Welcome to the world of Mike Rioux!

Welcome to my personal website, designed, built, and edited entirely by me. This is my way of staying connected to those whom I know and with those I have not yet met who may share similar interests. This website is for those of you like me…working hard at your “day job” and working even harder on your own time to build your own legacy.


I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.


Each of us literally chooses, by his way of attending to things, what sort of universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit. Choose wisely!


We should forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will and follow it to the end.


Mike Rioux "Brand You" Overview

I began doing websites in the early '90s on AOL, when they first granted members hosting space on their system. Ken Stevens was my inspiration and I give him full credit for my "Brand You" movement that I believe is an important part of our daily lives. One of the things I always tell people is you have to get your own website. It does not matter if you own a consulting business, run a 3-person repair shop, or you are a 38-year old CEO of 3,000 person IT firm, you need to have a presence on the web to let people know who you are.

A personal website is expected. It does not have to be expensive or super coded (better if it is not, actually). It should however tell your own unique story. Everyone is special. Everyone is different. The key — perhaps the main key — is finding what is different about you and then expressing to the world that difference and what you can offer it. A website is one way you can communicate your difference, grow your network, and make connections through out the world.
