Serial and Multiple Parallel Entrepreneur & Dreamer Extraordinaire
The above video clip is from the movie Wall Street, Money Never Sleeps and it references the financial situation of September 2008.
Like most other people I got financially hammered in the systemic financial upset that took really big effect in September 2008. Just 3 months earlier and I was at the peak of my financial success and state of wealth, basically in a position in which I would ever have to worry about money again, but in just a few weeks in September and all that changed and when everything was tallied up at the end of the year, it was apparent that I now owed away more than I was worth.
Banks, who up till then had been my best “friends” always seeking to expand my portfolio and fund this with even more loans and debt, now turned their ugly faces and, quite frankly, proved the existence of some of the ugliest behavior and traits I have ever seen in human beings – all while they actually had full security for the debt I had to them. Goes to show…
Well, I got back on my feet. Made progress in shorter time than I have ever made progress before. In fact, I usually say that I made my first real fortune in 40 years and I had a lot of help. Then I lost it all in just 3 months. And finally made my second fortune in just 2 and a quarter years with more obstacles and with none of the help I had enjoyed the first time around.
From personal debt burdens in excess of $6 millions at its peak to becoming completely debt free in 2 years and 3 months. Wonderful experience being debt free. I hadn’t been debt free since I was 14 and now I was 43.
I learned a lot along the way. About business and investments. About human nature, not least the uglier sides to it. But most of all I learned many things about value. I learned the truth that money does not make you happy. I even learned that I could be happy having no money at all. Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather have a ton of money any day of the week and I do strive to make a lot money (much more than I ever have), cause let’s face it, it’s just so much nicer to have and not need than to need and not have.
Money brings you many things. It opens a lot of doors and affords you a greater lifestyle, comfort and security in my book, plus I really like the toys it can buy and the luxuries that you can give yourself and your family.
I really appreciate all that I learned from the horrible experience of losing it all and the huge crisis of 2008 – I just think the lesson was a bit expensive.
My ego-website that you are visiting here, shows you more than just my vanity and ego (although I do make fun of this to some extent). The website will tell you about the journey of my entrepreneurial life, what endeavors I enter or am engaged in. It tells about my successes, but also my failures. Not least will I over time share the insights that I gain from my experiences, so that the visitor may learn from my mistakes or get inspired from my luck and fortune when such occur.
It’s my hope that this website over time will become a source of inspiration and valuable knowledge. To improve upon it, I welcome your input, your stories and your experiences (good and bad), I will look forward to your questions and comments and I will be open to extrapolate when possible in areas that you may wish to know more of. All you need to do is to communicate and interact with me, by dropping me a note to info@mikkelpitzner and or connect with me on the various social platforms links to which you can find in the footer of the website. I also welcome you to comment on the blog posts when ever you have something good to add, a question or even a different view point.
Hi my name is Mikkel Pitzner and this is my personal Ego-Website.
Being an avid networker and actively engaging in many varied new projects and businesses all over the place all the time, I tend to meet a lot of people and invariably and as is quite natural some of these wants to know a little bit more about who this Mikkel Pitzner is that they just met. So just like I might well go home and Google them, they may well go and Google me. Google me and you are likely to find this site. Perhaps you are one of them?
Well, welcome to my website regardless of how you got here. It is in fact what I quite frankly call my personal ego-site. We all have an ego and I am no different, so that is why you will see my flashy cars or something else cool and I make no apologies for it. But do bear with me. I am really not such a hot shot, egotistical self centered person that needs to flash stuff around me all the time and I am not just into material goods and brand names, but actually likes to think I value other worldly matters to much higher extend and hold other traits to much higher esteem.
In fact what may have started out as completely just an ego-website filled with seemingly just self vanity stuff has changed into a site through which I wish to connect to other entrepreneurs, new as well as seasoned, young and old, from any industry across all borders. It’s my hope that we will establish a community together here, in which I can learn from you as much as I will leave with you the lessons I learn along the way from my experiences, from my successes, but certainly also from my failures.
So know that I ‘m truly honored that you are here and that I hope that you will browse around a little. Even better would be to hear from you and to receive your feedback on anything that gave you thoughts while visiting my site.
Thank you for your time and kind attention here – and do come back.
