SAM Bakhtiar interviews Mikey Taylor, professional skateboarder, entrepreneur and real estate investor. Mikey grew up firmly in the middle class in Thousand Oaks, California. He never really thought or worried about money or issues while he was growing up. He picked up a skateboard when he was 14, was consumed by it and never stopped. He says he enjoyed it so much because it was hard to learn and master. It was the first time that he could channel his addictive and hyper-competitive personality into a sport. Skating became a competition against himself. He pushed how good he could become and how far he could take the sport. He says that his obsession and drive were something he was born with. He harnessed it with his talent to become successful. He enjoyed skateboarding and knew he wanted to make money at it. But he also knew that skateboarding alone wouldn’t get him to the goal he created for himself. As he became more popular in the sport of skateboarding, he struggled with the culture. It was anti-establishment and success. He found it hard to keep positive in the negative environment and struggled. He finally had a wake-up moment and acknowledged he hated living his life like that. He started working on the person he wanted to be. He started meditating, setting goals, seeking guidance, working on his reactions and responses to his life. Now he is very active with family, business, planning and managing the life he wants to live.

Sam Bakhtiar is the Co-Founder of Camp Transformation Center that has impacted thousands of lives and grown to many locations with a vision of becoming a household name globally. From 1-1 personal training to expanding their offerings to group training which proved to be very affordable, they decided to expand into other areas and people liked the model so much that they decided to franchise this concept which proved to be successful. Being raised by a single mother, Sam immigrated from Iran to Pennsylvania, America after a series of bombings and fearing for their lives, his mother decided it was best to leave the country for a better life. After not making the cut for the basketball team, Sam went to the local boys club after his mother told him that he should start training and try out again the following year. However, Sam was fascinated by the people training at the gym and their physiques which inspired him to train to become a Champion Bodybuilder.
