You are here because you feel the intense yearning for the betterment of the world around you. You seek to be a source of truth in an increasingly deceived world. You know the capability that is latent within you. You are seeking to better your mind, body and spirit. Here you will find a partner in your quest to build a better you and a better world for yourself, your loved ones, and your community.

Join me and so many others if:

  1. If you want to create the best version of yourself:  Whether you are just beginning or have already embraced a journey of life long learning, pushing your physical boundaries, and edifying yourself and others, you’ll feel right at home here.
  2. If you are constantly curious about the world around you: Need help making heads or tails of the latest political developments? Not sure about where the economy is headed? Searching for biblical truth in a hostile and secular world? Do you just want to get in better shape and feel more confident in your body, or are you looking to shatter personal records and reach new extremes? Not entirely sure why free markets are superior to centrally planned economies? You’ll find concise insight here on contemporary issues built upon timeless principles and virtue regardless the field we are exploring. You’ll be able to follow along and influence my journey for self betterment in all aspects of life while equipping yourself to do the same.
  3. If you are like me:  And by like me I mean you are tired of the division in this country and long to see civility and respect for one another restored. You are tired of the errosion of our freedoms and adamantly advocate for the return to the rule of law and limited government. You are tired of sifting through a world of mindless, negative, soul sucking news and celebrity culture and instead desire to celebrate the noble, the admirable, the praiseworthy and virtuous. You crave real passionate and informed discourse. You want and demand better of yourself and those around you. If that sounds like you, then we are kindred spirits and can partner in building that which we passionately desire to see manifest in our communities, our states and our country.
  4. Finally, a bit about me, your partner on this journey:   My name is Michael Keck. I’m a 36 year old follower of Christ, a son, a brother, a servant, an uncle, and a dad to my German Shepherd, Katie. I’m a business man (I help people buy and sell other businesses at Five Talents Financial Group), competitive powerlifter, runner, Krav Maga practioner (Green belt working on Blue) student of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (1-stripe blue belt).  I serve on the board of directors of the Kentucky Higher Education Assitance Authority and the Kentucky Higher Education Student Loan Corporation. I’m an advisory member for the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky and serve of the foundation’s Finance and Investment Committee (I hold four Securities licenses; the 7, 66, 79, and 82 as well as the CM&AA designation. I also hold a Kentucky Real Estate License).  I serve on the board of Upper Room Ministries, a non profit dedicated to spreading the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ through intercessory prayer and meeting the real physical and emotional needs of people from all walks of life. I graduated from Western Kentucky Unviersity in 2003 with a B.S. in General Management and from the University of London (England) in 2015 with a Master of Science in Finance and Economic Policy. I ran for the Kentucky State Senate in 2016 and earned 23% of the vote in a four way primary. Though I did not win that election my heart is to serve our Commonwealth and our Country in a manner that honors the call the Lord put on my heart, to be a messenger of true unity in Christ and our humanity while putting forth real practical reforms that enable the sovereign individual and our collective to flourish. IMG_6573 2-13
