Inspiring AND Entertaining Stories

Mikhail does a great job telling interesting and inspiritng stories. I just listened to his connection with Stan Deland, a veteran Marine who served two tours in Iraq -- and who talks about his experience in Fellujah as a "peak experience". Last week I listened to another show from an amazon expert. Each just really got me thinking about my own story -- and what I might want to do to live a fuller life. Thanks Miqk! great work!

Mindset and Real Estate ,
