Mickey is a great entrepreneur because he has always been able to clearly see the forest from the trees and use his amazing "EQ" to connect ... , motivate, and collaborate with others that share his strategic vision. Besides being gregarious and energetic, Mickey is also incredibly intelligent, driven, and resourceful and is able to draw upon a vast and diverse set of personal and professional experiences to solve any challenge that an organization faces.
