Giving Back

At the core of Byrnes Consulting’s purpose is one simple principle...helping others.

While the business has a focus on financial advisors, financial advisory firms and the financial services industry, there are billions of people in the world that are much less fortunate. That is why Byrnes Consulting dedicates time to help those in need. In sharing expertise, volunteering and making financial contributions of 5% or more of net profits, the hope is that this small difference will make the world a better place.

Want “helping those in need” to be part of the core values of your business? Contact Byrnes Consulting for a free consultation so you can make a difference too.

Here are examples of how Byrnes Consulting is giving back.

Here are examples of how Byrnes Consulting is giving back.

Volunteer consultant and speaker

Mike has helped hundreds of charities in New England, through speaking and consulting, as part of Empower Success Corps. It is an organization that pulls together over one hundred volunteer consultants, having many different types of expertise, to “empower” nonprofits to have a better impact in their communities. His top areas of focus are strategic planning, fundraising and marketing.

Mike also helps give ESC advice, provides training to other fellow consultants, and was a recipient of the 2013 Edmund V. Marshall Outstanding Project of the Year Award and the “Above and Beyond Award” for both 2010 and 2011.

Watch a video of Mike explaining how he got started with ESC and why he loves doing it.

Missionary and volunteer

Mike was blessed to go on a mission to Haiti. There he saw the severe issues the country faces because of corruption, crime and poverty. However, through Haiti180 and St. Joseph Parish, he saw firsthand numerous good deeds that create hope for the Haitians. The group has created an orphanage, a school, a chapel, a church, elderly housing and a 4-story healthcare facility.

Back at home, Mike volunteers with the church ‘yard sale’ to raise thousands of dollars for the organization’s humanitarian efforts.

Overnight chaperone and parishioner

When Mike found out about the homeless population that suffers through the cold New England winters, he signed up to help serve as a chaperone in St. Mary’s shelter, staying overnight with those with no warm place to call home. Sadly, he discovered through conversations with many of the guests that they have had some form of abuse and/or addiction that severely derailed their lives.

To help in a bigger way, Mike joined the board for the Plymouth Taskforce to End Homelessness, serving people from Carver, Kingston and Plymouth.

Mike also volunteers to help with the St. Vincent de Paul Society food pantry. In addition to Sundays, with his kids, Mike regularly attends daily mass each week and supports the Saints Mary & Joseph Collaborative.

Coach and board member

As a former NCAA Division II baseball player, Mike gives back by coaching his kids’ baseball and softball teams. He serves on the Kingston Youth Baseball and Softball League (KYBSL) board of directors.

He helps as a league coordinator and created the first-ever summer baseball clinic, a week-long camp for 2nd to 7th graders that includes a ‘Red Sox night out’ at Fenway Park for 100 people.

Knight

Following in his Grandpa Joe’s footsteps, Mike is a third-degree member of the Knights of Columbus and an officer of St. Joseph’s Council #4480. In addition to attending monthly meetings, he volunteers in programs to support those in need in the area and produces the Anchor, the monthly newsletter.

Frequent Blood Donor

For decades, Mike has donated blood multiple times a year to help the American Red Cross and its efforts to save the lives of those in hospitals all across the country.

Friend

Mike tries to find ways to commit random acts of kindness for friends, neighbors, industry contacts and strangers. Sometimes a check-in call, a kind smile or a warm hug is all someone needs to turn his or her day around.

Mike’s favorite quote:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
