Miguel Leal (The Godfather of Mexican Cheese) - The Art of Cheese and Life: Overcoming Obstacles, Valuing Discipline, and Pursuing the American Dream

Miguel Leal (The Godfather of Mexican Cheese) - The Art of Cheese and Life: Overcoming Obstacles, Valuing Discipline, and Pursuing the American Dream
Joining TJ on the Adventurous Entrepreneurs Podcast today is Miguel Leal.Often hailed as the “Godfather of Mexican Cheese” in the U.S., Miguel has a remarkable story that is a testament to resilience, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit. One of six children raised in poverty after the tragic death of his father in an earthquake, Leal arrived in Wisconsin without money and speaking little English. He had no choice but to make a bed of cardboard on the factory’s boiler room floor. Despite these challenges—through grit, persistence, and hard work—Leal observed and learned every step of cheesemaking, from cleaning the equipment to cutting and packaging cheese for sale.Recognizing the growing demand for authentic Mexican cheese among the Latinx community in the U.S., Miguel pioneered the production and sale of specialty Mexican cheese. Eventually, he partnered with a master cheesemaker from Wisconsin to work with the Amish in Ohio to produce and hand-sell 60-pound wheels of cotija cheese in the Chicago metro area. The skyrocketing demand for his cheese led Leal to establish his own company, Mexican Cheese Producers, Inc., in 1994. He eventually constructed a state-of-the-art production plant in Darlington, Wisconsin—a prime location with access to the finest quality milk in the country. There, he continued to perfect recipes for various Mexican cheeses and took out patents for the machines used to produce them. Leal eventually sold his business to the global company Sigma Alimentos for 50 MILLION, which still uses his recipes, and won the 2020 World Championship Cheese Contest with their flagship cotija cheese. Today, Miguel is a successful real estate developer with a deep investment in his new passion project: supporting Mexico’s growing organic foods movement with a farm of his own, where he demonstrates sustainable organic farming methods to communities in his native country while supporting local charitable efforts.Miguel’s journey from a humble apprentice to a renowned cheese-maker and philanthropic entrepreneur embodies the virtues of hard work, innovation, and community service, making him a true inspiration.Just a few of the golden takeaways Miguel Leal shares in this episode are practical tips for building a legacy, overcoming obstacles by valuing discipline, 3 pillars to living a purposeful life, and lessons learned from pursuing the American Dream.Please enjoy this wide-ranging conversation with Miguel Leal.Follow and Connect With Miguel Leal:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cheeseguysuccess/Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/miguel-leal-240676280/Check Out Miguel’s USA Today Bestselling Book “The House that Cheese Built: The Unusual Life of the Mexican Immigrant who Defined a Multibillion-Dollar Global Industry”: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=the+house+that+cheese+built%2C+miguel+leal&crid=SFE92C9ZVZ11&sprefix=The+house+that+cheese%2Caps%2C257&ref=nb_sb_ss_ts-doa-p_2_21Connect With TJ!Link Tree: https://tjmurphy.me/Level Up Your Digital Marketing And Unlock More Freedom In Your Business: https://www.hitedigital.com/bend/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/iamtjmurphyInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/iamtjmurphy/Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tj-murphy/Interested In Joining TJ On The Show? Apply Here: https://adventurousentrepreneurspodcast.com/

And not just any kind of sales, but the right kind of sales.Imagine the charm of a fine dining server, attentive to your every need, ensuring a delightful experience.

After being overlooked in the corporate world, he took a leap of faith into the startup sphere, leading a company from a commendable $3 million to a whopping $12 million valuation during the tumultuous times of the pandemic.Yet, with success at his fingertips, the feeling of being 'stuck' lingered.

Joining TJ on the Adventurous Entrepreneurs Podcast today is Eric Recker.In this episode, Eric explains the keys to living a life of fulfillment, not just accomplishment. He has worn numerous hats throughout his life – husband, father, dentist, elite success coach, pilot, speaker, author, mountain climber, and triathlete. However, it was at the pinnacle of his achievements that he realized he was climbing without purpose. The lessons from his own journey led him to a commitment: helping others bridge the gap between where they are and the best version of themselves.In the first half of his life, Eric was driven by the grind, always reaching for the next peak. Triathlons, mountain climbing, a thriving dental practice, and extensive travel were his pursuits, but he discovered that true meaning wasn't "out there."The second half of his life is dedicated to teaching people how to live in the present and find a life of fulfillment. Through coaching, speaking, and writing, Eric's mission is to help people #WINtheNOW.Through the forced closure of his dental practice due to COVID-19, Eric realized he hadn't been present in his own life. The concept of #WINtheNOW was born from this reflection, offering a solution to the "epidemic of distraction" that plagues us all.Eric passionately equips high achievers, individuals who have achieved worldly success but crave more. He helps them clarify WHAT is truly important, WHY it matters, and HOW to create a plan filled with hope for better days ahead.Eric's journey from being bullied during his formative years to becoming a relentless striver resonates with many. He understands the burden of trying to be the best in everything and is committed to helping others find the freedom to live authentically.Burnout nearly led Eric to sell his successful dental practice, but he discovered a path to overcome it. Now, he's dedicated to assisting leaders, entrepreneurs, and medical professionals in breaking free from burnout and living their best lives both at work and at home.Just a few of the golden takeaways Eric shares in this episode are lessons learned from climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, the difference between achievement vs. fulfillment, how to avoid burnout, and what it means to #winthenow.Please enjoy this wide-ranging conversation with Eric Recker.Eric’s Website: www.ericrecker.comFollow and Connect With Eric Recker On Social Media:Instagram: @docreckerFacebook: @eric.recker.1Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/eric-recker-583849278/Connect With TJ!Link Tree: https://tjmurphy.me/Level Up Your Digital Marketing And Unlock More Freedom In Your Business: https://www.hitedigital.com/bend/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/iamtjmurphyInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/iamtjmurphy/Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tj-murphy/Interested In Joining TJ On The Show? Apply Here: https://adventurousentrepreneurspodcast.com/
