Hi, Team!

Today I’m sharing a snippet from one of my guest posts on another blog (Making Momentum). Scott, who runs the site, reached out with an opportunity for me to be interviewed and to share my story with his readers.

And I’ll just say that going through this process was a blast! Scott didn’t pull any punches with his questions and I made every effort to answer fully and to the best of my ability. Much of these topics haven’t been covered on my site… Yet.

But I am taking the inspiration and some of the content to rework my “About Mike” page. So, needless to say, Scott’s interview made a significant impression on me.

Below is a short snippet, but if you want the full 4,000+ word experience, please click over to Scott’s site. I’ll be monitoring the comments on the Making Momentum interview and on this post, so feel free to let me know your thoughts. I’m interested to see any feedback – don’t hold back!

Here we go.

Well, let’s get the interview going, grab a drink and kick back to read this. Here is Momentum Series: MikedUp Blog – Family Business, Finances & Fitness.



Hello all! I’m Mike, a 32-year-old married (Monica) dad (Clara) that currently runs our family business, works as a Forensic Scientist for my day job, and blogs when I make the time. We live in Columbus, Ohio where it’s frequent that you’ll find us at a nearby park or sand volleyball court.

One day – long, long ago (2.5 years ago) – before owning a business had been in our minds and shortly after our daughter was born, I got bored at work. And as a means for creative output and mental stimulation, I started writing for fun.

I had always been a personal finance nerd, I work out 4-7 days per week, and I have a ton of (what I think are) hilarious family stories to share, so MikedUp Blog started from there. Fitness, Finance, and Family were my original topics, but as I’ve tried to listen to my readers and help solve their problems better, I’ve added a bit of my own story into the mix.

Whether it’s an entrepreneur trying to solve business problems, stay in shape, navigate intimate personal relationships, or slash the grocery bill – it’s all on the table at MikedUp Blog. 4 out of every 5 posts are aimed at adding some value to the readers life, while good ‘ole #5 is a meaningless attempt at humor…based on true events.

That’s all for here. Please click here to read the full interview. Thanks in advance!
