Michael Fenech is a passionate entrepreneur who has built multiple tech and online businesses. He’s from Sydney, Australia and now lives on a beach there called Maroubra. His expertise lies in the eCommerce and tech startup world, and he has a knack for finding solutions to big problems. Fenech has been a mentor to over 3,000 entrepreneurs by sharing his experience across many different industries, and he considers himself fortunate to be mentored by former Facebook and Yahoo executives.
Fenech has partnered with some of the biggest companies in the world. His partnership with iHeartMedia led them to invest in his technology, allowing him to work with some of the most well-known names in the entertainment and social media world. He recalls that lots of travel and meetings were needed to close that deal, which opened the way for him to work with radio stations across the globe and top celebrities such as Ryan Seacrest and Logan Paul.
Fenech enjoyed a happy and healthy childhood. He grew up with three brothers who all went on to become professional athletes and a father who was a successful entrepreneur, and he credits the examples they set for him as having shaped who he is today. He was a good student in school and worked for his father’s company in the commercial services industry. Fenech says his father and brothers inspired him to work helping others to reach their goals.
During the COVID lockdowns, he co-founded The EndGame Network as a service for Amazon entrepreneurs based in Australia and Asia, connecting them with other sellers within a global network to learn how to take their businesses to the next level. He and his business partner Jamie Paros host regular Zoom calls for eCommerce sellers, bringing hundreds of entrepreneurs together with inspirational guests ranging from Olympic gold medalists to best-selling authors.
They coach people on how to sell products on Amazon using the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) program. This program allows sellers to send their products to Amazon’s fulfillment centers so that Amazon can handle the packing, shipping, and customer service whenever they make a sale. Many people were helped through difficult COVID times by learning how to launch a successful eCommerce business on Amazon. “The rush of making someone’s life easier kept me going during hard times,” Fenech says.
Fenech recalls that the biggest challenges he ever faced were when he was initially raising capital and had to quickly improvise and adapt when some big investors pulled out at the last minute and certain deals were jeopardized. He likes to clear his head by going for nature walks, which he says allow him to come back to work refreshed and ready to be super productive. He also loves to read, especially books on mindset; he learned early on that your mindset is what mostly determines your level of success or failure.
Fenech writes for Entrepreneur and Fast Company, where he shares his experience in various industries to help people as much as possible. His extensive business experience in tech and eCommerce enables him to serve others while doing what he loves simultaneously. He’s currently working on two ongoing projects that he promises will be massive disruptors in their respective industries and solve huge problems.
Fenech is active on Instagram and TikTok. He creates and shares engaging video posts that draw on his experience and knowledge from building startups, raising capital, and launching many successful businesses. His happy, energetic, and confident personality delivers just what entrepreneurs need to move the needle on their own businesses and achieve the success that they’re looking for.
