EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. Dec. 22, 2016 – Mike Agugliaro, founder of CEO Warrior, has been named Contractor of the Year by Contractor Magazine. Agugliaro is also co-owner of New Jersey-based Gold Medal Service, one of the top home service businesses in the nation.

Each year Contractor Magazine searches out a contractor who is “doing something so well that it’s worth emulating,” according to the magazine’s award criteria.

CEO Warrior is creating a national movement in the home services industry. Agugliaro is helping tradesman grow their businesses and have more free time to be “warriors,” at work and at home.

“I’m pleased and humbled to have been chosen Contractor of the Year by such a prestigious publication,” said Agugliaro. “Most of all, though, I’m pleased at the impact I’m seeing in the attendees at each of our workshops and events. One by one, these men and women are turning into warriors. It’s a great thing to see.”

CEO Warrior is a business coaching and mentoring business that uses proven training and marketing methods that have worked for Gold Medal Service to help other business owners across the nation. After discovering that most business failures are due to the CEO, Mike teaches his warriors how to change their mindset.

He has published four books and has been featured nationally including interviews with CNBC, MSNBC, Financial Times, and CEO World Magazine.

“I took a struggling two-person business and turned it into an over $28 million dollar a year business,” said Agugliaro. “The path to success for me was not easy or quick. It took 10 years of trial and error with different methods. It is my mission to help service business owners forge their own path to success in both their professional and business lives.”

In August 2016, Mike was featured on CNBC’s Nightly Business Report discussing his inspiring story and the more than 125 national and international business leaders he has coached over the last three years. The segment can be seen here:
