It’s short and simple, and the power of the content is kind of a miracle considering how concise it is.
Dewey Beach, DE (Vocus/PRWEB) April 13, 2011
Entrepreneur Mike Mann is out to prove that just about anyone who is motivated can start a successful business, even in today’s troubled economy.
After founding the corporations BuyDomains.com, Grassroots.org, Phone.com, SEO.com, DomainMarket.com, BrowserMedia, Yield Software and others, Mann is now focused on using those strategies to help others get rich.
He said his book, “Make Millions & Make Change! Secrets to Business and Personal Success,” shows people a pathway to financial independence.
“Nobody ever said anything was easy, but it’s possible,” Mann said in a telephone interview. “It’s about self confidence. It’s about marketing. It’s about branding.”
At 161 pages, “Make Millions & Make Change!” is an easy read.
“It’s short and simple, and the power of the content is kind of a miracle considering how concise it is,” Mann explains
Budding entrepreneurs say Mann is a mentor. Jim Sickorez lives near Boston. He said he didn’t know a terabyte from a trilobite when he met Mann two years ago. Mann gave Sickorez a copy of his book.
“I have read it multiple times,” Sickorez said in a telephone interview.
When he began reading “Make Millions & Make Change,” Sickorez said his business was a fledgling. His company provides financial counseling to families planning for college.
“I said, I really want to bring my business to scale,” Sickorez said.
After meeting Mann, Sickorez said he now owns about 40 Internet domain names. They include VisitCapeCod.us, VisitNantucket.us and VisitMarthasVineyard.us.
“We’re getting such traffic to the sites. It’s crazy. I would have never done any of this,” Sickorez said. “You learn from the best.”
Sickorez said his approach to business shifted after he read “Make Millions & Make Change.”
“[Mann] reinforced a lot of things in his book that you kind of take for granted as a small business owner,” he said.
Mann explains complex topics like business plans, human resources and search engine optimization while simply stressing the importance of hard work.
“He says the way that you beat the competitors is if you spend an extra hour a day. If you put in an hour, if not two, a day, your competition will not challenge you because they’re not doing this,” Sickorez said. “Don’t give up. Keep making the phone calls.”
Mann, who made a fortune developing businesses online and off, is best known for his innovative charitable work like Grassroots.org and Make Change! Trust, which he discusses in “Make Millions & Make Change.”
Sickorez said reading Mann’s book inspired him to help raise money for the Boys & Girls Club in Massachusetts.
“You’ve got to do it for the right reasons,” Sickorez said.
Ira Zoot, owner of TicketStub.com, said some of the principals discussed in Mann’s book are what helped make him a successful Internet entrepreneur.
“[Mann’s] been a major player in the industry for years,” Zoot said in a telephone interview. “And he still is.”
He said Mann’s ideas are well respected in the Internet industry.
“If you look at Facebook, search him on Google, or look on [Internet industry] blogs, people know who Mike is,” Zoot said. “He is kind of a colorful guy.”
