Today we are joined by my friend and returning guest, Mitch Russo..
Mitch started his public life as the lead guitarist of a rock band called Absolutely Free. Since then, Mitch has been quite productive.
First he built a real estate portfolio in Massachusetts and used the working capital for his next venture.
In 1985, Mitch co-founded Timeslips Corp, which grew to become the largest time tracking Software Company in the world. In 1994, Timeslips Corp was sold to Sage, plc. While at Sage, Mitch went on to run all of Sage U.S. as Chief Operating Officer, a division with 300 people with a market cap in excess of $100M.
Mitch was nominated Inc. Magazine’s “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 1989 and 1991 and Won “Best Entrepreneur” in 1989, by The National Association of Legal Vendors.
Mitch joined long time friend Chet Holmes as President, later to join forces with Tony Robbins and together created Business Breakthroughs, Int'l, a company serving thousands of businesses a year with coaching, consulting and training services.
Mitch was the President and CEO of Business Breakthroughs..
After the early and unfortunate death of Chet, Mitch left Business Breakthroughs to help others build their business as a consultant specializing in building certified consulting and coaching organizations, working with call centers with large volume lead flow… helping coaching organizations scale.
In 2015, Mitch published “The Invisible Organization” the CEO’s guide to building fully virtual organizations.
Now Mitch is building certification & licensing programs companies use to generate insane profits while exploding their sales.
An avid travel and landscape photographer, Mitch’s work won 1st prize with The Sierra Club in 1994 and more recently was published in JETGALA Magazine with a 2-page spread. Mitch is always checking for a full moon in Iceland and has been known to disappear in a moment’s notice.
