    Hey, I'm Mike Gardon. In 2018 work wasn't working for me, so I broke it - on purpose. My Fortune 500 job had me frustrated lonely and wanting more, so I methodically built a roadmap out. In the process I designed a work-life around what was most important to me.

    Now I help people do the same - embrace change and set up systems to move toward their dreams. Whether you want to break into a better career fit, or break work all together and work for yourself - it doesn't matter. The skills, tools, frameworks and mindset is the same to execute a life changing career transformation.

    Topics I write about here:

    • Odds based decision making
    • Frameworks for decisions
    • Making bold decisions
    • Building confidence
    • Mitigating risk
    • Resilience
    • Purpose
    • Dreams
