“I can't believe how far I've come after my coaching sessions with Michael! He has completely changed the way that I think about myself as a creative by teaching me the skills I needed to go from being a designer to a creative director. I now have the confidence to walk in client meetings and sit on the decision-making table. My boss thinks that the coaching sessions with Michael Janda are the best investment we ever made!” — Kaltrina Ferizi, Creative Director, Adlantica

“Michael’s coaching sessions provide invaluable advice and experience that would take us years to figure out ourselves in our Shopify Design and Development Agency. He listens to our goals and current situation and provides super easy to follow steps to stay on the right track, without overwhelm.” — Peter Carter, Director, Rainy City Marketing

"I’ve hired 3 different coaches in the past and all of them were a total nightmare. Then about a year later……my best friend was telling me about this guy, Michael Janda. He said, he had like a 2 hour chat with him and it completely changed his approach on how is was going to run his business! Michael and I have been working with each other for months and it was been massive for me personally and professionally. He’s been an awesome resource to help bounce ideas off of, he helps keep me accountable, and has given me a clear direction on the steps I need to take to reach my goals. He helped me implement a weekly sales tracking system so I can determine where the business is coming from and what additional investments I need to make to help drive more business. He’s guided me through a strategic, “post-project process” that I never would have thought of. With his awesome design background, he helped are refine my presentations which helped me land a MASSIVE client, who literally said, “I love the way you have this all laid out, this is exactly what we were hoping.” His Calendly is “More Janda” - which is how I feel!! MORE JANDA!!" — Mark Wonderlin, Founder, Mosaic Media Films
