Mike’s Home Page

Thanks for checking out my website and welcome to the Home Page (I applaud you because I couldn’t figure out how to get here without help).   I’m grateful you’re here and welcome your positive and constructive ideas and thoughts.

Why Am I Doing This?  For most of my life, I’ve tended to be a very private person. There’s a lot that goes into why I developed, and preserved, that tendency, which I plan to explore in my blogs and podcasts. Now that I’m 52 (there’s really nothing significant about the number, it’s just that now, at this age, I’m finally making progress), I’m intrigued by the idea of more publicly sharing my thoughts, and feelings, on the things and people that I’m interested in and curious about.  If I’m lucky, I will enjoy making some (even the smallest) contribution to the increased success of as many people (and in particular entrepreneurs) and organizations as possible.

 Warning – I’m just getting started, so please be patient.

What I’m Hoping to Accomplish?  Over time, my goal with both the blog and the podcast is to share insights and experiences (my own and those of some of the best people I’ve been lucky enough to meet) on the best and most impactful ideas I’ve come across for improving as a leader and positively affecting the organizations and the people around me. I don’t intend to preach, or to tell you my way (or one way) is better than another. Rather, my goal is to expose you to new thoughts, new people and new ideas that might, at a minimum, resonate with you enough for you to read / listen and consider.

What you do with it is, of course, up to you.

On the Investing Page, I’m just sharing what I’m putting my money into. I believe that one of the most beneficial things I can do is to invest in companies that keep people working, create things that make our lives better (longer & happier) and more productive, or solve a problem that’s gone long unsolved.

If you have investment ideas for me, please share.
