In Atlanta we had the pleasure of interviewing Michael Van Osch of thinktank:men, former VP at an Ad Agency turned entrepreneur with a little acting in between. Michael was let go in 2001 and he identifies that moment as the time he finally sat down and took a serious look at what was ‘right’ for him. With his Movember moustache in tact he talks about life after being let go from his job.
He asked himself two questions …
1.What am I passionate about?
2. What is in my wheel house?
Michael says it took a long time to figure out those two questions, but one thing in the back of his mind was a quiet thought “I want to be an actor”. So with no formal training he tried out for a show and landed a role in the one man show, Defending the Caveman. Which lead to some great learnings and another pivot a few years later where he launched thinktank:men.
