Michael Swaleh is a long-time student and teacher in the mortgage industry, but his path and experiences are a little different. Originally licensed as a Financial Advisor, Mike moved to mortgages in 2006 around the time he earned his Master’s in Business Administration. Quickly, he rose to the management ranks due to an unrelenting focus on accountability, quality, and expectation setting. In 2013, he had the opportunity of a lifetime to star on Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race” as leader of the Tikka Tikka Taco truck. He brought with him his Army veteran brother and their uncle, and they sought to win a food truck! After two months, and seven grueling episodes, they took 2nd place out of 8 teams. It was through this endeavor that he was introduced to the world of web-based marketing and Lead Gen. Mike has done it all and has a lot to share. He graduated with a B.S. in Commerce from Santa Clara University in 2005. Today, his days are focused on growing his team and creating LEADERS.
