I was born on October 26th, 1967 and raised on Long Island, New York But moved to San Diego, CA in mid 2013
I like to travel, golf, play racquetball, and Foosball, Call of Duty (xBox One)
I am also a cat lover and I have 3 cats. Kenny (KittyDotCom), Bloggy, and Scavy (because she is a scavenger.)
My first job was at Pathmark, a local Supermarket, where I worked in the frozen foods department at the same time I attended New York Institute of Technology.
In 1990 I changed careers and started a new profession in the automotive business. Over the next 14 years I would managed some of the largest auto dealers in the USA. I handled many of the advertising for my dealership. And, in the past, I was the head sales trainer for a 13 store auto group. I have taken many courses on sales, negotiating, and phone selling skills.
I loved working in the car business and it was tough to leave when things started to take off online. But I don’t miss the long hours. However, I do feel I learned a lot about influence factors that make people take action during my years in top dealerships.
I have been able to apply many of the sales and marketing tactics I learned over the last 14 years and implement them into my Internet marketing. My online success has come very quickly.
On this day on 2004, it was time for me to leave that automobile sales profession behind and seek out new opportunities that lie ahead with the new frontier of Online Marketing. This was the day I decided to quit the car business and work for my self fulltime. It was a good choice. I became a Millionaire in just 3 years in early 2006.
I started Internet marketing in October of 2002. My first purchase was a product called Instant Internet Empires, which taught me how to get started and was really good for the newbie. But, I had to learn many of the other techniques on my own. I am a student of How-To and self improvement books. I am always looking for that edge to take myself and my projects to the next level. So, I encourage you to be brave enough to purchase quality products that you come across that will enhance your life.
In January of 2006 we did our first Million Dollar product launch. Since then, the business has grown from a spare bedroom to 2500 square foot office and a staff of 21 people that help me run our 10+ Major-Brand sites.
To me, the most important thing now is quality of life. A nice income makes it easier to have, but if you leave no time to enjoy it, you could be worse off than when you started. At one time we were doing close to $10 Million per year with 75 employees. It was not fun. As always, the 80/20 rule (the Pareto Principle) applied and we decided to focus only on the 20 percent of our products that resulted in 80% of our profits. Life is a bit more simple
In Mid 2013 Mike Filsaime and top Internet marketer Andy Jenkins merged companies and assets to create Marketing Genesis. With new products like Video Genesis, Genesis Labs, Webinar Genesis, and Traffic Genesis.
As well Marketing Genesis has a software partnership with Hector Yague where we have products.EvergreenBusinessSystem.com launched a new marketplace called DealGuardian.comas well as WebinarJamand a new product called EverWebinar Coming soon.
In our first year Marketing Genesis became an 8 figure company grossing over 10 Million in sales.
