Marketing Expert Michael Bartley Just Inspired Everyone With His Unique And Powerful Story!
Today we’d like to introduce you to Michael Bartley.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
Thank you for having me. I am from a small town named Orangeburg South Carolina.
I am now a successful digital marketing expert. I currently own and operate a successful digital marketing agency called Morethan1solution Digital Marketing Agency or “M1S Digital” For Short.
I have trained under other notable and successful entrepreneurs in the digital marketing industry like Anthony Morrison and more recently Joel Kaplan. In 2011 I was afforded the opportunity to meet Millionaire online entrepreneur “Anthony Morrison”.
I was picked for his “Success With Anthony” course that later became his official infomercial.
The point of the show was to show that anyone could start an online business and generate revenue in their first days of starting. I was able to generate $1,032.00 in commissions in less than 24hrs after Mr Morrison’s 1 on 1 training. This would be the first milestone of many for me and my new found affiliate marketing online business.
In addition to affiliate marketing I also went into the e-commerce space. My First 2 stores failed, but learning from those mistakes would take my 3rd e-commerce niche store up to 6 Figures in revenue monthly in less than 1 year.
The past 5 years I’ve been blessed to be able to travel the world with my family while living what they call the laptop lifestyle!
I consider myself blessed to be able to tell my story.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
I’ve had many hardships before in business but you do not let that stop you from reaching your goals. I’ve dealt with being called a scammer and far worse in the past.
I don’t make excuses, I find solutions. I’ve never shared this, but back in 2012 when I arrived in Jackson MI for Mr. Morrison’s training I literally had less than $150 to my name. I did not know what to expect but I believed if I took full advantage of the opportunity to learn the skill of marketing from him it would change my life.
I didn’t have a rental car, but rode with another student to get to class everyday. No excuses. I didn’t even have a debit card or bank account back then! I got a prepaid card from Walgreens and loaded it as instructed with $25 for my first solo ad. No excuses That solo ad would net me the same $1,032 in 1 day I spoke about earlier!
Building my agency came with many technical challenges. Saying this I am visualizing the nights I would fall asleep on the cpu trying to figure out how to build a website, how to integrate products, etc.
I was willing to do whatever it took to get the result I was looking for.
Looking back I would do it all over again because I am experiencing my results. Your hard work will be worth everything you are going thru! Do not quit EVER!
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I consider myself to be 1 of the best marketers in the industry.
I also consider my agency M1S Digital to be 1 of the highest quality online service providers for local business owners everywhere. We provide a wide range of services for local business owners.

What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
My advice is to always remain teachable. Understand that failure is a part of the process. Changing your mindset and finding structure will be the biggest game changers for you.
If you are a lazy person DO NOT stay that way. Stop making excuses and change that. I schedule events daily on my Google calender so I will be reminded of where my focus should be and when.
Focus on 1 task at a time. I know of a lot of entrepreneurs that are all over the place and in turn they don’t get much accomplished.
Make sure you are progressing daily by holding yourself accountable.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success to me is what I am feeling right now. Freedom! I have worked 9 to 5 jobs my entire life. I can’t explain how it feels to not be bound by someone else’s schedule.
Abundance. As a child I didn’t travel much. We didn’t have the money for it. It feels amazing to be able to travel when we desire to and create awesome memories with my family.
Even after my initial success in 2012 I fell back into my old ways and became unproductive again. I had to really focus.
The amount of money you have can make you complacent If you are not careful.
Truth be told, I believe I would have been doing this interview with you years earlier had I stayed active in the industry.
What’s next for you?
I’ve always loved exotic cars. My dream was always to own one. While on a family vacation in Los Angeles I noticed a lot of Lamborghinis driving around and signs saying you could drive one. We did an excursion where we drove up to the Hollywood sign in a Lambo to take pictures for $1250.00 . I noticed how long the line was and instantly starting doing the math!
This particular person pulled in over 30k that day! At that moment I realized You can use these cars to make money everyday in addition to driving around looking cool in them. I was then introduced to this new business model while training with my Mentor Ethan Duran. He is a big deal in the exotic car industry.
We partnered and recently launched “MB3 Exotic Auto Inc” Now I am able to provide the experience of driving a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Rolls Royce etc to anyone!
We now service Major cities like New Jersey, New York, Miami, Los Angeles and expanding.
