THE INNOVATIVE RIPPLE EFFECTS

I found working with Mike and Nina to be one of my greatest professional pleasures ever. Their creativity alone made the effort worthwhile, but what impressed me the most was their open, kind and supportive style. I strongly believe that working with Inspirer will lead me to the success I have envisioned for this juncture in my career and will propel me to make an even larger contribution to a greater good than I could ever imagine.

Inspirer has been an inspiration (the Inspirer name is not just a name!) to me and the team at Cloud Elements since our company was just an idea. They helped us mold it into a real product with a real message. Mike is one of the most creative and driven individuals I’ve ever worked with.

Working with the Inspirer team has been a game changer for me. From every single step along the way, I have been continuously blown away by the level of detail, professionalism, and also by the personal aspect of working with the Inspirer team. Working with Mike and Nina has renewed my belief in my business and the impact I know I can make in the lives of millions! They are top notch and I would work with them everyday of the week!

Inspirer has creative ideation & strategic abilities that are translated into tangible business assets that are incredibly valuable. They see things that can help you take your company to a new level that others cannot see. They accomplish this from closely listening to your needs and walking you through their process. A joy to work and partner with!

Mike is a mentor’s mentor. Having worked with him for over 5 years on Founders Institute companies, I’ve seen first hand the value he brings to others. His process for thinking through market opportunity is very powerful. Mike is an innovation & idea machine. Mike has a method for thinking about opportunity that never fails to find new approaches to business. He is not only a proven serial Entrepreneur but he has a methodology to make innovation a repeatable process. When I’m looking to do my next thing, Mike is on my short list of people to call. Mike can speak and is also a world class communicator. His keynote speech about his personal story is one of the best I have ever heard. Based on an analogy between being a “serial killer” and a “serial entrepreneur”, Mike was informative, entertaining, but mostly inspirational. Everyone in the room left feeling that they could go out and do amazing things. Mike has not only inspired me to be more innovative professionally, but he has inspired me to complete a 15 year + vision of running the Leadville Trail 100.

When I started collaborating with Inspirer, it didn’t take long to understand how they might be able to help. Their professionalism and thoroughness has helped me tremendously in my career. The Inspirer team are true ideation experts that I’m pleased to be aligned in this process.

I’ve known Mike for years now, and he is consistently a totally original thinker. It’s not easy to approach all of the business world — and indeed all of life — as an iconoclast, but Mike has always done it, and always will. He approaches things that have been looked at by lots of people and is able to come up with a new take, and then will move mountains through pure hard work and tenacity to get to the solution.

Mike is one of the most inspirational people I’ve ever known. If you need ideas, he’s your man. If you need UI design thoughts, he’s your man. Now that I think about it, if you need any sort of help, he’s your man!

There are several reasons I would recommend Inspirer. They are visionary regarding product. They can spot trends and the confluence of several seemingly disparate trends. They’re reliable, helpful, friendly, etc. But most interestingly (at least in my mind), is their ability to solve problems in a way that may not be obvious to even a seasoned practitioner. In my own case, they’ve given me several meaningful bits of advice in areas that I know intimately. It takes off-kilter observations to remind me to look at issues through several different perspectives.

I was invited to a wine tasting at a winery in Switzerland because of my decision to work with Inspirer. Thank you Mike and Nina for the inspiration and help in pursuing my dreams and these opportunities through your ideation process and strategic brilliance!

I’ve had the honor or working with Mike at Founder Institute for several years. He’s an amazing mentor and an idea machine. I love the Inspirer concept. Mike himself is an incredible inspirer.

Nina is an incredibly personable and ambitious individual. She truly is a “go-giver” and somebody I am more than comfortable recommending. Nina is great at helping people identify their objectives and setting a successful strategy in place. Professionally speaking, she is a truly valuable resource and somebody I hope more people have the honor of working with. Nina has my full endorsement in all that she does.

Matthew Harris

Nina is an amazing professional. She goes above and beyond for her clients. Nina has such a good nature about her and can relate with people, giving them the best service possible. I would highly recommend her for any engagement.

People like me are drawn to Inspirer because now there is a trusted platform where entrepreneurs can feel like they are cultivated. Mike & Nina are the ones for this job. They are tenacious, wicked smart, experienced, and have proven success. Most importantly, they are truly passionate about the idea of helping people and businesses. I couldn’t imagine a better and more hard-working couple to put Inspirer into the hands of every professional.
