"I hired Mike as my coach a few months after I started my franchise business to help me stabilize my emotions and anxiety over the entrepreneurial roller coaster. His coaching quickly expanded to my health, personal power, vision, relationships, business strategies and more.
Through a varied approach ranging from spiritual and emotional growth to mental clarity and executive business coaching, Mike was able to get to the core of a multitude of issues with which I was struggling. Mike’s honesty, level of care, passion and ability to problem-solve was remarkable.
After coaching with Mike I can honestly say I am a completely different person with how I approach my daily life and long-term vision. I am happier than ever and am focused on the journey, not just the results. My business’ monthly sales nearly tripled during my coaching term with Mike. I was profitable the month after hiring Mike, only 3 months after opening the business! After completing the first year of my business, I was given an award by my franchise for 2nd highest sales across the country for a new office. And my current rate of sales growth and profitability are years ahead of schedule.
With Mike’s help, I was able to change my inner world which had a direct effect on my outer world. The relationship with my family, my business results and of course, my own happiness, have all grown for the better through my work with Mike!"
- Jordan Black, Franchise Owner, Two Maids & A Mop
"As the owner of a small business, I love to have someone to brainstorm with. It makes it even better if this person is a trusted resource that knows your business well but doesn't have a stake in the outcome.
I hired Mike Kitko because I was looking for someone to help me take my company to the next level. It has worked out so well. He has really come to understand our company, our team, and our culture.
He is someone I trust to go to when I need to talk through a tough decision. He has brought several blind spots to the surface that I didn't know were holding our team back.
I really love our weekly talks and they either make me think about something in a different way or lead to a breakthrough I didn't see coming.
He has become an awesome resource for me and our leadership team."
- Bryan Schroeder, Owner and CEO of Fasterhouse (Real Estate Investment Company)
"Mike is an incredible executive coach. After working with him for a short period of time, he provided me with the tools and resources to recognize and realize my full potential.
His energy is infectious. I have never met someone with so much to give to others. He is down-to-earth but has a very powerful way of engaging clients. He was able to provide me strategies to recognize my strengths and accept them, increase my confidence, and overcome my fears.
He recommended meditation and visualization, which I still use today. I reached out to him recently when I was preparing for a presentation to a very large audience and his response was, ‘Your presentation was amazing! You were awesome!’ When I told him I hadn’t completed it yet, he said, ‘Visualize the end… everyone telling you you did a great job, and you will have done a great job.’ I continue to use that technique today and it’s been very effective.
He is empowering, inspirational, thoughtful, and extremely driven. Working with Mike will result in reaching your full potential. I strongly recommend Mike to anyone searching for an improved ability to be all that you are destined to be."
- Tony Garavaglia, Senior Vice President, Willis, Towers, Watson
"I saw you passionately speak to our group about financial scarcity and poverty, and the poor money mind-set and heart-set which causes and keeps people stuck in a victim mentality.
Your passion and advanced thinking break people free from their existing state.
You make Dave Ramsey sound like a stale Econ professor.”
- Skip Crouch, Entrepreneur
"Mike, you are indeed amazingly insightful, energetic, and effective. You have gotten me and my business focused and moving forward. Thanks for everything you've done for me and my people!"
- Craig Caesar, CEO of Caesar Creative and Maker Makers
"I originally hired Mike for business only. Soon after we started working together, I realized with where I was in my life I was not ready to work on my business.
I was going through a huge transition. Mike was able to be flexible and help me through a difficult time. Mike is one incredible business coach with the things he taught me, but what Mike focuses on and will tell you will change your life. It’s stuff that might not make much sense at first but then over time it just sinks in and you finally realize how much it changed your whole perspective on the world. Mike has changed my life for the better and it is one magical world now.
Sometimes it’s hard to realize why something didn't work out the way you had planned it, but I now realize why Mike was my coach during this difficult time in my life.
Mike, I've had a lot of people help me in my life, but you were the turning point. You were the game-changer. I thank God for you every single day."
- Danielle Eisenberg, Entrepreneur
"Working with Mike is like deep tissue massage for the brain!"
- Bryan Barts, Wealth Advisor, Enterprise Bank & Trust
"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."
- Jervon Hill, Real Estate Entrepreneur
“You have found your passion in speaking and coaching and I truly appreciate you. If anyone is struggling through a tough time, lacking some confidence or is successful in one aspect of life but feeling empty in others Mike Kitko is your guy.
Mike is an incredible coach and will truly help you move through the path to self-mastery. It may not always be comfortable but growth and change never are. It is so worth it though. Mike is phenomenal I recommend him and use things I have learned through him daily.”
- James Brinkmann, Owner and Team Leader, The Fidelis Group Real Estate Team
“I just have to give a shout out to the amazing Mike Kitko for changing my life! I have only known this dude for a short time but this guy has not only encouraged me to break free of my fear but to crush it and fully step into my most authentic self.
I have always loved Willow Tree, and now that I can focus on building my new business, Beeson Editing Services, LLC, I have never been happier. When I left my part-time job, I was terrified that I wouldn't make enough, that I was making the wrong decision, that I was doing the worst thing I could do for our family, but boy was I wrong! Not only am I the happiest I've ever been, but I have already replaced that income and on my way to surpassing it.
If you feel like something is holding you back, talk to Mike. He will not only help you grow as a person, but he will increase your quality of life by a thousand. Thanks, Mike! Check out his FB page or go to his blog to be inspired and encouraged every day.”
- Jessica Beeson, Owner, Beeson Editing Services
"Mike is crazy good at what he does. I have found a new hope and look on life with him! 100% grateful for him in my life and recommend him with complete confidence."
- Sera Jennings, Real Estate Entrepreneur
"Mike is an inspirational and transformative coach who walks his talk! I am extremely grateful for taking the opportunity to work with him and witness his passion for helping people transform their lives while I participated in his Self-Mastery for Business-Mastery Course.
Mike has a gift for helping people shift their mindset from suffering, sacrifice, and scarcity to a life of joy, abundance, love, and harmony. Mike’s authenticity about his challenges, struggles, and success, professional expertise, and knowledge, along with our assigned monthly book readings, journal exercises, and group discussions have helped me to “Stop Playing Small.”
"Thanks to Mike’s course, I am releasing my fear of letting go of my healing practice, which no longer brings joy. I am shifting my mindset to focusing on my heart’s desire to serve people as a spiritual teacher instead of focusing on the negative thoughts about why I cannot be a spiritual teacher. Mike’s course was healing and life-changing."
- Connie Batsell, Coaching Student
"I started coaching with Mike 2 months ago and in that time frame, some amazing things have happened!
"My family life had gotten to the point where my two kids were fighting nonstop, complaining and argumentative with me. In fact, it actually felt out of control! I have learned some amazing techniques for creating the outcomes I wish to see. And from my own personal growth in self-love, I now see that my children are benefitting and peace, respect, and politeness have returned to our home.
"As for my business, I own my own specialty vision clinic, Vision For Life, and the mindset shifts that I have made have been such a blessing! I am no longer blocking the gifts God has for me, because of a poor mindset. I even started my coaching business and am signing 3 doctors I will be working within the next month (revenue totaling 75k)!
"Since I began, I have gained a greater sense of self, purpose, peace, love, and gratitude. I highly recommend that anyone considering coaching with Mike, just take the plunge. Your life will be forever changed!"
- Dr. Julie Steinhauer, Owner, Vision For Life
"When I began meeting with Mike, I was unsure how to grow my business. I felt like I was struggling, treading water, working too hard and never gaining any ground.
Over the next few months, he opened my eyes to new ways of seeing situations, offering different perspectives and gently challenging me to choose how I wanted my business and my life to look.
I know Mike always had my best interest in mind and that his primary coaching goal was to see me grow as an individual, expanding my awareness of what a powerful spiritual being I am and to use my gifts to create a life I love.
During our time together it became clear that the business I was trying to grow was not feeding my soul and I was able to start moving in a direction more in-line with my purpose. Mike also offered significant insight into a personal family issue that was draining my ability to live my life to its fullest. He offered his unconditional support as I made changes in my foundational belief system and emerged free to make choices that were based solely in my best interest.
I will be forever grateful for the loving guidance Mike has shown me and for the life changes I have experienced. While I’m still working towards creating a new career, my current business no longer feels like a struggle.
I have regained my personal power in my family matters and overall feel confident in making decisions that will allow me to continue to build an amazing life.
In deepest appreciation and Love."
- Linda Hoff, Owner, Sugar Spa STL
"Mike helped me through some of the craziest times in my life. He helped me to see my true value and potential in all areas of my life. He was able to get into areas of my brain that I wouldn't otherwise have known were there. He always approached me with love and kindness. I could feel his care and love in every conversation we had. He has great intuition and I believe he can help anybody with where they are trying to go. Mike was very real in his approach with me, but also gave me space to fill certain roles when all I needed was a buddy to bounce ideas off of.
"I highly suggest a conversation with this man!"
- Corey Boyles, Real Estate Professional
"Working with Mike has transformed my life. I am more confident and emotionally courageous than ever.
Through the path of spirituality while working with Mike I've become more self-aware, grown my business, and started honoring my boundaries. He helped me learn to accept the parts of myself I've been disowning and fully embrace my amazingness.
It's been one of the best investments I've ever made."
- Josh Wiesler, Real Estate Investor
"Mike Kitko you seriously have changed my life. Because of this guy, I am FINALLY able to soar!
The way you coach is magical!
Anyone that is able to work with you is truly blessed. Thank you for believing in me and helping me see the gifts that have always been inside of me. It’s taken time, but you have finally helped me get to the point where I feel fully aligned.
Thank you, sir! You without a doubt have changed my world!"
- Carly Black, Owner of Rivulet, Entrepreneur
"Mike is an amazing coach and a great person! He is very caring and is not afraid to call you out on any issues that he sees. He holds you accountable while providing you with a guiding hand along your path. I have appreciated being a part of Mike’s ‘Self-Mastery for Business-Mastery Course’ and being able to learn directly from Mike.
"Mike fostered an environment to allow people to share and grow together no matter where they are at in life. He is also a great business coach. I have had the pleasure of being on a business team that he has coached. His insights are so valuable to our organization and he is always able to provide a good outsider experience. Mike is able to combine the spiritual aspects of your life to your business as well. He has helped put together all aspects of my life to ultimately help me work on becoming a better individual and a better professional."

- Tony Fonte, Coach, Speaker, Author
"I signed up for Mike’s Self-Mastery for Business-Mastery course with considerable reservations about how his philosophy and my philosophy for life would differ.
It was a remarkable program once I was able to open my mind to alternative ways of looking at how we process and move forward in life. The breakthroughs that I’ve had in the past five months are monumental. However, I believe the greatest help came from Mike personally as we sat down one on one.
He has a great understanding of how people operate. And how to pull them out of the current situations into a powerful situation."
- Tim Grimmet, Coach and Real Estate Investor
"Mike is an absolutely incredible business and life coach. Every day he challenges me to be the man, husband, father, friend, and employee that the world demands of me. I have only been working with Mike for a little under 6 months but the changes, the improvements, and the growth has been exponential.
I consider Mike so much more than just a business coach, but he truly is a friend that has changed my life. The ability that Mike has to dig into the core and identify what is holding you back and the keys to unlock your full potential is amazing. I am by no means a finished product but for the first time in a long time I finally feel like I am worth it and I can SEE the man I want to be in business, in my families life, and in the world."
- Richard Appelbaum, Real Estate Entrepreneur
"As a Life Coach, I understand what it takes to make a difference in others' lives. When I first met Mike Kitko I sensed his sincerity and excitement to bring the best out of everyone that comes in his path.
I can say he helped me take my own coaching career to the next level. Now that Mike and I have grown closer, the joy of just being in his presence is not only uplifting but contagious.
Being of the same mindset as Mike, which is abundance and to strive to be the best, I highly recommend Mr. Kitko as a phenomenal business coach.
I only wish we had more people like Mike Kitko."
- Michael Tobin, Owner of The Tobin Company

It’s definitely a work in progress that will never end but I am so impressed with Mike’s leadership, guidance and unique approach to personal growth."
- Daniel Dawson, Owner, St. Louis Wealth Builders
"I have known Mike for many years and he has been a person who I have gone to for advice. While serving in the Marine Corps overseas he helped me get through some tough times.
I can honestly say working with Mike Kitko has changed my life. This was my first experience working with a coach. I was always under the impression that I could do it myself but could never get anywhere. I finally decided to join the Life-Mastery course. From week 1, I was hooked. I knew this is exactly what I needed to start my journey to becoming a better person. Between the information and working through the exercises, I uncovered so much that I had subconsciously been hiding from myself. Working with Mike and taking his course was such an outstanding experience that when the opportunity came to join his membership group, I jumped at it. This group works together to show up and lead. One of the aspects of the group is a monthly call. This provides support and inspiration for the members to be their true selves. It is something I look forward to growing with.
The changes I have experienced have been noticed by so many people. Where I used to explode or shut down, I now can accept life and understand how I create my situations. His words may not be what I always want, but it is what I need to hear.
I can't thank Mike enough for the impact he has provided on my life."
- Brian Stock, United States Marine Corps comrade and coaching student
"Mike is awesome. To me, he spoke my truth I needed to hear. I was instantly connected to him on a SOUL level and saw he was REAL. Highly recommend him."

"Two months ago I had the most uncomfortable conversation of my life with Mike Kitko. Little did I know that one zoom call would be the beginning of the second phase of my business.
I’ve since started working with Mike regularly and have had the two best months in my business since we opened.
If you’re a fellow business owner, go snoop around on Mike and his coaching opportunities...stalk him a little like I did. Then hire him! I’m so glad I did!"
- Chasity Thebeau, Farmer's Insurance Agency Owner
"I have never had luck with coaches. All of them left me with a bad feeling. Mike Kitko Is the ONLY coach I have ever had that actually changed my life in a good way! Love you brother!!!"
- Sommer Farris, Entrepreneur
"Let me tell y'all something right now. If you are looking to start/grow/expand your own business, hire Mike Kitko as your coach. I'm wrapping up a six month life-mastery course with him and my business is taking off. I've overcome my fears (not that I don't still have them, but I know how to push past them now), I've released myself from victim mode (which I didn't know I was in until he pointed it out), I have a clear vision of what I want for my life and my business, and numerous other pieces of insight and knowledge were gained. Check out his website. Do yourself this favor. Like yesterday."
- Danielle Goldsmith, Entrepreneur
"Through my participation in Mike's program I was able gain clarity in my business and life on how I want to serve others and how I can express it in a way that's me. Because of that I was able let go of being perfect and was able to show up as myself and that helped create the best month of my business so far. That best part of that is it wasn't as hard to do to. I get to be me, run a business I love helping others with their careers, and make money."
- Brad Finkeldei, Entrepreneur
"I attended Mike's and Angie's first live event this past Saturday. Nothing short of radical transformation occurred. They lead passionately, receptively, humbly, and compassionately. I felt so energized after leaving, and the growth continued exponentially even after leaving the space. Due to the reframing of deep subconscious beliefs at this event, I’ve had a series of conscious, divinely spontaneous epiphanies bubble to the surface. The blessings and insights I received have empowered me to claim many truths that I was in fear of before. Thank you so much for continuing to shine your lights"
- Rose Leopold, Entrepreneur
“Mike Kitko's membership has provided me with accountability, support, and encouragement in my personal, professional, and spiritual growth journey. The training modules and videos give me something to work on and think about every week. The video calls are inspiring and motivating. This is an intimate group of men who are looking to change their lives for the better. There is constant communication in our group chat, and I never feel afraid to share something that’s meaningful to me. The other men in the group have had experiences that I haven’t, that I can learn from. I’m looking forward to seeing this group grow and how it will continue to affect me and my personal growth.“
- Wes Hoffman, corporate recruiter
"Mike Kitko is the real deal. I can’t express how obviously different my life is now compared to before I’ve been working with Mike. And it has only been 3 weeks!! I gave Mike a goal that I wanted to hit $10,000 a month additionally in my business. We’re almost a month in, and I am having serious reconsiderations that I shot too low with that goal. I don’t know what fabric this man is cut from, but whatever cloth it is, I’m wrapping my goals in it. Also, I have the ability to be more present and not depend on people so much. I am now a more emotionally secure man. My friends are noticing something different about me. I have a level of inner confidence that I felt guilty to claim before. And now I’m claiming it. I am a Million Dollar Man now. Thank you so much, Mike. I cannot wait until our next session."
