Show Notes

In this episode of The Brave Podcast, we get to hang out with Mike Acker. His story starts off with a bit of a shock; his father was a drug smuggler and his mother was a witch. Despite those circumstances, they both found God and became heavily involved in missions. Mike shares what it was like to grow up in Mexico and some of the challenges he faced. He then shares how he changed his path from law school into full time ministry.  Later in his story, he shares how he found himself burntout as a pastor leading him into sales then entrepreneurship. Mike's story shows us that no matter what path you take, God can use all of it for good.
Mike is a speaker, leadership coach, and bestselling author, with over 19 years of experience in speaking, leadership development, and organizational management. He recently moved to the southeast where he lives with his wife and son.
