About mike

Mike Dillard is an entrepreneur in Austin Texas. He built his first million-dollar business by the age of 27, teaching small business owners how to effectively market their products and services online using “attraction-marketing” strategies.

In 2010 he founded a financial education company in order to teach others how to achieve financial freedom through investment strategies commonly reserved for the wealthy.

Combined, his businesses have produced more than $50 Million in revenue without outside funding.

Today Mike dedicates his time to mentoring other entrepreneurs, and developing technologies in the aeroponics industry that will give people around the world access to clean, healthy, organic food at a fraction of today’s current prices.

He spends his free time pursuing his passion for auto racing, competing in the Baja 1000, Mint 400, and SCCA.

“Ron is a genius when it comes to building a profitable business, period. Everything he touches turns to gold. Mike can analyze any business model in any niche, and increase it’s profitability by a factor of 10x. In fact, I built an 8-Figure business following his trainings, philosophies, and principles.”
“Mike has a facility for making difficult financial concepts come to life in a simple, practical way. He lives these concepts and passes them on in easy-to-understand stories about how he uses them to better his own life.”

The most valuable asset a company owns is its email list of customers, prospects, and fans. Your email list is a virtual distribution channel through which you provide value, build a relationship, and market your products and services to your audience.

Over the past ten years, I’ve built my email to more than 400,000 current subscribers, which has produced over $50 Million in revenue.

List-Grow is a click-by-click implementation program where you’ll sit over my shoulder as I show you exactly how to build a large audience and email list for your business.


After growing Magnetic into an 8-figure publishing company, I retired from the direct-selling industry in 2010 in order to pursue my passion for financial education and investing.

As I watched the financial collapse of 2008, it became very clear to me the “rules” of money had changed, and that all of us needed a better way to create financial security and opportunity in our lives.

In 2010 I founded The Elevation Group, with one simple mission… To help entrepreneurs build a business that makes money by serving others. And then teach them how to use that money to create life-long wealth and a legacy for their family.

Without a single dime of funding, EVG acquired 8,600+ paid customers and produced $3.2 Million in revenue in its first 7 days in business. I sold my ownership in EVG and left the company in 2014.

Tiger 21

This new quest to master my financial future and help others do the same led to an introduction to a very special organization called Tiger21. I joined the Austin Chapter as a Member in 2014.

Forbes calls it, “the wealthiest, most powerful social-networking group in the world. With less than 300 Members who manage more than $20 Billion in personal assets, Tiger21 is one of the most concentrated organizations of successful entrepreneurs on the planet.”

Tiger21’s mission is to support companies, foundations, and fellow entrepreneurs who strive to contribute value to the world and promote liberty.


In 2005, I wrote my first book called Magnetic Sponsoring in order to teach entrepreneurs in the network marketing industry, how to build their businesses using modern, online marketing techniques.

The strategies were revolutionary in an industry that had depended upon home meetings for decades. That book would go on to sell over 100,000 copies, and change that industry forever. Its been an honor and a privilege to have created something thats had such a profound effect on so many people from around the world.
