Resilience expert, double amputee.

People who ‘Stand Tall’ don’t ask Why Me? They ask What’s next?

Mike Rolls faced unthinkable adversity at the age of 18 and lived to tell the tale. Mike’s message “Amputate Dead Weight” is derived from his decision to remove his troublesome 2nd leg and become a double amputee, improving his life greatly and allowing him to reach greater heights!

Mike has used this experience as a springboard to personal and professional success. He challenges his clients to do the same by honestly addressing the things that prevent them from realizing their goals.

Instead of stressing about what is not in our life or business and trying desperately to ‘plug the gap’ as a quick fix, why not look at what is currently in our life that could be removed or simplified? Sometimes, we need to Ampuatate Dead Weight, prune back the dead wood in order to facilitate improvement, growth and success.
