12 Unconventional Lessons for Becoming an Unstoppable Entrepreneur

Mike Fata

Align people with profits and watch your business thrive

Sustainable companies are the ones that turn a profit. But in an ever-evolving world, gearing yourself up for entrepreneurial success means looking beyond the ledger. Because a business isn’t built by financial statements, it’s built by the person in the mirror, for the betterment of society.

In Grow: 12 Unconventional Lessons for Becoming an Unstoppable Entrepreneur, Mike Fata details his journey from high-school dropout to successful CEO and how his achievements (and failures), led him to create a guide that will put entrepreneurs on a pathway to success. Spoiler alert: it isn’t a fancy business degree, a high-flying network, or tons of investment capital.

By stressing the importance of passion, integrity, and community, these twelve easy-to-follow lessons will highlight how to grow intentionally and build a business that is both authentic to you and relevant to the current landscape. A landscape that values not only the health and well-being of the bank balance, but also of people and the environment.

It may seem scary to stray from the conventional business-model, but Fata knows that it is possible to build a sustainable, health-giving business that is also financially viable—because he has done it. And he wants to help you do the same. There is a successful entrepreneur inside everyone. The question is, are you ready to discover yours?

Inspiring personal and professional growth, Mike Fata co-founded Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods in 1998, and since that time has become a leader in natural health, nutrition, hemp foods, organic agriculture, sustainable business, and entrepreneurship. Mike is the host of the Founder to Mentor podcast, lifetime member (past chairman) of the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA), lifetime member (past chairman) of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO Manitoba), and investor/advisor to a portfolio of companies.
