Let's get to the show...

Making it Happen by Building Tribes of Certified Consultants

As you will hear in this episode, Mitch Russo has worked with and coached some of the biggest names in business, like Tony Robbins, Jay Abraham and Kevin Harrington. You would think Mitch had it easy his entire life. However, just as with anyone else, Mitch has overcome quite a few Kick in the Gut moments to be the man he is today. Now, Mitch Russo helps CEOs create extreme leverage by building independent tribes of certified consultants.

Mitch Russo started working as an Electrical Engineer at Digital Equipment Corp in Maynard, MA. I migrated to application engineering for Mostek (a semiconductor company) and then to selling chips to large and small companies alike.

In 1985, Mitch entered the software business as the founder of Timeslips Corp (sold to Sage Plc) after creating the largest network of Certified Consultants in the software industry, helping Intuit Corp create their own Certified Quickbooks Accountant Network as well. After selling his company, Mitch then ran Sage Plc in the US as the COO, with over 300 staff. Moving back to Boston, Mitch then found himself involved in the VC community, first as an advisor to startups and then as the CEO of the largest furniture shopping site early in 2000;

In 2007, responding to his friend Chet Holmes request to help solve a problem, Mitch Russo became involved with his business.

Later Mitch Russo ran a $25M business from his spare bedroom converted to a home office. He learned so much from his dearest friend Chet. More than anyone, Chet prepared Mitch for what he does today.

Later, Mitch went on to write an Amazon #1 Best Seller: The Invisible Organization, which is a detailed blueprint explaining step-by-step how to transform a traditional physical infrastructure into a virtual powerhouse of a company.

Since then, Mitch Russo has been involved in several exciting projects, including a partnership with Kevin Harrington, launching a new brand on the radio.

Mitch has helped hundreds of coaches build a profitable practice through his Master Class and through private client relationships.

Now Mitch Russo’s greatest passion is helping CEOs get extreme leverage by building independent “tribes” of Certified Consultants. This builds loyalty with your best clients and deeply engaging them through a powerful, integrated community which happens to drive massive profits year after year.
