Leonard Mello is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Internet Marketing field. His passion for marketing, and willingness to do whatever it takes makes him an integral part to any team. Most recently he has positioned himself as the Media Director for the 7 Figure Speaking Empire & Internet Movement where he manages all things Social Media. Although most of what he does is behind the scenes, he knows that his presence is felt. Being a passionate designer by nature, he integrates his ability to create strategic design aesthetics into all that he does.
Leonard was only recently introduced to the field of entrepreneurial endeavors & Internet Marketing as of 2011. He was unaware of it’s phenomenal potential. After reading Think & Grow Rich, he was instantly hooked; it was as if an empty void had finally been filled after years of searching high & low for his true passion. Almost as if by Divine Design, Napoleon Hill’s hidden manuscript Outwitting The Devil presented itself, and since Hill’s writing style resonated so much with him, Leonard instantly made it his next read.
It has always been Leonard’s goal to help others grow to their maximum potential, personally & financially. He loves to get involved in all aspects of business, and can always find the positive side to any situation. Originally hailing from New England he became a ‘drifter’ after graduating high school in 2001 with honors. Despite his academic achievements, including multiple honor societies where he has held office as President, and three separate attempts at continued education, he realized that once an individual comprehends the basic principles of any given topic, it is up to the individual to apply the knowledge in a niche of his or her own choosing. He understands that an education is valuable; however, his unique style of learning is best suited by jumping right into things.
When he has free time, Leonard enjoys writing lyrics & poetry, and refining his skills as an artist & illustrator. He also loves to read, relax, and redound upon the deeper meanings of everything. Most often you will find him in his home office; however, he makes sure to find time for his friends & family, but in the end, they accept that he is a man on a mission, and nothing will slow him down.
