A Little About Me

Soul searching? I can help you become the powerful professional and lover of life you've always dreamed of being. My name is Mike Kitko, Executive Self-Mastery Coach, Leadership Coach, speaker, and author. I found my calling in coaching just a few years ago after my own colossal career and personal meltdown led me to make drastic, wonderful, difficult, life-affirming change.

For most of my adult life, I let the imposter in me be in charge. I am a Marine with an MBA. I have decades of high-dollar Fortune 500 corporate leadership success creating prosperity for companies worth as much as $350 million dollars, and yet I struggled with confidence and knowing how to feel fulfilled.  I was empty inside and never felt good enough. Outwardly, I was a successful executive and showed off my wealth with material things while my “house” was falling down around me.

The Science of Life-Mastery

As I was losing everything, I finally put my ego aside and sought help. I reached out to a coach who helped me identify that my unhappiness, abuse, and anger stemmed from a combination of physical, mental, and emotional deficits and lies. I learned how to overcome adversity and care for my body, mind, emotions, and soul with self-mastery.

Because of my own executive coach and the thousands of hours of intense study of life-mastery and human behavior by the greats, I am now blessed with the ability to receive what the universe has been trying to give me all along (instead of forcing things to happen). I have an infectious energy for life, internal power and confidence to match how people perceive me externally, and relationship and financial prosperity beyond my wildest dreams.

"I often say, I feel like I have love and happiness oozing out of my eyeballs as a result of living intentional, purposeful, and in- service to others by using my story, energy, gifts, and talents. I simply live my true, genuine, authentic life. Others thrive on that as well."

From Abuser to Giver

I have saluted a sitting President while a member of a Marine Honor Guard, was ranked the #1 Non-Commissioned Officer in my Marine unit, held executive positions in Fortune 500 companies, and was viewed as a high-potential leader in almost every organization for which I worked.

However, I battled self-worth, self-respect, and self-esteem issues my entire life which ultimately led to the abuse of my marriage, family, professional career, and health.

The outcome of not understanding my worth and living an unintentional life was the brink of divorce, children who had witnessed the unthinkable, alcoholism, no job, and 280lbs. of undisciplined chaos.

I found that the world, including those close to us, treats us exactly how we feel about ourselves.

That all came to an end when I made a decision to pursue a journey of self-mastery. I hired a coach, and daily, I "put my mask on first" by exercising, getting proper nutrition, hydrating, meditating, reading, learning, and challenging my own boundaries and comfort levels. By taking care of my own basic physical, mental, and emotional needs as a priority, I ultimately gave permission to those around me to do the same.
Where once my inability to understand my emotions created alcoholism, uncontrolled anger, and ballistic rage...now my intensity and energy lights up and inspires souls. Where once my inner glutton consumed absurd quantities of sugar, processed foods, and poison...now my super-charged consumption of protein and healthy carbs fuels the best physical health and strength I have ever experienced.

My ego which once inflicted mental and emotional harm on others due to fear of being outshined, competition, and constant comparison is now the same source of the overflowing energy, clarity, and love that I am continually discovering and pouring into others.

The Ugly Beautiful Truth

Since April 2016 I have:

  • Recovered from active alcoholism.
  • Salvaged my family from divorce and collapse.
  • Lost 85 lbs.
  • Gained physical strength that I never thought possible – even in the USMC.
  • Realized that fear is ever-present in all of us and serves as a guide to freedom.
  • Developed an emotional awareness that keeps me peaceful, grounded, and centered, while still allowing my powerful emotions to propel me without harm to others.
  • Read close to 200 books and studied my mentors (Michael Singer, Eckard Tolle, David Hawkins,  Neville Goddard).
  • Became a Certified Business and Life Coach.
  • Helped many executives, business leaders, and entrepreneurs find the success they craved.
  • Built a 6-figure personal and business leadership coaching business which fully replaced my executive salary.
  • Been a featured speaker to a room of 250.
  • Coached many to find inner peace, freedom, and success.
  • Started writing a book to be published in 2019.
  • Still have a coach who helps keep me pointed due north physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.
  • Found the life of my dreams!

Why don’t you have an executive or business coach? Is it beneath you? Too much pride? If so, that’s arrogance. Arrogance won’t fuel fulfillment. I promise it won’t. I already tried that in the first half of my life...not the second. I deserve better and so do you!

“When you become internally powerful, you become rich in every way!”

My Mission

My inner struggle is over. I will continue to live with authenticity and share what I’ve learned by coaching others. It is with the deepest sincerity that I want everyone who is ready to reinvent themselves to go for it! To know that no matter what is before you, you can reach your full potential and have unlimited success, and I am here to see that you do.

My mission is to help those I coach and teach feel as free as I do and avoid hitting rock bottom (as I did) before learning to live. My edgy one-on-one coaching, courses, and live events, are about intentional relationships, serving others, and changing lives, not about the transaction.

"I highly recommend Mike to any and everyone. He's not just a coach, mentor or accountability partner. Most importantly he's a friend. First time I sat with Mike he read me like a book, felt like he knew my ins and outs. He's amazing at what he does. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't be on the path I’m on or I wouldn't be the person I am. He's the reason I pick up the crown I've been so afraid to touch."

Coaching From Experience

I have found even with titles, power, money, and fame, business executives still need to be connected with someone who can support them by being a confidante, advisor, coach, and counselor... all with their very best interest in mind. 

During our coaching sessions, you will take a journey of life-mastery and entrepreneurial-mastery as I help you become fully self-aware, gain confidence and strength, realize complete clarity on your desires and goals, and help hold you accountable for your own happiness and well-being. Ultimately, you will grow on a cellular level and go beyond what you thought was possible until freedom and prosperity unfold before you.


Let's Connect

There are plenty of coaches out there so "what makes Mike Kitko different?" One major advantage I have is that I’m coaching from experience, not theory. I know what works because I live it every day.

If you like bold, edgy, honest, straight-forward no-nonsense relationships, then my coaching style may work for you. If you're willing to connect deeply and are itching to change; if you're open to learning, like accountability, want to transform your spirit, serve others, and find lifelong clarity, then we need to have a conversation. The only way to know if we're a good fit is to contact me today and let's have a conversation. 636-288-0008
