After he met his wife in the U.S. Marine Corps... he went online to search for success as it was during the dot com boom. He tried more systems and programs than he would even like to admit to, but finally found a partner and they formed a partnership and became resellers for WebEx, an enterprise level online meeting service (before online meetings were so common!) They spent years generating sales from Fortune 500 companies and created a six-figure income but were still working 80 hours a week with no time freedom.
Then one day he got a call that WebEx was being sold to a Fortune 500 company and they were letting go of all the resellers. He lost a mid six-figure income over night, so he quickly jumped back online to search for success again.
Having been in corporate sales for years, he wanted something he could do from home and get paid what he was truly worth, as he knew entrepreneurship was the only way that would happen. He had already spent years of trial and error at the school of hard knocks and knew he could do it from home and leverage his time using the Internet. He always had the desire, drive and determination but many of the opportunities were just not what he was looking for so he decided to start his own company.
Michael's inner passion and drive come from helping others truly empower themselves and realize their real potential, and in turn be that "light" for others around them. It's his "Why." It lights his fire. He rarely ever misses a live event, training or business invite and has spent his days building relationships, coaching, training and supporting the community. It has rewarded him beyond his dreams.
Michael resides in California with his wife and two young daughters. They love to travel and spend summers in France.
