Since he could remember, Michael Bitonti, has had a deep rooted desire to change the world. He has made it his life’s mission to solve the world’s water problems and is fully committed to that cause.
Michael currently operates three companies that range from clean water solutions for the residential and commercial markets, digital marketing and business consulting, and a government wholesale contracting company.
He has dedicated his life to creating ideas/solutions/and capital to aid the efforts in developing countries on the topic of clean water solutions and availability to those who currently do not have consistent access to clean water.
His biggest project, Wave Makers, currently reaches people in over 26 States in the US and 6 Countries across the world!
He was introduced to the conversation of clean water by his best friend and business partner Nick Teixeira. In a recent interview Michael stated:
The biggest challenge he faced when entering the entrepreneurial path was
unlearning everything he thought he knew.
He had to learn how to get out of his own way. By getting rid of bad habits like low standards, need for approval, and focusing on others’ opinions, he was able to work on himself and propel himself to where he is today.
When Michael began this journey he knew he had to make a decision.
So he looked for his father as his biggest motivation when starting his life of entrepreneurship.
Once he was able to identify the path he wanted to take in life, nothing else mattered. People’s opinions and any obstacles he faced no longer mattered to him because he knew he had a purpose in life that he had to pursue. This is also why he does not believe in having competition in regards to clean water.
His next upcoming project is the construction of WaveMakers’ first clean water well in Africa, where the team will be traveling there to participate in the building of the well, as well as interacting with the village.
Michael Bitonti is a testimony to how life should be lived. He is somebody who has sacrificed his life to become an example for others to follow in both entrepreneurship and in the pursuit of a purpose driven life. By tackling on an issue as big as global access to clean water, he is showing the world that it is possible to make a difference in this world if you go all in.
