Guest Bio

Mike Young is a 44-year-old seasoned entrepreneur and is known as “The Makeover Master”, he works with successful entrepreneurs to launch or re-brand their online presence through his unique process, “The Makeover Experience.” Katie is a loving wife and mother to our two kids Jeff 11 and Lucy 9…She’s 41 years old and has been the backbone of our success. Over the past decade she’s done what it takes to support my entrepreneurial journey. Everything from bartender, stay at home mom to work in the baseball industry. She’s an amazingly strong woman who has had to battle anxiety, family suicides as well as our two periods of 15 month stretches with no income. I can honestly say there is no way we would be where we are today without her strength…
