The Veteran Project Manager Has Become a Serial Entrepreneur Since 2009, Launching Four Enterprises Providing Customized Training Solutions to Companies and Individuals
HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone loves a great comeback story, and Myles Miller has a powerful one, going from losing his job as a tech project director in the hospitality industry late in 2008 to starting LeadUP -- an enterprise focused on providing customized training solutions to companies and individuals -- in early 2009 and subsequently launching and running seven others over the next five years.
These include Learning Breaks, which harnesses the essence of a webinar to provide individuals with the single most effective way to spend one hour learning immediately applicable skills; Success HQ, a social media hub to promote local providers, services and products in any particular geographic area; and Learning Breaks 4 Me, a revolutionary approach to the field of video marketing.
But Miller, whose 30-year career in the project management field included stints in the retail and defense industries and the state and federal government, isn't focused these days on tales about comebacks. He's too busy telling the world how to be successful. Branding oneself "The Great Success Creator" seems like a bold move, but it's actually an on-target assessment of the influence that he has had on thousands of people through his speaking and training efforts.
In 2013, Miller shared his expertise as a co-author with business development expert and motivational speaker Brian Tracy of "Against The Grain," subtitled: "How To Achieve Positive Results in a Down Economy." In his chapter entitled "SUCCESS-FILLED FACTORS: From Knowledge To Action," Miller breaks down the three elements he believes people must have working daily to achieve a SUCCESS-filled life as the acronym ACT.
A is Attitude of SUCCESS, or creating a mindset and thought processes than ensure we always have positive ideas and responses flowing throughout each day. C is Connections to SUCCESS, which entails leaving one's comfort zone and talk to perfect strangers who are successful and learning what makes them that way. T is Tenacity for Success, or maintaining one's efforts to keep moving towards goals by being tenacious and not settling when obstacles arise.
But it's not enough to just read about what it takes. As Miller writes, "The next step is truly up to you. No one can do it for you. You must decide to do it for yourself." Tying everything back to his foundational acronym, he adds, "Starting today, to have the SUCCESS-filled life you want, you must ACT."
For Miller, a key element in being considered an expert in his field is that he never stops learning. There is no plateau, only gaining more knowledge from people and life experiences to help bring his mission into better focus every day. "If I can do one thing that will make me better today," he adds, "that's better for me and those I interact with."
Along those lines, and acknowledging the reality that on the road to success, no man is an island, Miller gives credit to a career transition counselor named Joe for helping him achieve his initial breakthrough as an entrepreneur -- truly the fulfillment of a sometimes quiet and suppressed, but always simmering lifelong dream.
What did he really want? To start his own company -- but, quite understandably, with little money in the bank, a family to support and a daughter in college, he was scared of what that meant and did not know where to begin.
Miller fought Joe for a while but then did what he tells a lot of people to do now; he took that first step, creating Leadup.biz, his flagship professional training and development company, in January 2009. Soon thereafter, he established Milo Service Company, LLC, as a protective umbrella organization from which to launch subsequent businesses and services.
"I'm a firm believer that when you step out and go through that first door of opportunity, you will soon see other doors that you didn't know existed," Miller says. "But you need to go through that first door to see the others."
Opening those proverbial doors to create other opportunities, Miller has become something of a serial entrepreneur. For him, it's all about making a quantitative difference in people's lives.
