Welcome to the podcast, today I am joined by my buddy Micah Fink. Micah and I were sat next to each other at a dinner almost two years ago and hit it off talking about horses, hunting, and all kinds of random stuff shinanigans. A mutual friend had just done a killer video on Micah and his Heroes and Horses nonprofit called One Eighty Out. Micah is a former Navy Seal and complete badass, who really found his piece himself through horses and the cowboy lifestyle. Micah started Heroes and Horses as a way to give back and help other veterans overcome their struggles of PTSD and other demons they faced after war. Micah has a great mindset around overcoming your struggles and becoming stronger through your struggles of life. In this episode, we dive into Micah’s crazy story of being at ground zero on 9/11, becoming a seal, Traveling the remote jungle of the Amazon, finding his purpose in helping veterans, and crazy has horse wrecks. There was so much that we didn’t get to but an absolute great podcast either way. We are already planning a second episode, so let us know what you want to hear more of but I think Micah and I could BS for hours.
