Mike the Milkman Delivers His Three Keys to Success!

I’m a trial lawyer, and when I go to court, I’m usually surrounded by a lot of really smart people. For the most part, the judges are brilliant, and opposing counsel usually brings their “A” game.

But here’s the deal; despite being around all these bright people day in and day out, none of them come close to being as smart as my father-in-law. His name is Mike, and he’s a retired milkman.

None of them had any banking experience, and I still remember Mike sitting on the living room floor playing around with different bank logo designs, with stacks of banking regulations and documents stacked beside him for review. As things turned out, the bank thrived and was eventually sold to a large national banking institution for a very nice profit.

Mike’s Three Keys To Success

Before I married his daughter, Mike asked me if I had my priorities in the right order. The look I gave him must not have been very reassuring because he immediately added, “Mitch, here’s what you need to do. Here are my three keys to success…
