Mike Ang: Pursuit of Happiness Across His Land of Dreams
We live in a volatile, complex world. It's easy to get stuck in our daily routines, and even easier to never start something or give up when things don’t go as planned. For one man, however, taking the road less traveled has been a journey of self-discovery and limitless creativity. Joining us in this episode is Mike Ang, a serial entrepreneur in the lifestyle and entertainment industry. Trained as a civil engineer, Mike never gave up pursuing his dreams in music, creative writing and entertainment. He is the Founder of Planet X, a successful international multi-media production and product marketing agency based in New York, currently launching an ultra-premium, zero-additive tequila brand, Tierra de Ensueño. As a published author of a children's book, Mike is a first-time screenwriter of a romantic comedy Asian Persuasion, produced and directed by Jhett Tolentino, a Tony and Grammy Award-winning Broadway producer. Through his various endeavors, Mike is also a tireless advocate of advancing culture and creating greater opportunities for youth, women, and minorities. During his spare time, Mike runs a successful manufacturing facility for rolling paper in the Philippines, still consults professionally as a civil engineer, and is also the producer of a Netflix documentary premiering in April 2023. Is there something else that Mike doesn't do? Where does the innate desire to create something out of nothing come from? TUNE IN now and be inspired!
