According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases and 600,920 cancer deaths will occur in the US this year. According to the US Small Business Administration, 9% of the US population are small business owners and entrepreneurs. That means over 150,000 small business owners will be diagnosed with cancer, and more than 50,000 won’t survive, leaving their families, employees, and customers behind.
Until now, there hasn’t been a handbook for business owners who are diagnosed with cancer and have to deal with running a business that takes 40–80 hours a week and at the same time caring for a spouse, children, employees, and customers. This breakthrough book, Cancerpreneur, guides the entrepreneur, business owner, spouse, children, employees, and friends through the process of dealing with the complexities of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Stage 3a cancer survivor, serial entrepreneur, and 13-time #1 bestselling author, Mike Koenigs, provides a solution to this complex mess. He successfully survived a cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery, while keeping his marriage, relationship with his young son, and business intact. During his recovery, he also managed—with the help of his incredible team and advisors—to package and sell his business to a publicly traded company.
As a 5-year survivor, Mike’s friends, family, and associates frequently call him for cancer advice. After taking hundreds of calls and giving hours of cancer and health recommendations, suggestions, referrals, and solutions, Mike finally turned his experience and expertise into a bestselling book that can provide entrepreneurs diagnosed with cancer with life-saving strategies.

About Mike Koenigs
Originally from tiny Eagle Lake, Minnesota (population 763), Mike barely passed high school, never went to college, but taught himself how to program and write video games when he was 14 to escape his small-town roots and become a serial entrepreneur, building software and training programs to help entrepreneurs get attention to get found, seen, heard, watched, and read on any device, anytime, anywhere, and on demand.
For Mike, it’s not all about the money—he’s raised over $2.4mm for his wife Vivian’s Just Like My Child foundation. He’s also a stage 3a cancer survivor, completing 9 months of chemotherapy and 33 radiation treatments. His doctors say he’s healthy and cancer-free.
He’s a 13-time #1 bestselling author, “Marketer of the Year” winner, serial entrepreneur, filmmaker, international speaker, and patented inventor. His products have simplified and automated marketing for over 54,000 small businesses, authors, experts, speakers, coaches, and consultants in 121 countries.
Mike built and sold his last two businesses to publicly traded companies, including his most recent exits, Traffic Geyser and Instant Customer. His first company, Digital Cafe, was sold to the publicly traded Interpublic Group.
