About Me

Mike Hartman invested 30+ years in the corporate environment, gaining experience in sales, operations, and many levels of management, eventually leading to the position of General Manager for a multi-million dollar branch office. After many occurrences of buy-outs, downsizings, and mergers, his entrepreneurial spirit took over. Not wanting just a job, but a satisfying career through business ownership, he sought an industry that would fulfill his passion to help others and discovered a new and growing industry – a home inventory service. He and his wife, Cindy, created Hartman Inventory LLC in 2004. After years of learning the industry and creating a professional process, he realized it was time to help others find success as owners of their own asset inventory companies Thus, he founded Nationwide Inventory Professionals LLC, an asset inventory Business Package and License Agreement. This unique franchise-like business model provides what is necessary for others to start their own independent inventory service, including a website, newsletter, marketing materials, national certification, and mentoring/coaching to provide exactly what each needs, at a specific time, to help them grow their business. The stress, lost revenues, and trial-and-error that he endured when starting his service company is greatly reduced for the Licensees through the knowledge and experience he has today. Seeing the need for organized asset inventory-focused certification and continuing education, his most recent efforts exhibit the resulting ownership of National Inventory Certification Association™ (NICA), for which he serves as Executive Director. Mike has also exhibited his leadership through managing and coaching a variety of youth sports programs, serving on a board for a non-profit organization, and was instrumental for record-breaking fundraising initiatives.
