Getting the Edge on Mike

What was your first job?

Early on, I did a lot of summer jobs growing up to make some extra money: paper routes, umpiring little league, some construction, etc… my first “real job” was as a research assistant for a venture capital firm.

What was your worst job?

Cleaning out a horse stable in the middle of the summer… let your imagination take it from there. Yes, that was probably the worst job…

What is your favorite quote?

“Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.” – John Wooden
