…a look into how a young man from Canada is making headway helping others achieve their goals
As a student and college level athlete Michael Carbone had it all made for him, he was being scouted by a number of Major League talent hunters, the prospects looks great for him as he ventured into the third year of his college level baseball career/ as a second basemen. Just then when things looked their brightest he was struck in back by a ripping fastball, the adrenaline of having 20,000 spectators watch him dulled the pain but after a while it came back. Being a tough athlete he fought through the pain and just kept playing, even after getting a few X-rays which revealed nothing out of the ordinary the pain wouldn’t subside. The team doctor and even the coaches just told him it was a bruise and to keep playing. He kept on swinging and playing at his super octane level, but it couldn’t last as the throbbing from his back wouldn’t stop. Later a CTscan revealed a fractured vertebrate, “I’m just happy I didn’t break my back” Michael later told us. Low and behold his playing level subsided and the prospects of playing in the big leagues slowly died away.
Michael being a lifelong athlete know there was nothing he couldn’t push himself to do. Now with the new void in his days where baseball used to occupy his time there was plenty of time of him to get into other sports, so why not try on some new shoes?
“I just wanted to do a sport where I was in full control of the outcome”
Finishing his first marathon in Montreal with only 4 months training of training his belt Michael felt as if he had got the gold, but upon coming back to work his colleagues asked him, “ok so now that you finished a marathon what’s next?” Naturally Michael was surprised but decided to get involved with the next level of endurance athlete Ironmen! His Ironman journey would take him to Hawaii and Vancouver and teach himself about his potential in more ways then he thought possible. At the time Michael didn’t know how to swim but Ironman races include a 2 mile swim, so Michael knew this would push him to the limit and force him to overcome.
9 months later he finished his first Ironman. Time for a mindshift!
The once seemingly impossible feat of finishing an Ironman race was something Michael had just done. Once he signed up for the race 9 months prior he didn’t know how to swim properly, he didn’t know really hot to train properly, he didn’t have a serious bike, he was totally unprepared both physically and mentally. This was the key to his success.
“usually to accomplish Something it’s not ones ability to know how to do something, it’s one’s drive TO DO something”
Michaels lack of knowledge and physical ability were bumps in the road but with his determination and drive to cross the finish line he overcame every hurdle in his path. He learned how to adapt his body and mind to achieve success.
Once the race was finished this new sense of seemingly unattainable successes in other aspects of his life somehow seemed much easier to overcome. The first hurdle to overcome was of course his job.
The 9-5 rate race is what most of us are to some degree stuck in. This notion to work form a large corporation pushing papers and adhering to the companies agendas was just the status quo and what Michael had been taught in both school and his social circle. But there were those that walked to another beat and Michael wanted to be like them. Not knowing how but just knowing that he wanted to free himself of the shackles of his day to day job he was trapped in.
Why now start an online businesses? Sounds easy right? Just start a website and the clients start pouring in? Well now that we all use the internet and know how much competition there is out there you can guess, it’s not so easy, right?
Michael knew he wanted to help others achieve their goals but didn’t know how. Drawing from his experience with playing poker he decided to teach people how to play better poker through his website. Not really understanding how the world of online businesses worked he didn’t know much about marketing, or how to set up his businesses but within months he was online and taking new clients. “I did’t really understand how to set up an online business but I made mistakes and learned from them all along the way”. Within a year his online poker teaching website was earning him enough income to work only a few hours a week.
As the desire to help others and coach people to achieve them achieve more from their lives has always been a part of Michael, it was natural that he wanted to share with the world how they too could do as he had dome. So was born Unleash their potential, a guide to help others achieve their own personal goals. Soon after he created a number of online courses to help others achieve success and began marketing his courses through twitter, instagram and through iTunes podcasts. Since the inception of Unleash in June 2015 it has garnered the attention of the iTunes community by being ranked in the top 10 podcasts for.
Michael has been helping people from around the planet achieve their goals their one and one coaching, webinars and his podcasts.
His plan is to continue growing the Unleash brand name to continue helping people achieve their goals. To get in touch with Michael visit his website at
