About Mike Pietrzak

By age 8 I figured out that money and prestige were flimsy life goals. I decided my mission would be:

  • To be of service to the world, and work to end suffering.

  • To live life as a joyful adventure—even the pain and loss.

  • To constantly improve my mind, body, heart, guts, and spirit.

After graduate school I worked in politics, volunteered in a United Nations refugee camp, and traveled to 50 countries.

I was doing important work, but hadn’t yet accessed the genius and power to deliver at my highest potential.

I told myself, “I know I’m capable of so much more!”

I went to work on myself instead of fixing the world. I read voraciously. I discovered powerful coaches. I found elite fitness. I found my life’s partner and started a family. I beat depression and tamed alcohol.

I stepped into my calling as a serial entrepreneur who is solving the world’s problems. I started a social enterprise to bring solar lighting to African villages, a men's lifestyle brand, a literary magazine, and a writer training company.

And I discovered my power as a coach who helps others grow into their own inborn, unlimited potential.

Since 2017 I have been coaching exceptional people who want to get out of their own way and finally start doing what they believe is most important in this life and this world.

Work Experience

  • I founded six businesses (with varying degrees of success!) from nothing, including an energy company in Africa, an ecommerce lifestyle brand, and an education and training platform for writers.

  • I've consulted for governments and the United Nations in the fields of health, culture, employment & training, environment, and infrastructure.

  • I'm a sought-after freelance writer for publications like Success Magazine. I love writing about business, law of attraction, self-help, psychology, neuroscience, and business.

  • I have volunteered for causes including political campaigns, drug addiction, hunger, and humanitarian emergencies.

Life Experience

  • I have lived on 3 continents and have traveled to more than 50 countries. I'm fluent in English and conversational in French and Spanish.

  • I'm married to my best friend, and a dad to a wild toddler. I've survived losing 2 great loves. I continue to do the inner work needed to become a whole human.

  • I've backpacked across Africa, Europe, and Asia solo, snowbird in the Caribbean, scuba dive, skydive, talk to strangers, am a regular public speaker, and, as a rule, do everything that scares me.

  • I'm a CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting fanatic, and recently started training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I quit both smoking and drinking but don't mind if you do.
