Starting a business can provide many challenges as well as learning opportunities. Mr. Dokter will discuss the common mistakes made early on in business ownership based on his experience.
For the past 15 years, Mike has spent his career in all areas of corporate America, new business development, and business ownership. He started his first business when he was 19 and self admittedly, “Ran it straight into the ground”. The life and business lessons he’s learned in this time have shaped how he runs his businesses today.

Mike has worked with and consulted to many local, regional, and international companies including Coca-Cola, Metro PCS, Bethany Christian Services, and Captain Morgan.
