Boardroom or basement start-up…
Mike Leonard has been there!
Mike Leonard understands the Real needs of your business… because he has been there!
He managed corporate subsidiaries with hundreds of employees and multi-million dollar budgets… and he worked alone in his basement. He’s sold businesses, real estate, software… and he’s sold books, sandwiches, and cooking gear.
He consulted to some of the largest and most famous (and infamous) companies in America… he raised millions in venture capital for start-ups… and he started six businesses of his own. Over the years, most of his businesses have succeeded and a couple have failed…
As a Principal with an internationally respected Washington consulting firm, he managed multi-million dollar projects for clients like Freddie Mac, Exxon, Beatrice Foods, General Mills, and The City of New York.
As President of his own firm, he extended his customer base to such diverse clients as The Kennedy Center, Samsonite Corp., and construction giant Pulte Home Corp.
In addition, he personally owned and operated a variety of small businesses…a computer software company, a multi-office real estate brokerage firm, a business development consulting practice, and a sales training company.
He has written, lectured, trained, and coached entrepreneurs and small business operators as well as corporate executives…including a 12 month engagement providing sales and marketing consulting and training to 20 start-up firms at the Boulder (CO.) High Technology Incubator. In addition, he trained and counseled over 6,000 real estate brokers and students.
