Working with Mike Hamel over the last few years, professionally and now as a mentor/life coach, for me has been a game changer. Mike is extremely personable, encouraging, and insightful on his life experiences which can easily be applied to someone like myself who is actively trying to grow themselves both professionally and in personal life.
Being a young professional, I seek guidance from other professionals that I look up to and that have reached a certain level of success that I strive for. In just a couple of sessions Mike has given me a few tools that I have applied to my day-to-day that have increased my chances to reach my goals. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals brings value and this what Mike can do for you.

My impression when I worked with Mike in the construction industry years ago was a lasting one. I was struck at how he treated everyone the same and conducting himself always in an energetic professional manner. I knew that was the type of businessperson/owner I wanted to strive to be. I never thought almost ten years later I would have the opportunity to learn directly from Mike. The best part of learning from Mike is knowing his guidance comes from years of experience. Mike not ashamed to share a past mistake. He revels in explaining his mistakes, so you do not make the same. At Miss Steel LLC, Mike has helped to coach in all aspects of the business and personal growth for myself and my business partner. A few of the items Mike has been able to help with our financial, operational, organizational, communication to name a few.
As a business owner, I know just how valuable time is. Mike Hamel has been such an asset to my business. He reached out on LinkedIn offering to mentor new businesses. My partner quickly followed up with him and asked if he could participate. Mike committed his time every other week for months having phone calls and in person meetings with my partner and I on all aspects of business ownership, i.e., financial information, financings, insurance, forecasting, and budgeting to name a few. If you do not know Mike personally, the first impression he makes is his enthusiasm and passion for whatever he is doing. He is always professional and courtesy and truly cares about others. He is always willing to help and taking the time to explain his own personal experiences, both positive and negative in a practical way so you can understand a concept or avoid a pitfall. Our business is greater for the wealth of knowledge and experience Mike’s mentoring has brought to our company.
Working with Mike has been a wonderful experience! Mike’s energy and passion for helping others is second to none. He has helped me get specific about my goals and develop a game plan to achieve them. It is obvious that Mike has the knowledge, experience, resources, and drive to be a great leader and a great coach. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for mentorship and coaching.
