My name is Michael Gebben. There are three words people use to describe me – Positive, Inspirational, ENERGY!
I’m here to help people like you have those lightbulb moments – To realize that ANYTHING is POSSIBLE! It’s just a matter of believing… and taking action or as we like to say at my company jumpstarters M.I.A. (Massive Imperfect Action).
Let me tell you my story.
I’m a small town boy who finished high school but didn’t continue to college. It was a personal decision I made but don’t get me wrong. Education is very, very important. I just believe that learning shouldn’t end in school and in my case, I had big dreams and felt in my heart that I had to give it a try. I was driven to achieve those dreams in any way possible even when some people told me that I would need to have a college degree to become successful.
Regardless of the obstacles and criticisms that came my way, I continued to pursue my dreams. My journey started from a small beginning. I didn’t fly anywhere till I was 22 but as I kept going, I discovered a whole new chapter of my life. I got to travel the world & go to places and hang out with some of the most successful people on the planet.
I’m blessed to enjoy a lifestyle now where I get to spend a few quality hours with a man full of wisdom and insightful thoughts- my grandpa. One of the biggest things he’s taught me is the biggest regret in LIFE you’ll have when you get older is the things you did not do or did not try….
I’ve shot weddings all over the world becoming known for something called the Same Day Edit. I would shoot that day and show the highlight video that night at the reception. My passion in this industry set everything in motion for me.
I started a Youtube channel where I share stories of people (including mine) to inspire and ignite the light inside of you so you can see the HUGE possibilities of making your dreams come true and overcome those thoughts that hold you back.
Everyone has a different journey but what makes it great is the people, places and experience we encounter a long the way. If we go about it equipped with passion, dedication and hard work, we’ll achieve what we once thought impossible and I always say to achieve the impossible you have to see the invisible…
One of those seemingly impossible things I’ve been able to achieve is working for some for some of the most influential people on the planet such author of the 4 Hour Work Week Tim Ferriss, Pat Flynn, Ben Newman, Jayson Gaignard, Derrick Halpern, Sir Richard Branson (been to his private island “Necker Island” 4 times), and Tony Robbins. Below is one of my favorite videos we did for Tony which was for his Date with Destiny event!
To achieve the “impossible” one HUGE piece of advice I can give is to know that “The worst thing that’s going to happen is you get a NO but you get a NO if you don’t ask or don’t try but at least if you ask or try you have the OPPORTUNITY for something good to happen” Never forget that and Never Give Up on your Dreams!!
