About Mychal Connolly
Mychal Connolly was named one of America's Top 100 Urban Entrepreneurs for his body of work as the co-founder of the online baby-gift company http://www.StinkyCakes.com. He was also named one of the Top 40 under 40 in Massachusetts by Business West Magazine. He's been featured in the Boston Herald, Black Enterprise Magazine and INC. Magazine. He has shared his voice on the power of changing lives through entrepreneurship with platforms such as NPR, CBS Radio, affiliate ABC and NBC TV stations. Mr. Connolly currently serves as a board member and spokesperson for Junior Achievement Western Massachusetts.
After neglecting his health while building his brand Stinky Cakes, Connolly became diabetic, with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. This led him to launching a 90 day health & fitness challenge, http://www.90DaysFromRightNow.com, to help people stay in shape, lose weight and build lean muscle, by giving their bodies the nutrition it needs. Connolly says, "I was so busy making a living that I forgot to make a life. I don't want any of my friends and family members to lose sight of what's most important… their health. You can help more people when you're healthy!"
Connolly decided to author not one, but two books to help current and future entrepreneurs navigate their way through the entrepreneurial jungle. When asked how and why he wrote the books, Connolly said, "Sitting in the I.C.U., I realized how precious time is. I felt it could all be gone and so would all the things I've learned and wanted to share with entrepreneurs. So, I felt I just had to get the book done!" His books are titled ‘Launch and Standout’ (designed to help people start and market their businesses) and ‘Going Viral Unlocked’ (designed to help people effectively utilize social media to grow their businesses).
He adheres to that classic entrepreneurial mantra: ‘Give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime.’ This lead him to launch Stinky Cakes University, a way to mentor future entrepreneurs of all ages. Stinky Cakes University is a website designed to efficiently help entrepreneurial minded people go from concept to reality, while giving them tons of marketing tips and tricks. Connolly says, "It's the nine-year-old entrepreneur in me that wanted a mentor that drives me to give back!" Connolly was recently awarded the Junior Achievement "Inspirational Award" for his work as a mentor and spokesperson for Junior Achievement Western Massachusetts.
