Starting his career in Corporate America working for one of the world’s top rated banks, U.S. Bank.

While working for U.S. Bank, he spent a great deal of time working with all clientele ranging from low to high profile and also serving as a specialist working with Small Business owners. While working for U.S. Bank, Michael found it evident that our education system did not provide Americans with the financial literacy to budget and/or plan for their retirements, not enough Small Business owners knew how to run their finances. This is when he decided to leave his management position at U.S. Bank and start giving back to his community through Financial Literacy education, budgeting, creative investment strategies, and retirement planning, often hosting Seminars and Webinars.
