Michael Ponte’s path to speaking started out early in life. As the youngest of six siblings he learned quickly, "If you want to be heard then you have to speak up!" Never one to shy away from an opportunity, his commitment and passion for service has been a driving force for the entirety of his life. Michael’s childhood was filled with many character building moments. The combination of sickly parents and older siblings thrust into running the family business, gave Michael ample time alone to choose what was truly important to him.

From working at a young age in the family business, to rising to be one of the top REALTORS® representing an international franchise, then taking the stage to deliver messages of hope, endurance, and transformation-Michael's mission has always been to move people forward. Michael is the author of the book From Lemons to Lemonade: Creating a Sweet Life Out of Bitter Circumstances. In From Lemons to Lemonade, Michael shares early life lemons that helped shaped his awareness and understanding that life happens FOR us rather than TO us. Michael’s approach will help you transform your vision of life with a goal, to advance and see opportunities for personal growth where you once saw negative occurrences.

"Huge shout out to Michael Ponte for taking the time out of his busy schedule to come and deliver amazing content to our office. It’s very apparent to me why he’s been so successful as his graceful projection of professionalism, expertise and altruism is a combination that builds trust and likability at the same time. At the end of his interactive presentation, there was a noticeable increase in energy, excitement and gratitude felt by all. I feel so blessed to be in a community where a colleague from another company will come and share nuggets of wisdom and experience to help others. We truly live in a special place and time!"

"What a beautiful book-it moved me to tears. I was blessed to have so many positive interactions with your parents and they made an impact on my life. I also could see the difference in your family, post illnesses, where you and your sister held down the daily living. I also remember you as being charismatic and such a help to your dad. It pains me to realize the struggles you had. I was happy to read the love story with your wife and all she brings to your life. Selfishness also arose as I read your book. I have three children who are now 28, 25 and 14. My youngest was 9 when, like you, her world shifted. In May, my son left for the Air Force. In September, my daughter left for grad school after living at home during most of undergrad. Lastly, in December, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, which knocked me down for months and changed me. As with your family, the life the older children had free of illness and full of fun was not that of my youngest. She has had emotional issues and has been homeschooled for the past two years. When I read the part you wrote would you go back and change things, I was crying and hopeful at the same time. Thank you for sharing your story, giving me this time to reflect on some great memories of your parents and to see how your perseverance has made you successful in both your personal and professional life.

"I started reading this book casually while standing in the bedroom waiting for my wife while she was getting ready to go somewhere. Before I knew it I was sitting down crying and wanting to hug you. I told her I was taking the book! Just boarded a plane back to Chicago and hope to finish it. Michael, you are an angel put on this earth!"
