As the president of a leading energy company and author of an upcoming book, “One Million in the Bank,” Mr. Slavin is helping other Americans chart their own courses to financial success through responsible investing and entrepreneurship. Read on to learn more about Mr. Slavin’s life, career and “One Million in the Bank.”
Meet Michael L.F. Slavin
Michael L.F. Slavin is best known as the founder and president of U.S. Emerald Energy. Although Mr. Slavin currently enjoys a measure of financial success thanks to his successful business venture, he started life in an average, working-class American family. He was raised by his loving grandparents who taught him the value of hard work and encouraged him to always do his best. After high school, Mr. Slavin went on to a career in the military. He graduated from West Point and rose quickly to hold several positions of responsibility in the U.S. Army. He then was recruited out of the Army in 1985 to become an Executive VP of a commercial real estate company. However, after successfully turning the company around, they failed to live up to their commitments and Mr. Slavin found himself suddenly in the job market unemployed. These seven “in between years” were tough, but they helped prepare him to start his own company. Mr. Slavin worked at several different companies as a recruiter, insurance salesman and mergers and acquisitions, among other positions, before starting U.S. Emerald Energy in 1992. U.S. Emerald Energy has grown to become a leading energy company offering direct partnership investing in oil and gas production. Individual investors sign on to participate in well projects and, in return, receive distributions from each successful well in which they take part. Starting his own company allowed Mr. Slavin to put all the skills he’d previously learned to work and gave him the opportunity to become financially secure while helping others find financial success through investing with his company.
A Tested Path to Success
Mr. Slavin’s book, “One Million in the Bank,” is intended to help individuals who want to find their own paths to financial security and independence. Advice presented in the book is based upon Mr. Slavin’s personal experiences as an Army officer, an employee, a struggling unemployed future entrepreneur, and finally as a business owner. Rather than simply presenting one-size-fits-all suggestions and repackaging the same tired recommendations that most people already know, the book delves into the concrete actions and decision-making processes that increase the chances of becoming wealthy. Many of the world’s wealthiest individuals are not highly educated or highly accomplished; they are simply people who found something they were good at and employed smart planning to make it profitable. The topics contained in the book cover the reasons why so many businesses fail and how an up-and-coming entrepreneur can stay on track by replacing detrimental habits with behaviors likely to lead to success. “One Million in the Bank” is also intended to impart something that’s sorely needed in today’s world, hope.
“One Million in the Bank” is slated for release during the summer of 2014. To learn more about Michael L.F. Slavin and “One Million in the Bank,” visit “One Million in the Bank” today.
