The enthusiasm for starting up small businesses is at an all time high, given the value of the internet and social media platforms. That said, most people fail to make anything out of it.
However, the opportunity and resources are out there, and we are definitely in the era of small agile and more relatable businesses taking share of the market.
One person who has and is capitalising incredibly well from the opportunity is Mike Matthews.
Mike Matthews is a self-made fitness and publishing entrepreneur, whose 5 year old businesses turnover 8 figures annually whilst still having so much market opportunity ahead of him to capture. A best selling Author, Podcast Host, Supplement Company Owner, Long-Form self-Publisher, App Producer and Online Coach Leader.
Most importantly, Mike is the real deal, is down to earth, really cares about helping and is a no BS type of guy. Mike has sold over 1M books, has over 2.5M hits on his web properties a month, and has a high-quality supplement line that is turning over 8-figures by itself.
