Coaches use their skills in a number of different ways and in a variety of settings. Today, Mike Howerton shares with us how his journey of self-discovery and self-leadership led him to a full-time position as an EntreLeadership Executive Coach with Ramsey Solutions.

Tune in to learn:

  • How to step out in faith, with a blurry vision, and then rely on the Lord to reveal the true vision for your business.
  • Ways to blend the gifts and talents God’s given you to build a thriving career.
  • New ways of thinking & being that can open doors you never thought possible.
  • About Mike Howerton

Mike serves as an EntreLeadership Executive Coach for Ramsey Solutions. He is skilled in partnering with leaders, giving them space to talk about what is really going on, as he helps them make decisions that are in alignment with what matters most so they can lead with confidence.
