Mike Lauesen
Motivational Speaker

Mike Lauesen is a lifelong learner and student. Mike’s purpose in life is to make an impactful, positive difference in every life he touches. He was greatly influenced by his upbringing. He grew up with seven brothers and sisters in a modest three-bedroom ranch-style home with one bathroom. He worked several jobs in high school, learning the value of hard work from his parents and older siblings.

While attending the University of Minnesota on an athletic scholarship, he learned invaluable life lessons one summer selling cutlery door-to-door. After graduation, Mike started his career in accounting (a recovered C.P.A.), then sold computers and software and eventually founded his own specialty chemical/coating company (Nicoat) in 1985 at twenty-eight years of age. After building Nicoat into a successful professionally managed international company, he exited as founder/CEO and started a new career as a professional speaker and life coach.

He is passionate, funny, and entertaining as a professional speaker. Mike is a Competent Toastmaster (International Speaking Association) and coaches/ mentors business leaders or anyone who is a ready student.
