The USS Midway veterans association was the host a their 2017 annual banquet on the USS Midway flight deck. Three attendees received the distinguished medal and they were age 99, 95 and finally “Big Mike” at the young age of 91. I am sure the US Navy and The USS Midway officers and crew helped shape the character and wisdom that is the backbone of “Big Mike” in The Secret Asset.
Ok, Big Mike is 85 and Mom turns 80 real soon. So where is their favorite place in the world to travel…Las Vegas. Every year since I went to college at The University of Redlands Las Vegas is on their itinerary for 2-5 weeks a year.
No, not days, weeks. Really!
Rememeber, what Mike says in The Secret Asset, “The person who controls the math, controls the deal.”

The Bucket Story has to be one of the most compelling metaphors for the pursuit and maintainence of wealth told in just 7 minutes. Just watch for yourself and send to a friend. Did you start in Bucket #2 before racking up losses and then going back to bucket #1? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHmc24LTPTI

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.
