Today we’d like to introduce you to Michael D. Wilson.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Michael. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Growing up, I was that kid that always took toys apart. I wanted to know at a very young age how things work. This obsession with understanding drove my parents crazy. In all fairness, I was breaking all of the toys that they brought for me. Yet, this habit taught me how to assess components and reverse engineer parts, giving me a natural eye for problem-solving and creative thinking.
After starting several businesses, I realized that I really like the process of determining company inefficiencies and finding solutions. After a few years of consulting businesses as a side gig to my other companies, I decided to go all-in on something that I am passionate about and that had the potential to impact businesses around the world in a positive way. That moment was the start of what is now Processology, Corp.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Starting a business with no financial backing and no larger network has its challenges. I have personally had to make many sacrifices to keep my vision alive. I would say the hardest thing about starting a business is mindset and faith. You have to know that you’re going to succeed regardless of current circumstances, other people’s opinions, or even what that scared voice in your head is saying. It is much easier said than done.
When money and resources get low, you have to push yourself forward even harder in those times. When that big deal is lost, you have to brush it off and keep pushing forward. Giving up is not an option. You have to be crazy about your success until it’s no longer crazy because things are falling into place. I live by these words, “Create the life you want, but love the one you have.” You have to find the good in everything you do, the good in the bad, and the success in the failure.

What were you like growing up?
I started running my family business at the age of 17, and while business fascinated me, entrepreneurship wasn’t my initial dream. I wanted to be an architect. I loved the idea of capturing someone’s vision and turning it into a set of blueprints that could be followed to realize the exact vision the client had (fulfilling their dream). The thought of making someone’s vision come true inspired me.
Incidentally, the dream of being an architect came and vanished right before my eyes after graduating high school. It was either going to school with no way to pay for it or go to work in the family business, so I could survive. In the end, I captured my original dream of becoming an architect – I became an architect of business operations and processes. I listen to what my clients want and create innovative blueprints that empower them to achieve their desired outcomes. So, in the end, dreams do come true, just not in the perfect straight line we imagine them in!
