About MJ DeMarco
MJ DeMarco is an entrepreneur and international best-selling author whose books have been translated into over 25 languages worldwide. He is currently the co-founder of https://GoalSumo.com, a unique goal-setting and productivity system based on his proprietary 1/5/10 Strategy.
He is also the founder of Viperion Publishing Corp., a media company that manages, distributes, and licenses his published work. He also is the founding member and creator of The Fastlane Forum, an entrepreneurial discussion forum featuring nearly 1,000,000 posts and 80,000 members, one of the web's top destinations for Fastlane entrepreneurial business discussions.
Before embarking into the world of authorship, MJ DeMarco was the former start-up Founder/CEO of Limos.com and LimoForSale.com (1997-2007), two global ground transportation aggregators and marketplaces that he successfully built and grew into profitable multi-million dollar enterprises, all with no money, no formal training, and with just a few employees. In 2001, he sold the company in an exit event but later reacquired the company via bankruptcy reorganization. He later sold the company again in 2007 to a Phoenix-based private equity company.
By refusing to accept society's default template for mediocrity (THE SCRIPT: jobs, 401(k)s, frugality, give your life savings to Wall Street) MJ was able to semi-retire young in his 30s without sacrificing the good life. Yes, that means he isn't driving a 20 year old truck, he isn't living in a trailer down by the river, and he isn't buried in Excel spreadsheets while he broods over the Starbucks he couldn't drink because saving $4.12 was more critical. (Do people seriously believe this?)
Currently, MJ lives in the beautiful foothills of Alpine, Utah, at the base of the Wasatch Mountains, where he endeavors to live a life of compassion, health, and happiness while empowering people to live their best life.
