"There are many great and inspirational people out there. But few stand out. I have known Michael Colella for 24 years now. Even at his young age of eighteen he had a natural talent for social leadership. An admirable ambition for sure. He was and still is a daring explorer in the world of entrepreneurs. Because of his many successful businesses he is a person you want as a business partner and friend. He will always give you what you need to hear not what you want to hear. He is genuine and endlessly generous in contributing his wisdom to others. I've known him to be a person who takes constructive initiative. I can and will say with all sincerity that I am thankful for what Michael has brought into my business, personal and families life. He has changed the cycle of just getting by and existing to living your life the way God intended it. Not to fear the mountain but to go through it. That's a person who will be remembered and I am honored to know him."
