Mike's portrait

Always look around

Mike Acord

Childminder

Mike’s words came from a belief that we spend too much of our lives with our eyes glued to the digital world. The internet suggests you can get what you want instantly, without any effort. Reality doesn’t work that way.

When Mike was a kid, advice came from family and peers rather than celebrities and social media influencers. "I gathered a lot of advice from peers and although I didn't want to hear it from them, my parents. They always gave the best advice, but I was just too stubborn to listen.”
