NOT a two time Olympic Champion and
NEVER appeared on Broadway.
Mike grew up broke in the Phoenix ghetto raised by a single mom who worked hard at a string of crappy jobs to provide. Dependent on welfare, they couldn’t even afford a car. Keep in mind a typical summer day in Phoenix is over 110 degrees which is a bundle of fun when walking to and waiting for the bus, walking, biking and sitting around being broke.
When Mike graduated from high school, he wanted to go to college but, did we mention that whole broke thing?
With no college degree, he got the best “real adult job” he thought he could get, slinging steel (that’s us trying to make “used car sales” sound cool.) Not real bright, but semi good looking, he figured out how to sneak into the top 25% of sales people his first year.
Even though the money was good (for a kid who grew up POOR), Mike could see the writing on the wall.
It wasn’t a good long term opportunity. The “old guys” he worked with told him how much they regretted never going out and learning “a real skill”…
Being “stuck” selling cars the rest of their lives…
The people “in charge” weren’t bright. He wasn’t going to get a promotion anytime soon. Even if he did, it looked a lot like hard work and decent pay…
But not wealth building pay.
The Price Of
So, he did what any newly married, temporarily insane entrepreneur to be, would do…
Saved every cent he could for a couple of years, gave every penny of it to someone else (along with more debt than he could wrap his young mind around) and rolled the dice on a Servicemaster Commercial Cleaning Franchise.
Back fresh from 2 weeks of training at the headquarters in Memphis, TN, he was ready to take on the world…
Until he opened the front door and saw… It.
A yellow sticky note. Four words. “We quit- The Employees”
It was do or die time.
Cue the sad music montage of Mike interviewing people during the day & cleaning toilets at night. Slowly pulling it together, hiring his first team and making his first business sale!
A quarter million… American. Real money back in the day!
Like the hopeless addict he was, he took that sexy pile of cash and bought another business. Genius that he was, he worked himself right out of a marriage. Idiot.
Long story sad, the judge awarded a large big, fat, hairy settlement to his ex. So big, so fat and so hairy, Mike had no choice but to declare bankruptcy. Out loud. For real. Do not recommend.
Everything was gone. No marriage. No money. Years of hard work wiped out.
Before you start openly weeping- things got better! Unable to work like a dog, deal with a divorce, and maintain sanity, Mike was forced to discover systems. Working smarter, not harder and without the whole “alienating the people I love” bit.
Fast forward a couple years of “Mike learning the hard way”, he built and sold a couple multi million-dollar businesses, for seven figures each.
Finally! All the financial freedom he could want! But… still addicted to entrepreneuring (possibly not a word…), and too crappy at golf to retire, Mike decided to save the cleaning world from making the millions of dollars and decades of mistakes he made.
