Changing Culture + Climate

Mike has accomplished things that few people his age have done, and his reckless pursuit of his passions has been a significant factor in getting him there.

In this talk, Mike explains that every decision we make can have a lasting impact on our lives and motivates people to live life intentionally, with purpose, and with a healthy dose of correctly-applied recklessness.
