Meet Mitch Russo who, at the age of 16, was the lead guitar player for his high school rock band.
Besides being the best way ever to meet girls, it taught him how to build, run, and promote a business. His band; Absolutely Free, was the highest-paid high school rock band in his school district, making over $500 a night, and that was in 1970.
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 for Inc. Magazine’s “Entrepreneur of the Year” on two separate occasions, 1989 and 1991.
Mitch joined Chet Holmes and Tony Robbins and together created Business Breakthroughs, Int'l, a company serving thousands of businesses a year with coaching, consulting, and training services, generating over $25M a year in revenue. Mitch was the President and CEO.
Mitch left Business Breakthroughs in 2012 to help others build their business as a coach & consultant specializing in "Revenue Dislocation" and Building Power Tribes Certification Programs.
In 2015, Mitch published “The Invisible Organization” which is the CEO’s guide to transitioning a traditional brick and mortar company into a fully virtual organization.
In 2018, Mitch published his second book: Power Tribes – How Certification Can Explode Your Business.
