Mike Callahan started Callahan's Lawn Care and Property Maintenance, Inc. in 1994 as a way to make money to pay for his car insurance in high school. After working his way through college with three full time crews, he made the leap into full-time lawn care and snow removal in upstate New York instead of choosing the corporate path most of his classmates pursued. After nearly 15 years in the daily grind of the business, Mike began to automate the internal and external processes and systems in his own business. This pursuit to automate allowed Mike to begin focusing on his business instead of working in it. In 2016, Callahan started his consulting and automations company, SimpleGrowth, as a way to help other business owners take their lives back from their own businesses. Mike lives in Upstate New York with his wife and two daughters.
