"He can outline the structure you need to get you on the track to set and complete your goals."



"Mike asks the hard questions and really makes you think about your situation. He is not afraid to let you know when you are wrong or going down the wrong path - but he also meets you and walks with you through that path and rejoices with you in your victories. ...One of the many things Michael Carstens has taught me in the last 20 years is that the goal is victory in my trials, not deliverance from them."
