About the Author
How to explain someone s ability, from an early age, to pull the most meaningful lessons and truths about our lives from the ordinary occurrences of day-to-day life? Maybe as the third oldest of thirteen children the self-reliance required to move ahead and achieve caused such intense observation of events and interactions. In any case, Mike Jaroch, now at the age of 67, has documented all the key lessons and insights he has learned along the way. His two children, Julie and Michael, have blessed him and his wife, Marsha, with five grandsons. The guidance for those five boys was a primary motivation for Mike to capture these truths and the stories behind them. He hopes that they will serve many as they take on the challenges within their own lives.
Mike grew up in the small northern Illinois town of Mundelein. With a business degree from Northern Illinois University and a MBA from the Lake Forest School of Management, he has enjoyed a very successful career with both large Fortune 50 companies and technology start-up ventures. For the past twelve years, he has been an independent management consultant working with a multitude of companies across a wide range of industries.
He and his wife now reside in Lone Tree, Colorado.
