• From Mike:

    "Let's start with my fancy schmancy resume: I have been blessed with over half a million readers of my books. I have keynoted at the world's biggest business events. I have built four multi-million-dollar companies and sold two of them: one to private equity and another to a Fortune 500. Nice stuff for a resume (and I am truly grateful), but those are just peak moments from decades of entrepreneurial struggles.

    During that time, I repeatedly fell victim to my own arrogance and ignorance. In addition to those successes, I have also: lost my house once, lost my entire fortune twice, launched ten failed businesses, and experienced years of depression. For nearly two decades I have lived a life of "entrepreneurial poverty" – where I was broke financially, emotionally and physically.

    I became a business author with a clear mission: Eradicate entrepreneurial poverty. I have devoted my life to fixing those struggles for you, for myself, and for every entrepreneur I have the privilege to connect with. Successful entrepreneurship is not easy, but it can be a whole lot simpler. That is what I am here to do with you, right now."

    The Pumpkin Plan is a powerful concept to creation an immersive experience not just for your clients, but also for vendors in your field!


    Mike will open with a keynote to introduce the concept first & then deep-dive with a small group into how to apply The Pumpkin Plan in his workshop!

    There is a big lesson to be learned from farmers. Not the everyday guys, but those county fair geeks who grow one-ton pumpkins. They hold the secret to explosive growth, and Mike will show you how their focused growth strategy applies directly to your business-branding, niching and cutting off useless growth. It’s your turn to grow an award winning, explosive company!


    Understand how to:

    • Identify and leverage your biggest natural strengths
    • Sow your seeds and sell, sell, sell!
    • Fire your small time, rotten clients
    • Weed out distractions (often mislabeled as “opportunities”
    • Nurture, protect and replicate your top clients
