RISE - The Reincarnation of an Entrepreneur
RISE isn’t your typical book about succeeding in business. Instead, it’s proof that failure doesn’t equal defeat. In it, Michael, with gut-wrenching honesty, details the entrapments of his early successes, his fall, his mistakes, and his rise from the ashes of failure. He describes how he’s found a way to break through the narratives in his own mind—the head trash, as he calls it—to reach not only ultimate success but ultimate joy in life.
When the housing market crashed in 2009, Michael lost everything. Due to a combination of declining sales, betrayals from key staff, and personal shortcomings, Michael went from owning two multi-million dollar businesses to almost destroying his marriage, losing his home and companies, and struggling to make ends meet. But he didn’t let failure keep him down. Instead, he learned from his mistakes and rose back to success.
Michael's journey inspired him to help others avoid the mistakes he made by teaching them a simple and holistic system to bring discipline, accountability, and balance into their work and personal lives. In Rise, Michael recounts his remarkable story with brutal honesty and self-reflection. He demonstrates how systemizing a business and building healthy, open, and honest leadership teams can help business leaders free themselves from the control their business has over them and find time to pursue other passions.
Part refreshingly honest memoir and part guide for entrepreneurs, RISE will show you how to get out of your own way and live your ideal life.
