Balancing life and sport
Having secured contracts all around Australia, in Europe and Asia, Michael knows and intimately understands the challenges of balancing your career, performance and life. With a wife and young family based on the Gold Coast, he's had to spend years juggling his football schedule with that of his family and formulate a career path that would allow him to spend more time at home.
Transition and the real world
Throughout a professional sporting career, there will be ups and downs, highs and lows, contracts won and lost, matches won and lost. Knowing your value and knowing when and how to transition is key to minimising the lows and leveraging the highs. Whether you're looking to secure your first professional contract or wrapping up your last, Michael offers mentoring sessions to make the most out of every opportunity.
