He takes his own advice as well, always remembering to be humble and alert for any opportunities that may pop up. But Michael’s business was never always smooth sailing and instantaneous. It had many bumps in the road early on, but he overcame each and every one of those obstacles and continually made his business better, even if it was through baby steps.
Patience is key, a summary of his inspirational words, for he also started small, with only 20 little chicks due to financial reasons. With hard work coupled with critical thinking and research, he made this limited resource into a huge and sustainable chicken farm.
