Pinnacles: Pathways to The Apex

Mike Mercurio knows that you don’t need to reinvent the wheel to be successful. The diverse entrepreneurs he works with have learned from others who came before them. Now, they’re sharing their stories with the next generation. In this video interview series, Mike talks to the extraordinary people who have reached the pinnacle of business achievement. Each entrepreneur has charted their own unique route to success, but all share the same sense of determination and accomplishment. From challenges and headaches to shortcuts and the value adds, you’ll learn not only from their triumphs but also their failures and missteps.

If you have a story to share, Mike wants to hear from you—because every person building a business can benefit from others’ experience. As he says, “It is good to be lucky in life but it’s better to stack the deck so the odds are in your favor.”
