Wally Carmichael was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and grew up in a trailer park. His childhood and teen years were extremely formative, and we talk about that in the show. About a year after graduating HS, he joined the US Army as a Combat Medic, and spent 25 years on active duty. In that time, he traveled to 23 countries on five continents. During that time, he met and married his wife, with whom he shares three boys.
Wally has always been an entrepreneur at heart, having started many business ventures and learning from many people, in person or through their books, courses, videos and podcasts.
He’s lived a wonderful life with many ups and downs, always choosing to learn from the adversities and count his blessings. He’s at the point now in life where his biggest desire is to share his knowledge with other men and continue leveling up his life. Like we say in the Army “Constantly improve your foxhole“.
As he says, the 23 year old Wally certainly thought he had it all figured out because he knew everything. Of course he knows now he may never have it all figured out. But he’s enjoying the journey.
Now, go out and Live Your Life of Abundance and make sure you Pay It Forward.
