Certificates and degrees have an aura of authenticity; you’d find yourself trusting someone with sought-after professional degrees much more easily than those without them. Self-made financial coach Michael Hofmann understands this very well. His financial advice is rooted in trust and empathy, where he feels and can relate to the problems of his clients at a personal, more human level.
Mike was born in a small town in Iowa that lacked even basic infrastructure like a grocery store. He had to travel 42 miles every single day to get to school. He didn’t inherit a fortune that’d give him an impressive aura; Mike had to do it all alone, by himself. He was motivated and focused; he knew what he wanted in life and started his journey toward it early on.
Starting his passive income journey while he was making only $12000 annually, Mike has reached a place where he boasts $300,000 in passive income without a single economic, business, or financial degree.
Having hustled with little means and knowing the problems that a layman faces in the journey to financial freedom and stability, Mike connects with his clients via his company, Passivepreneurs, on the basis of trust and empathy. The company is dedicated to helping individuals all over the world setup multiple successful passive income streams.
A consultation with Mike is not a mechanical one where you won’t be allowed to drift away from the robotic financial talk; he feels his clients’ problems and advises them to approach life from a holistic standpoint, which is emotionally and physically fulfilling.
Mike frequently talks about health, fitness, and performance optimization by means of eradicating mental blocks, fears and impacts of past traumas, validating his clients’ concerns and approaching their lives with an empathetic and genuine demeanor. His approach helps weave trust in the relationship between him and his clients, leaving a profound impact on their lives.
Empathy and genuine concern exude trust, just as degrees and certificates bring authenticity. Having made it to the top without having those fancy degrees that intimidate many, Mike helps his clients take the leap of faith of trusting him by being an understanding and concerned coach and not just a mechanical robot talking about money.
