"Michael's a beautiful, thoughtful, and caring coach who skillfully weaves mindfulness awareness practices into his coaching. His clients grow with a grounded sense of self and a deeper awareness of their place in the world." - Jerry Colonna, CEO,

"The relationship exceeded my expectations. It did not take us very long to develop a common vocabulary that we used to talk about my behavior and the behavior of others, and his technique of asking questions to catalyze the learning process worked very well. He gave me a different lens through which to view how I act and how others act and the tools to begin to understand why that behavior is occurring. I really appreciate his insight and am grateful for the opportunity to work with him." - B.A., VP & Assistant General Counsel

"Working with Michael Rich as a coach and mentor has dramatically impacted my personal and professional growth over the past year and a half. He has an incredibly holistic way of approaching mindfulness and meditation that allows you to apply learned practices to real-time situations. I'm so grateful for the impact he has had on my life!" - Sonya Hausafus, VP of Marketing, Techstars
