Who We Are...

 

Mike Ferrell Grows Businesses...

Mike Ferrell is all about entrepreneurship. He grew up watching his father build a successful financial planning business and from that experience always wanted to build a business. After graduating from St. John Vianney Seminary and the University of St. Thomas in education and teaching and administrating for two years he decided that teaching was not for him. In 1987 he started his first business and has been building businesses now for 30 years. Of the 12 start-ups he’s been involved in not all have been successes and he says, “I learned much more from the businesses that failed then I did from the ones that were successful”.  He is the Co-Founder of a successful insurance brokerage company that was one of the first in the industry to solely focus on alternative distribution channels and from that experience he went on to consult and coach hundreds of agents, planners and agencies. In 2009 his first book Ultimate Breakthrough Planning: The Business Funnel Approach was published by Scarletta Press and Mike traveled around the country speaking and working with business owners and Fortune 500 companies helping them implement the process that he wrote about. Today Mike works primarily with small to mid-sized businesses helping them create and execute strategies in their businesses that give them better control of their businesses and grow their revenue and profits.

 

In his free time Mike enjoys golfing, fly-fishing and hunting. In 2014, after 30 years in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area Mike decided to move back to where he grew up in Eastern South Dakota and operates Business Growth Systems from Watertown, SD.
