It was during that time that Mike was recruited by several insurance companies and eventually (1985) signed on as an insurance agent.

After 3 years as an insurance agent, Mike established himself as an independent agent and simultaneously worked as a Manager for the Canadian subsidiary of a major international insurance company. After several years, Mike left that management role to focus entirely on financial planning.
