Gamification has been used in countless businesses to improve implementation of their offering, increase accountability, and even to build brand loyalty. But can playing a game actually reveal valuable information about who you are as a business owner? Can gamifying your life help you achieve goals that have been outside of your reach for far too long?

Michael, a seasoned coach with over 30 years of experience, introduces a unique framework that helps entrepreneurs turn their coaching businesses into impactful, revenue-generating ventures that align with their passion.
