Before Mike’s IT career began, he grew up on a farm in a small town in Florida where he gained the most valuable experience in life. At 10 years old, every morning at 5:30 AM, he walked half a mile to let the cows eat in the rye fields before getting on the school bus while during the summers, it was back to the hot tobacco fields. He quickly learned that having an education would be better company than just hard work alone.
