Meet The Founder

Michael Matarazzo, CTACC, CEC

I've been working as a Professional Chef for nearly 25 years.  I'm no stranger to the stresses of the hospitality industry and how the culture and programmed mindset can create serious challenges for people.

I've had issues with depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, and addiction.  I reached rock bottom with my physical health and had a mental breakdown in 2018 after ignoring obvious signs that I needed to slow down and take a break.

That same year, after months of reflection, I figured out what self-awareness was for the first time.  Ultimately, that breakdown was one of the best things to ever happened to me.

I am now a Transformation Life Coach and started Be Better to help change the narrative of the hospitality industry and teach others the importance of good mental health, self-care, and self-awareness.

And this is just the beginning.
