Gratitude, Appreciation and the Power of Family-Owned Business, with Mike McCarthy

 

Mike McCarthy is a husband, a father and a serial entrepreneur. Over the past two decades, he is grateful to have played a major role in the growth and expansion of Keller Williams to become the #1 Real Estate Company in the world. As the Regional Operating Partner for the Greater Pennsylvania Region, he is proud to lead 9,000+ real estate agents in over 50 locations, closing $14 Billion in Real Estate sales in 2018.

Mike is also the co-founder of GoBundance and FamBundance; Co-Author of The Miracle Morning for Parents and Families, a Facilitator of Group Genius, and a Speaker and Trainer.

He is passionate about sharing wisdom that helps entrepreneurial families increase collaboration and connection, co-create shared values and goals, and form rituals and traditions that help them thrive together. In the FamBundance community, he is honored to teach the children of entrepreneurs to live growth-focused, fulfilling lives, and to help equip them to appreciate, nurture and then build upon their family’s legacy.

Mike hopes to make a lasting impact and unleash the extraordinary potential within people, especially families. He is driven by his generous heart and is deeply committed to helping his family, partners and team members shine. “McLovin,” as he is affectionately called by his closest friends, gained his nickname from his witty sense of humor and infectious laugh.
