S2 EP117: How to Build and Scale a $400 Million Company with Mike Fata

May 18, 2022



Starting your own business is no easy task. You have to be passionate about your idea, be willing to put in the hard work, and be dedicated to seeing it through. But what if you could make your business a multimillion-dollar company? That's an entirely different story.


There are many things that go into making a business successful, and it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and perseverance. But if you're able to achieve success, it can be incredibly rewarding. Not only do you get to see your vision become a reality, but you also get to reap the financial rewards.


Of course, becoming a multimillionaire doesn't happen overnight. It takes years of blood, sweat, and tears. It's not easy to turn your dreams into a reality. The world is full of people who have given up on their passions, choosing instead to live vicariously through the accomplishments of others. But it doesn't have to be that way. If you're willing to put in the hard work, you can make your dreams a reality.


Join us in this week’s episode with Mike Fata, who co-founded Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods from 1998 to 2016. He ran all aspects of the company as chairman of the board and CEO in February 2019. Mike helped with the strategic sale of Manitoba Harvest for $419 million. 


In this episode, we discuss:

  • What the secret is to create a multimillion-dollar company from a mere idea
  • Why it’s important to have passion in the business you want to create
  • The importance of having and honing an entrepreneurial mindset from a young age
