In this episode, Mike tells us about his story as a young kid and how his childhood experiences influenced how he invests his money today. He shares with us how he has made the choice to take the things that most of us would see as setbacks, and use them as fuel instead of baggage. Instead of putting it in his trunk, he instead put it in his fuel tank which eventually evolved into rocket fuel. I had a really fun conversation with Mike so I hope you enjoy this as well, and let me know what you think!
