Mynders has an MBA, and has been an entrepreneur since his teens. After working at a job only long enough to qualify for his CPA, he went off on his own. He has created successful businesses in real estate and real estate development, nutritional products, seminars and consulting, corporate training, and in direct mail.
Originally from New Orleans, Mynders has lived in the Durango,CO area since 1999. He earned his undergraduate degree from Virginia’s Washington and Lee University in 1976 and his MBA from the University of Virginia in 1980.
Between college and graduate school, Mynders worked in the tax and audit practices of one of the world’s largest accounting firms, Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co., where he obtained his CPA certificate.
Mynders worked for others for only 3 years before going into business for himself. In the years since, Mynders has founded business, management and financial companies, a real estate development company and several internet sites.
Some of these businesses include:
- Owned several franchises of a Boston-based Business Brokerage firm
