Who is this guy?
Michael O. "Coop" Cooper

Welcome! And thanks for stopping by! I started BetterMe to help business owners increase their revenue, decrease their expenses, reduce costly mistakes that plague most small businesses and to improve their image with customers so they can attract all the business they can handle.

I coach business owners to put themselves first by designing a business that makes them happy, sustains the business and brings in customers who really want to do business with them. As a coach, I encourage business owners to face their fears, take bold steps to reach their dreams, develop clarity around what they really want, simplify their lives, or work in specific areas to improve upon their current situation. For more information, please see the Coaching FAQ.

My coaching style is very direct, supportive, fun and, some say, radical. Check out the client testimonials and eZine to get a glimpse of how I work with clients. Also, please read How Coaching Calls Work. I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee - if you aren't satisfied with our work together, you get your full fee back for that month!

Experience: I spent several years as a management/IT consultant and strategist with Cambridge Technology Partners (now a division of Novell, Inc.), and have worked with organizations such as Vodafone, iGo.com, American Honda Motors Company, Responsys, Seagate and others to build complex software applications. In addition, I've owned successful businesses and consulted with friends to improve upon theirs.

I've worked on four continents, side-by-side with CEOs, Presidents, Chief Marketing Officers and department heads of some of the world's largest corporations; with ten years experience crafting company visions, strategies, product launches, marketing plans, business processes and company turnarounds. My experience in management and strategic development with a large consulting firm has afforded me access to some of the brightest minds and most successful people in business today.

I am a graduate of Coach University, the leading coach training program in the world; a founding member of the Graduate School of Coaching; a founding member of CoachVille, the world's largest network of coaches and continuing education organization; a member of the International Coach Federation (one of the bodies that certifies coaches); the founding development director and past president for the International Association of Certified Coaches; member of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and a partner in Paragon Strategies, a high-growth management and sales training company.

I earned a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Information Systems from the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University and a Bachelor of Arts in History, Technology Education and Communications Studies from Virginia Tech.

Location: I currently live in beautiful San Francisco, California, and enjoy taking advantage of the Bay Area - including camping, hiking, snowboarding, skydiving, wine country excursions and spending time with friends. But coaching is done over the phone, so I work with people all over the world to help them build the lives and businesses of their dreams.

Goal: My goal is to help business owners create the lives and businesses they've always dreamed of. And I'm also doing that for myself! To see how I've used coaching to improve my financial situation, start this busines, simplify and balance my life and numerous other advances, see Walk The Talk.

If you're ready to increase your revenues, decrease your expense, reduce costly mistakes and/or improve your image with customers to attract all of the business you can handle, then contact me to schedule a collaborative interview today!
