EP 15: Mike Young — Making Over Your Mindset (And Mental Health) As An Entrepreneur
Working For A Dream
In 2007, Mike Young had a successful mortgage company and was a “liquid millionaire.” In 2008, after the market crashed, he’d lost it all and was a couple hundred thousand in debt. He was devastated — not just by the loss, but by the realization that he hadn’t been happy for some time. “It wrecked me. There was a time where I had everything that someone could want, or that you’re told you should have — go to high school, go to college, start a business, get a big house, and then you’re quote-unquote ‘going to be happy,’” Mike says. “But I found myself unhappy. I was spending 80 hours a week at the office. And I just knew I wanted something different.” The financial crash of 2008, he says, “helped act as a catalyst for that.” Today he’s the founder of The Makeover Master, host of the top-rated “Made Over Podcast,” and the author of “Made Over: How to Create a Powerful Brand That Will Transform Your Business & Save Your Life.” He’s also newly the founder and president of the Association of Mental Health and Well-Being For Entrepreneurs — a worldwide network of 24/7, 365 support in development for entrepreneurs. Mike is hugely passionate about bringing mental health and wellness support to entrepreneurs for a few reasons. He lost his brother-in-law to self-harm in 2015, and he’s seen firsthand the impact this kind of loss can have on family’s lives. And as an entrepreneur, he’s experienced his peaks and valleys with mental health — something he believes entrepreneurs may be particularly susceptible to. That’s because when you attach so much of your identity to something that exists outside of you when it gets taken away — as Mike’s business did in 2008 — the mental health impact can be profound. “Entrepreneurship is no joke,” he says. “It can be a very lonely road… I just started thinking, who’s out there to help them? Who’s out there to support entrepreneurs when we crash?” In this episode of the Working For a Dream Podcast, Patrick and Mike talk about making over your mindset, fostering resilience, and prioritizing your mental health and well-being as an entrepreneur. What You’ll Learn: How Mike, after a decade of 10-14 hour workdays, learned to prioritize sleep, nutrition, and exercise (and regulate his emotions better in the process) How he recovered from the “ego death” of losing it all and cultivated a stronger identity Why changing your environment changes the molecular structure of who you are, and why it’s key to “surround yourself with people who want the best for the very best parts of you.” And much more! Favorite Quote: “Over the last 15 years, I've had three or four significant crashes where I felt like I was lost. I felt like I was hopeless… I felt like my business was falling apart, my finances were falling apart, my life was falling apart. Just the complexity of the world — it overwhelmed me. You have these catalyst moments, and sometimes those moments that are the darkest are like your greatest blessing. Because just on the other side of that thing are these moments of brilliance.” — Mike Young How to Get Involved: Connect with Mike: The Makeover Master LinkedIn Facebook Connect with Patrick: LinkedIn Facebook Instagram
