Dinner and stimulating conversation
I spend the day making my mother’s famous spaghetti sauce. Two or three couples arrive at my apartment at 6:00pm for a fantastic Italian dinner, followed by conversation about any topic the group decides to investigate. At midnight the “restaurant” closes, and I send you home with left-overs… assuming there are any.

What People Are Saying
Michael has the knowledge, experience and the Right Message that makes a lasting, positive impression on all who hear him speak. I recommend him wholeheartedly to any group of people who are struggling with the fundamental questions of “Where is America headed,” and “How can we steer her back to a course of integrity and prosperity?” Contact Michael and bring him out to speak with your group — you will be glad you did!
Michael’s educational focus continues to have a longer lasting impact on more people than I’m sure even he realizes. Instead of concentrating on the often-impossible task of ‘convincing’ another to advocate for a particular perspective, or what is the true meaning of important documents, Michael relied on the power of explaining why HE was so convinced.
Michael is a powerful and entertaining teacher. His success is due in part to his immense patience. And it’s also because of his innate ability to paint mental pictures that guide us students to further understand what previously evaded us.
It is because of Michael Badnarik’s extraordinary teaching, that I place such a high value on having a consistent philosophy. I find that in maintaining a consistent philosophy, I can powerfully be true to myself, while bringing balance and even reconciliation, to that which opposes my viewpoint. His emphasis on the worth of having a consistent philosophy does not demand that you agree or align with him on all things, only that your actions are consistent within your own fundamental principles. The vast root system of Michael’s teaching mastery is incomparable, and qualifies him to teach practically anything. He never makes his students feel “dumb”, and has the wisdom and patience to meet them exactly where they are in their learning process. I recommend that anyone desiring to strengthen their life commitments, take the step to clarify and expand their philosophical borders, by studying with Michael Badnarik. No matter how much you think you know, prepare to be challenged!
Most of my life, I have dealt with fear.
Michael … helped me to think through the problem. A great quote in his book that stuck with me was, “By focusing on the consequences of failure instead of the task at hand, we generate a fear of what could happen. That fear typically prevents us from taking action.”
I had been struggling with overthinking and not taking action steps to combat my fearfulness in a tangible way.
I started to think of failure as not something to fear and to embrace it. The more I have taken action, the better I have done. In fact, in July of 2019 a couple of months after talking to Michael, I went zip lining at a mountain resort in the Northeast of America, and it was exhilarating! There was no fear whatsoever! I let him know of this victory, and of my intention to meet fear head on, and continue to focus on success. He celebrated my victory with me. If my mind wanders to fear- I now easily disarm that false narrative with right action.
