A physical & spiritual journey in the face of adversity. Crisis = Opportunity. Walk with me (figuratively, but also literally if you want) as I take on a massive steps challenge to raise funds and awareness for a rare genetic condition that I have (VEDS / Vascular EDS / Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome). Goal: 4 million steps walked and $40,000 raised by the end of 2021. While I walk, I'll also talk and reflect about my life and its everyday challenges, in the hopes that you can glean some inspiration (and humor) from it all.Donate to the cause! https://www.gofundme.com/f/walk-with-deco-4-VEDS?utm_source=podcast

Mike Is The Real Deal!
Love hearing Mikes perspectives and his outlook on life! I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Mike one-on-one (which I highly reccomend) and he has helped me process so much. His geniune spirit and understanding nature are second to none!
Wow. I never knew you faced this experience. I have no words. I remember I was 17 or 18 years old in HS at Langley High in McLean Virginia right down the street from where the Pentaogn was hit). I remember we were put on lockdown. I was ironically in Govt class. My teacher turned on the TV and the news kept replaying the planes flying into the Towers in NY. We had just heard about the Pentagon. Students started getting called to
The office and students with parents who work there were in panic. Thankfully the side of the pentagon that was hit was newly recovered to withstand fire and the windows were shatter proof (otherwise the aftermath would of been far worse), but it was still horrific and awful nonetheless.
Thank you for being vulnerable and sharing your story about your experience with 9/11. I just can’t believe you were there witnessing all of that. What an horrible tragedy to have to witness.
Inspiring - very much worth listening to!
