Um, I'm here with Michael Brian, author of shifts creating better tomorrows, winning at work and life. And, uh, Mike, first of all, thanks for joining me for Nice disbursed out in the wild. That episode is going to be something new for both of us. I'm glad we're here. We both happen to be Jersey guys, so thanks for joining me. For everybody that doesn't know you, as I'm holding up the book here for everybody to see that are watching on video, you go grab a copy of shift at Amazon or your favorite bookstore. Mike, tell us a little bit about your deal and then what's your, what's your up to today? And we'll get into backstory a little bit, but, uh, what's your jam today besides being an author?

There was no facebook, there was no linkedin, there was no twitter, there was no youtube, there was, there was no way to listen to music except your Sony Diskman, which I had mentioned your head one, two. I think I still got it somewhere. Yeah. So I, uh, back then I was out at a company meeting in New Mexico and I brought my bike out. I've always been an avid cyclist and I decided to bring my bike out across New Mexico, off my list of skates. Michael O'Brien: 02:27 I wanted to ride my bike again, avoid the hotel gym, get some outside air, the whole thing. And uh, so I was doing loops around the hotel property before my meeting.
