Mike Spillman's Personal bio:

Mike currently lives in beautiful Mountain View, Arkansas with his wife of 27 years, Janan, and their son, Jordan who will be a High School Senior for the 2009-2010 school year. He also has two other sons that are married: Jacob (age 25) and his wife, Beth live in Houston and Jeremy (age 22) and his wife, Cassidy live in Fort Worth. Mike and his wife love spending time on his motorcycle traveling as often as possible.

Mike has served as a minister for most of his adult life with most of those years spent in youth ministry - working with teens and pre-teens. He has always had a heart for young people and still thrives on their energy and interaction. In connection with this, Mike has a book that will soon be published entitled, "10 Ways to IMPACT Your Child's Future NOW! (and yours too!)" as well as a CD of children's stories all with positive thinking themes entitled, "Tales of the Pc4 (Positive Crew 4)".

 

Currently, Mike is also involved in producing a daily podcast (M-F) that is focused on sharing his positive ideas and thoughts as well as hosting his own blog with similiar thoughts and ideas. Although there is no way to know where all of his listeners are from, he has had visitors from Australia, Belize, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Djibouti, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Fui, Germany, Ghana, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Ireland, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Montenegro, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Philippines, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Serbia, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States (over 228 cities), Vanuatu and this list grows weekly.


His listeners have helped Mike achieve a consistent ranking in the top 100 list on iTunes within the first month of his podcast being made public. At this point (only 2 months into production) the podcast has reached as high as number 36.

 

Mike's goal is to do all that he can to help remove the negative influences that are so prevelant around us and to provide positive encouragement instead.

 

History/Goals for F.Y.U.

Mike attended a seminar in Dallas, TX. in the summer of 2008 that helped him to start brainstorming how to best approach getting his positive message out for the benefit of others. He returned home from that seminar excited and shared the information with his wife, Janan and son, Jordan. As they all brainstormed together, Jordan began reading the Napoleon Hill classic "Think & Grow Rich" and highlighted several passages in the book, including the saying "No one ever is defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality". The idea was born to put this quote on a t-shirt and to spread the message thorough this venue. Jordan also came up with the website name of "Prepare The Future You" (www.preparethefutureyou.com)

 

The idea of "preparing the future you" went right along with Mike's desire to reach out to young people in this effort as well and the idea of "Future You University" first sprang out of this seed of thought. "What if" Mike thought, "we could host either a weekend or week-long session for teens all focused on this type of material and call it Future You University?" Thus, the name, "Future You University" was born.

 

This original idea is still part of the future goals of what Mike is doing but, he decided to use this name as an "umbrella" for everything that he is focusing on in this area. The catch phrase of, "Your greatest education takes place on the campus of your mind" helps emphasize this very important point and Mike's emphasis of "teaching" people how to think in such a way as to improve their lives.

 

Mike is in the process of getting his book published and his CD's for children available as well as developing his own seminars to share this message to as many as possible.
