“I’ve been making successful transitions all my life… and I love helping people transition themselves.” Mike Greer

The first thing to know about Mike Greer is this: Just call him Greer.

Greer has worn many hats over the years, entrepreneur, a military career, excelling at sports (from high school football, to a current triathlon competitor), and being a father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

His natural gift for seeing the right plan to move towards a goal has not only helped Greer transition through his own seasons of life and business, but helps others do the same.

Transition coaching is for anyone who wants to move forward successfully.

Greer’s been called “ageless” and speaks on his “Eleven Points of Healthy Ageless Living”, but most people wouldn’t guess he’s also referred to as a combination of the Road Runner and Daffy Duck! And as you’ll see in his blog, an amateur movie reviewer.

“Careers, sports, relationships all change. But you can transition in ways that are true to you. The real you doesn’t change just because of age. Life is best lived when you never stop!”

As a young, driven professional, I was in need of guidance on how to achieve personal greatness in my career path and personal self. Acknowledging that I needed to reach out for help on how to best achieve this goal, I turned to my coach, Mike Greer.

He provided me with great ammunition to separate myself from others. After I got my dream job in my dream city, I realized I had to up-root my life. While this transition was filled with excitement, there were times of uncertainty and negative feedback from loved ones. I was able to discuss with Greer my highs and lows, and he helped me through each by bringing me back to the present. Thanks for helping me achieve big dreams, and giving me the courage to find an even bigger one.

My how time flies. After swearing in son Michael John as a 2nd Lt. I look up and now he has served in Iraq, Bosnia, and has risen to the rank of Lt. Colonel. He will probably surpass my rank of Lt. Colonel and if he does, he will get a smart salute and a great big hand shake.
