I help entrepreneurs get unstuck, take back their power, achieve their life objectives, and create the futures they want.

I love supporting and helping entrepreneurs bring their dreams to fruition, break through barriers, and achieve massive success. 

As an entrepreneur myself, I’ve helped found, grow, and sell 2 waste treatment, recycling, and disposal companies. These companies collectively generated more than $500M in revenue while I was involved and sold for more than $180M.

I’ve lived in entrepreneurial shoes like yours since I was 26. For 30 years I’ve been through – and am still on – the roller coaster you’re on. I’ve experienced the excitement, pain, grit, and mistakes that come with every entrepreneurial journey.

I’m very selective about my OwnerShift Coaching relationships.

I don’t do this work to make a living.
I do it to make a difference.

I know how hard it is to be an entrepreneur and what a long shot it can be to achieve the success and freedom that are the entrepreneurial goal. I also know what it takes to get there.

I’m a selfish [and servant] leader with a proven talent for developing exciting vision and mission initiatives, building the teamwork, talent and systems necessary to realize those initiatives, and executing with a team to deliver the desired results.

“A single word description I would use for Mike Malatesta would be a SUCCESS! A success in and at life, business, and family.”

Weekly Content to Unlock the Greateness Within You

On the How’d It Happen Podcast, I have important conversations with amazingly successful people from all walks of life. I dig in deep with every guest to get to the roots of their success. To discover not just how it happened, but why it matters.

Listen to the Podcast

My new book, “Owner Shift – How Getting Selfish Got Me Unstuck is a philosophical memoir that reveals the secret to why so many entrepreneurs get stuck and how they can SHIFT to get free once again.

It tells the story of how I found myself in the Valley of Uncertainty, a place where many entrepreneurs end up stuck, confused and feeling sorry for themselves, like I did.

It was a place I hated but didn’t know how to climb out of.

Until a messenger that I barely knew and wasn’t looking for showed up and put me on the path that eventually led me out of that Valley and into a future that I owned and made my property.

What the Readers Say

Mike is not an Instagram star. He’s not driving a McClaren or posting pictures of a tropical beach house. He has no secrets, and certainly no formula to sell. What he has is a good story of how a regular guy with grit and perseverance created something from nothing. He’s humble and has an amazing story of success few entrepreneurs ever achieve.

I love Mike’s writing. It’s clear, concise, and wildly entertaining. I found myself sucked in from the very first sentence. His transparency and willingness to put himself out there as he unwinds his personal journey through entrepreneurship is admirable and refreshing.

In my book Owner Shift, I don’t give you “The 5 Steps” to achieve success, because there’s no such thing.
But there’s something much more valuable.
I give you a path and a plan that will get yourself unstuck, build confidence, take responsibility, and attract new levels of success.

Ultimately accomplishing more than you ever thought possible.
