Episode #162- Mike Nagel-Medical Device CEO-Ironman-Ultra Runner
Mike is a med device veteran who brings more than 30 years of sales and marketing experience in the medical device industry, currently serves as President and CEO Vomaris Innovations.
Outside of work, mike found a passion for endurance athletics. He completed seven Ironman Triathlons, twelve marathons, and a first ultra 50-mile. He finds that training for endurance sports is similar to business – you start with the end in mind. But perhaps the most critical elements are the incremental steps you must take on a daily basis to get to that end goal. In a sense, you get used to being “comfortable being uncomfortable”, which builds your resilience. I find this helps me in business to not be overwhelmed with the sometimes perceived enormity of various tasks. I know I just need to get things done, one step at a time.
