Mike Gastin


Welcome. I’m Mike and I’m glad you’re here.

I’m a life-long entrepreneur. Whether selling seeds door-to-door as a kid, launching a start up in Africa in my 20’s, or running a design firm that worked with Fortune 500 companies, I’ve always been in love with business.

I’ve never met an entrepreneur who didn’t love what they do. Sure, times get tough, our businesses take a toll, and we would change a few things. But the fact that we’re entrepreneurs means we have the power to make our work better, to choose to make it matter.

And, what’s really amazing is the more successful we are at making our businesses better the more the people and world around us benefit.

That’s why I love helping entrepreneurs like you—because business matters. It matters to you and to everyone you come in contact with.


I’ve got a ton of content for you here. That’s what this is all about—helping entrepreneurs grow and build businesses that matter through great content.


You can read regular posts on my blog. I try to publish once a week and I keep each post short and to the point.


For content that goes more in depth, I write articles. These tend to be topic-driven and delve deeper into a business issue. My goal is to help you learn, get better and grow.


Do you listen to podcasts? Then check out Make It Matter, my podcast for entrepreneurs.

I publish every Monday morning. If you like podcasts and want to start your week off with impactful information that you can use in your business then make sure to listen!

You can subscribe in iTunes here and get each new episode delivered right to your device.


In addition to being an entrepreneur, I’m am blessed to be married to Lydia, my wife of over 24 years. We have three children and have been a homeschool family from the beginning.

We live in upstate New York, but have lived in a few different places, the most exotic being Cape Town, South Africa. (Still one of my favorite places on earth.)

When I’m not running my business or creating content I’m usually reading, traveling, or enjoying a glass of wine with friends.


You can find me on Twitter. Make sure to follow me—I follow back!

Also, let’s connect on LinkedIn, where I post articles from time to time.
