Mike was born and raised in the Blue collar suburbs of Detroit. He joined the US Army at the age of 17 and his mother signed the papers so quickly that she ripped the contract, then she asked the recruiter, "can you take him today??" He spent 12 years in the Army, making my way up through the ranks to Drill Instructor and eventually becoming a commissioned officer. He cashed in his Army chips to settle down with his wife and start a family in Michigan, where he subsequently got into the investment business. Most recently, he founded a coaching and consulting firm dedicated to serving the ranks of his brothers and sisters in the investment and insurance business. Mike has a podcast called The Awesome Wholesaler Experience to broadcast value and entertainment to the sales people of the world. You will be entertained today, so enjoy the show and check out Mike on iTunes.
