Peter Mikulak was a contractor with a big dream of becoming an artist. His company did well, until the global recession hit – something that lead the crash of the housing market back in 2009. The company he worked for went out of business, and he had nearly lost everything.
Having his back behind the wall, Peter then sold his house and ‘must’ pursue his career as an artist – starting from the street, literally: He was homeless and worked hard to get his street art noticed. He finally made it.
His turning point: Marilyn Monroe.
The takeaway from Peter: Success is a choice. If you focus and put all of your energy toward something, eventually you going to succeed.
