The Human WakeUp Call

A little over a decade ago, Mike Jaffe was the unhappy employee of a Fortune 500 company in New York. One morning, he decided that he would get to work 20 minutes later than usual so that he could spend some precious extra time with his family. This decision saved his life — his office was on the 96th floor of the World Trade Center, and the morning was Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001.

Jaffe responded by leaving the corporate world behind. He founded The Human WakeUp Call,a business and personal leadership coaching company, and he says that for the first time he loves his work. In 2011 he released the book, “Wake Up! Your Life is Calling: Why Settle for Fine When So Much More is Possible?”
