Mike has an excellent understanding of technology and the importance it plays in building a brand and a small business. In 2016, Mike won a scholarship to training sponsored by Sean V. Bradley, writer of “Win the Game of Googleopoly.” This training taught the secret strategies of Google and the approaches businesses should use to dominate Google, Facebook, and other leading social network apps.

Mike takes automotive car buying seriously and has a near perfect customer rating on Google and Facebook (Mike Columbus Honda Sales Professional).
