It is safe to say that I have wandered a bit. I served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of most, climbed mountains (I jumped off of them too), taught fitness, owned a gym, and have spent the last few years speaking to organizations and leaders. It has been a journey, and in all honesty, I have no idea where it is going. I seek the things that make me uncomfortable. I move towards things that scare me. I think you should too
Episode 200 - Micah Fink
Micah was raised in upstate New York and joined the military in 2003, later becoming a US Navy Seal and paramilitary contractor. Micah started Heroes and Horses in 2014 after realizing that, despite the thousands of PTSD-related nonprofits, and the billions spent every year, the statistics on veteran suicide and addiction were growing rapidly. In response to these staggering statistics, Micah created a veteran nonprofit with programming that was unlike anything else out there. His work with veterans has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Men's Journal, Tedx, YETIs 180 Out, Executive Producer of the 500 Mile Project, Ben Shapiro, Laura Ingraham, and many other national media outlets. When Micah isn't working, traveling, or spearfishing off the coast of a foreign land he is on a small ranch with his wife, Mackenzie, and their four children.
