Mike Agugliaro has proved the world wrong, and continues to prove the world wrong every day.
Mike’s story starts like the stories of many people—with struggles in his family and in school. In his teen years, he lived on his own and faced one hardship after another. When pushed to the breaking point, and with more questions than answers, young Mike shifted his mindset: even when others would have given up, he decided to prove the world wrong and create a new story for himself.
That one mindset shift sparked a life of transformation and mastery: Mike started on his journey of martial arts when he was 15 years old, and devoted himself to mastery for over 3 decades that led him to creating his own martial arts system in 2009 called Jinsei Ryu Budo.
Mike applied the same mindset shift in his career: as an electrician, he started his own electrical company in 1994. The first years were challenging but little did he know what it would turn into. He kept pushing, he kept proving the world wrong, and he kept leveling up his mindset until success clicked. In just 10 short years, his once-struggling electrical company grew into a $32 million/year home services empire that was acquired by a private equity firm in 2017.
His mindset leveled up again as his focus shifted to serving the home service industry. He built CEO Warrior, the largest training and coaching organization in the world for home service businesses. He grew that company into an industry-transforming success story that helps thousands of service companies collectively generate more than half a billion dollars in additional revenue. Globally, CEO Warrior serves clients in 6 countries. In 2020, at the height of the COVID pandemic (and even when others said it couldn’t be done) he proved the world wrong yet again and brought aboard a large private equity firm to help grow the organization to another level. Now as a board member, Mike is continuing to guide CEO Warrior into a global empire.
Today, Mike runs a business investment firm that invests in high-performing entrepreneurs that want to grow to an exit. He also runs FuDog Group, a peak performance training company that helps people enhance their personal lives, and he’s on a mission to impact 1,000,000 people in 100 countries in 10 years or less.
Mike and his beautiful wife, Jennifer, live at the Jersey Shore. When Mike is not helping others, or spending time at the beach with his wife looking for sea glass, he is practicing martial arts in his dojo. Mike is the author of more than 17 books, and a sought-after speaker who has shared the stage with inspirational experts like Brian Tracy, Larry Winget, Jay Abraham, Mike Michalowicz, Lou Ferrigno, and so many others.
Years ago, most people would have looked at young Mike’s life and assumed that his story would end like so many others. But Mike shifted his mindset to a new level, pushed himself beyond what others thought was possible, wrote a new story of transformation and mastery… and today Mike continues to prove the world wrong and help others write a new story for themselves.
