Mike Agugliaro, Business Warrior
OWNER CEO WARRIOR
Mike Agugliaro has been taking action since becoming a martial arts aficionado in his teens, learning and fine-tuning the discipline and mental focus he needed to excel in a very mentally and physically challenging sport. Today, he continues to perfect his skills while teaching karate, weaponry, jujitsu, and meditation, coaching people to develop their minds, bodies and spirits. This training has helped him remain disciplined in his life as well as in his business ventures.
For more than two decades, as the former co-owner of New Jersey’s largest and respected home services company, Mike played a key role in building its success. For example, in just 10 years, Mike’s business-growing acumen took the company from a business making less than $1 million a year, to making $32 million a year.
Through his varied experiences, he’s been successful mentoring and creating profitable business models and actionable processes for other businesses, both small and large. His goal is to dig deep and find a company’s sweet spot – through his management, operations, sales, marketing, goal-setting, communication, and personal coaching skills.
He can teach you how to market your business to obtain substantial results, how to take the lead, build a great team and how to stay motivated and focused. Mike has been mentoring and creating business success stories for others for years, and now with CEO Warrior, Mike will provide coaching and mentoring to you and your business, taking you to the next level and beyond.
