obtained a Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®) designation from the American College of Financial Services.  As an on-going learner, he’s not done yet!

Family:

Mike enjoys being the best husband and father he can possibly be. Amidst all life’s challenges, he enjoys the role he plays as the head of the household and a leading example for his kids and grandkids. Whether it’s holidays or weekends, his home is a place where family can congregate just to hang out, share a meal, talk life-talk, and enjoy the peace and sounds of the woods.

Food:

It is not uncommon for Mike to take on a spontaneous dinner date with his wife to explore a new eatery in town, or to just go back to an old favorite. It’s not about the food, it’s the relationship spike that ensues when dining with a loved one. An added benefit is exploring new eateries!

Fun:

On a breezy spring, summer, or fall day, you can find Mike in his garage workshop with the doors and windows wide open, surrounding himself with the seasonal sounds and smells of the Woods of Groveland Township. And there is Mike with his table saw, trying to get that angle cut just right. Arghh!

Fiction:

Mike is a dreamer. He thinks the Tigers will win the World Series in 2023.
