“Mike Campion – the man, the myth, the terrible dinner guest.”
Self-proclaimed genius and glorified janitor, Mike came from humble beginnings raised by a single mom in the sunny ghetto of Phoenix Arizona. Armed with no education and a whole lot of hope, Mike moved to Grand Junction, CO at age 22 and used his life savings to buy, beg borrow his way into his first business- a Service Master franchise. Mike was greeted on his first day with a yellow sticky that read “We Quit- The Employees”.
Too dumb to give up, Mike persevered and tripled that business and within 3 years sold it for 3x what he paid, moved back to Arizona and used the proceeds to buy his next business.
Following a kick in the groin style divorce, Mike started over with a new outlook of being real and a company called Killer Shade, which exploded and was sold for a 7 figure payday.
Still not that bright, Mike started a car dealership which grew to over $4M in revenue year one. Realizing how much work the car business is, Mike sold the dealership In 2014 for another 7 figure deal and turned his focus to helping other small business owners become not so small business owners.
