Michael Mogill is a first-generation immigrant whose family arrived in the U.S. speaking little English, with only $500 to their name. After graduating with honors, Michael was accepted to several medical schools, but after shadowing doctors and surgeons, he realized that medicine just couldn't satisfy his entrepreneurial spirit.
Michael is best known for his company, Crisp. After finding his way to the legal industry by chance, his storytelling through video broke new ground, helping lawyers to differentiate their services in a crowded marketplace.
In this episode, I talk to Michael about growing up as an immigrant, why he stopped talking to his parents for a year and the toll that took, and why he believes that his work will never be done.
