Welcome to MichaelDevers.com, my home on the web!
I’ve been threatened by Garth Brooks, warned not to touch Shania Twain, broken into a bowling alley with the Dixie Chicks, told by Vince Gill that he hoped I choked on my food, and spent a very scary night in a hotel room with David Allan Coe.
I’m so clearly beloved that you’re probably wondering why you’ve never heard of me before.
I’ve spent 25+ years working behind the scenes (with the exception of a few years on stage with the Groobees, which ended when the manager – me – fired the bass player – me) to help individuals, groups, non-profits, and companies achieve their biggest goals and dreams. Along the way I’ve been fortunate to work with Grammy winners, Oscar winners, sole proprietors, and publicly-traded companies. I’ve worked in industries as diverse as music, organ donation, and telecommunications.
Despite the diversity of people, industries, and size and scale – they all had one thing in common: they had something big they wanted to accomplish and needed help figuring out how to do it. In addition, despite this same diversity, my job has always been the same: I listen, connect the dots, and execute.
My approach to helping others achieve their biggest objectives comes down to three simple steps:
- Establish Goals
- Take Action
- No Exceptions
While the steps are simple, that doesn’t mean it’s easy.
This blog is a place for me to capture thoughts, concepts, and ideas related to all three of these aspects as well as random observations on personal development. While I hope that people will find value in what I’ve written, it’s primarily a tool to remind myself of these things.
