People’s Choice – Mick Spencer

Congratulations to the People’s Choice Winner Mick Spencer! People’s Choice was chosen through social media, combining not just likes, but number of shares over facebook, throughout twitter, via stumble upon and Linkedin. It was a tight race the whole way  but Mick cleverly tapped into not just his Australia wide customer base and mentor / friendship networks, he also received a lot of support from Hawaii where he has just launched the first international arm of OnTheGo Sports.

He may only be 21 years old, but not many people that age can say that they started a business from scratch and have built it to a point where the predicted turnover for the year will be over $1 million dollars! Again, Mick is very media savvy, forms great collaborative partnerships that make sense, has a wide group of very well known mentors in his industry and is always “on the go” building a bigger and better brand each day.

Congrats Mick!
