    in Self Help

    Mike Michalowicz started his first business at the age of 24, moving his young family to the only safe place he could afford – a retirement village. With no experience, no contacts and no savings he systematically bootstrapped a multi-million dollar business. Then he did it again. And again.

    His experience building three multi-million dollar companies fostered a philosophy rarely taught to entrepreneurs: the lack of money, experience and resources is, in fact, your greatesta asset. Because, all these “limitations” bring about the key ingredient to entrepreneurial success: innovation.
