Member Journey Stories: In-Depth Looks at What it takes to Succeed
This is the first of what we're calling "Member Journey" stories. We sit down with Mike and have him recount his start and what inspired him to get into business for himself rather than working for someone else. We hope that hearing Mike's inspiration reminds you of your own. Regularly returning to what made you an entrepreneur keeps your head in the right place and makes for a healthier business.
Mike also recounts hardships, professional and personal, that impacted him, how he overcame them, and the success his business experienced on the other side.
He also talks about the what he's doing to stay ahead of the technological curve and all of the awesome things his business is doing with Facebook advertising and Messenger automation.
What's next for The Profit Roadmap?
In upcoming episodes, Cody and Bear sit down with:
- Chris Volpe, training manager and Pareto Principle devotee
- Patrick Hoffman, writer on this blog and digital marketing wonk
- David Martinez, import specialist and company culture revolutionary
