How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I like to determine early on if I can be helpful, and if so deliver some immediate advice. If the advice is well-received, acted on and there is a favorable result, I stay in the mix. If not, I'm wasting peoples' time.

Cindy Samco

Michael is a go getter. It has been a pleasure working with him.
Marcus Blankenship
We worked together  •  Owner, CREO Agency / MarcusBlankenship.com and Project Director / Advisor, Gistia - Web & Mobile Apps.
Michael cares deeply about his customers and his people, and has created a company which provides amazing value to both sides. He's honest, ... driven and whip-smart. He accomplishes what he puts his mind to, and I'm pleased to be able to vouch for him.
Ivan Uhler
We worked together  •  Owner, Temecula Construction, LLC and Owner, Temecula Handyman.
He understands how tech works, how rapidly it changes and how to leverage it to best suit a clients needs.
Greg Sanderson, MBA
We worked together  •  Marketing Manager, Young Innovations, Inc.. Previously Product Marketing Manager, Young Innovations, Inc..
Micheal consistently brings new ideas and strategies to the table. He is always trying to push the quality and strategy of work that he does ... for himself and his customers so they are more profitable and more optimally setup for future growth and development.
Darin Lynch
We worked together  •  Founder and CEO, Irish Titan. Previously Associate, The Platinum Group. University of Iowa grad.
Michael has impressed me from the very first time we've worked together. Bright, full of integrity.
Henry Gonzalez
We worked together  •  Owner, Opulent Items.
Because he can figure things out from a technical and entrepreneurial POV, but he also demonstrates a lot of business intuition.
Isaiah Bollinger
They're my friends  •  Co-founder and C.E.O, Trellis. Previously Digital Marketing Consultant, SuperMedia LLC.
Michael has a lot of experience working in the eCommerce space and is a great eCommerce expert.
Dru Michaels
We worked together  •  Director of Retail Products, Our State.
Michael listens! He genuinely works for the partner or client and does not attempt to "sell" the person on what he (Michael) wants to do but ... rather truly cares that he deliver a finished product that represents what the founder or investor seeks to accomplish. He is great about including in his recommendations and/or advice, the "extras" that he thinks will enhance or help propel a project forward but in the end he can keep it as simple as the client/founder feels (s)he has the time and/or money to invest. Michael is flexible and he is creative both from a design standpoint but from a strategic perspective as well. Creativity is highly under utilized and sorely misunderstood when it comes to website design, e-commerce, and content. Michael is strong in all three areas and certainly can speak the "geek-speak". From boiler plate to board room - he's your guy!
Philip Ideson
We worked together  •  Founder & Host, The Art of Procurement.
I recommend Michael without hesitation. In the time we have worked together, I have been particularly impressed with his drive, resourceful ... ness, work ethic and creativity. He has already built a successful business from the ground up and he definitely knows what it takes. In my opinion, the right co-founder will help Michael focus on what he does best.

Jon Queen
We worked together  •  Founder/Chief Strategy & UX Officer, Eltoro Interactive. Expert in eCommerce & digital marketing servicing Fortune500 clients for 16 years
Jon combines an extreme amount of drive with an incisive intelligence that blows me away every time. He's a formidable player and I am privi ... leged to know him. He'd be an amazing co-founder, so be prepared to hustle -- Jon doesn't mess around.

Dru Michaels
We worked together  •  Director of Retail Products, Our State.
Dru knows her stuff. She's worked with great e-commerce companies and has the education to prove it. I highly recommend her for senior proje ... ct management / business analysis of e-commerce projects.

Jon Queen
We worked together  •  Founder/Chief Strategy & UX Officer, Eltoro Interactive. Expert in eCommerce & digital marketing servicing Fortune500 clients for 16 years
Jon has an exceptional intellect and more than a dozen years of experience. He will tell it like it is every time. He has a highly refined s ... ense of what works and what doesn't which translates into an uncanny ability to cut through the mix with pointed and powerful strategic advice.
