We want to inspire you today with someone special. When most people hear the name Mickey Maurer it is related to business or writing because he has had much success with both.  But today we are going to talk about adventure, giving, and happiness, areas where he has also had much success.  I have had the pleasure of getting to know Mickey over the last 17 years.  We may have bonded over being persuaded to represent our age brackets at the Corporate Challenge in the running events over the years. Mickey is one of the most positive, giving, and energetic people I know.  Mickey Maurer’s career as an attorney, author and entrepreneur has included cable television, film production, radio broadcasting, publishing, real estate, and banking. Mickey is an active participant in numerous business, civic, educational, and philanthropic organizations.  In 2001, Mickey established Mickey’s Camp, a charitable endeavor that has raised over $3 million  for central Indiana charities. Recently he traveled to Poland to help with the Ukrainian refugees. Some of Mickey’s hobbies include mountain climbing, having successfully summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, skiing, and underwater photography. At 80 years old he doesn’t seem to be sitting idle. 

What a fun conversation we had with Mickey. Mickey is a person that is always learning and using his skills and knowledge to help others.  On this podcast we talk about climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu twice.  We had a heartfelt conversation about his recent trip to Poland to help with the Ukrainian refugees.  This was my favorite part of the podcast. According to Mickey one of the keys to happiness is to stay curious.  There is definitely some inspiration and wisdom here.  Stay curious friends!
