Big Mike and mom in the book are in real life my dad and mom. Here they are dancing up a storm and living and loving it. Mom was the last of 11 children and Big Mike has one brother. As you learn in the book with big Mike it’s all about the math…”math does not lie” as Big Mike would say and that theme holds true throughout the book as Big Mike digs into the reality of numbers and multi million dollar decisions.
The best Italian cook in my world. Nanna, was the best as noted in strategy number 2 in the book. Big Mike’s mom, nanna immigrated from Italy through Ellis Island. In her 70’s and 80’s I would take her to The North End in Boston for Italian wine and cookies. Later we would just walk through the Italian neighborhood arm in arm, buy some fresh bread and enjoy life.
