Hi, I’m Mike. Also known as Wilkesy to many.

What started out four years ago as a small weekly e-mail to a few friends and colleagues on Tuesday morning’s evolved into a larger, slightly more structured Friday morning note. Then, after an entire Christmas holiday day spent in a Starbucks (and nearly throwing my computer in the garbage), I created something that vaguely resembled a website with the domain name, http://www.mikesmailbag.org.

I don’t write because I’m an expert or master of any domain. I write to connect and share my experiences. There is something to be said for engaging in the collective experience. Learning from others own unique tales and tribulations. Whether that be through leaving a comment, writing an e-mail, setting up a phone call, sharing a coffee / beer / glass of wine; to me, this is where all the juice is in life. Learning to be vulnerable with one another so that we can harvest the shitty parts of life into lessons learned, new successes and genuine fulfillment.

If you’re one of these people, you’ve come to the right place.

Welcome Aboard,
