Michael R. Holley was born in Panama City, Florida, on December 26, 1960.He is starting from solid, yet humble beginnings. The son, grandson, and nephew of boat captains, from laborer to captain, his dream job, at the age of 19, staying family business was not his destiny. An advertisement for a car salesman changes his life forever. Working from sales representative to Chevrolet dealer to owning his empire, having it all crumble and land him in prison. Not allowing this to define his life, he thanks God for the lessons learned, the many guardian angels along the way.  Michael’s life has new meaning as he helps others openly and humbly sharing the good and the bad of his journey. Currently, consulting and speaking to business owners and groups about all aspects of business and personal life.  Michael has developed a specialty in how to recruit, hire, train and retain Gen Y/Millennials by developing a new culture. Speaking openly about the building and dismantling an empire. His speeches, jam-packed with stories of success, failure, writing and yes prison. His prison stories and his unique ability to speak of tragedy and make you laugh are always the most popular. If allowed or booked for enough time he loves Q and A sessions on the floor or at other events and venues when allowed, he finishes every speech with “Be careful what you ask, I am going to answer it!” Speaking to civic organizations, conventions, associations, congregations, CEO retreats and business groups of all types, helping others see business and life through a new perspective. Michael is working on numerous publishing projects based on his life lessons and the universal principles of life.  He is the author of the books "Pinstripe Suites to Prison Blues" and "Finding the Wisdom You Seek" with “The Young Man and the Sea” publishing the summer of 2019.
