The Power of Gratitude:

GRATITUDE is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships!

This product line highlights the mentality to BE GREAT in all that you do; do it to the fullest of your ability. And it serves as a reminder to start and end each day in gratitude. 


What inspired me to launch Mike’D Up! Collection?

I’ve always been a proponent for spreading positivity and my podcast has been a perfect outlet to do that. The energy was flowing and I wanted to do more; something more direct; and the visions of swag with positive messages on them flooded my head.

I shared the idea with Samantha Rae Hughes; who is the CEO of MannaMade, a brand design company that creates maritime merch and promo products. She loved the idea and agreed to collaborate and the rest is history!

It doesn’t end there…I decided to GIVE BACK and donate a percentage of profit to deserving non-profit orgs and charities that were close to my heart. Currently I have picked the following orgs to support:

Hope Rises | Buffalo Gives | End It Movement | TWR Women of Hope | Exodus Cry | Fight The New Drug

So rock out your Mike’D Up! merch and feel great about the designs and messages AND also feel even better about supporting wonderful causes!

You know what to do…

Be Great & Be Grateful,
