A financial expert in Los Angeles, California, Mike (Michael) Ladge has developed relationships with clients across the major sports industry, including the MLB, NHL, NBA, and NFL. Alongside his career, Mike Ladge contributes to the Amer-I-Can Foundation.
Established in 1988 to encourage individual enhancement at an academic, social, and career level, Amer-I-Can owes its existence to Jim Brown who has been honored in the NFL Hall of Fame. The organization provides its training services to improve self-esteem and promote personal development across the nation.
To achieve its goals, Amer-I-Can employs a curriculum that includes 60 hours of training focused on life management and self-esteem. The curriculum incorporates three different teaching methodologies, consisting of dual sensory teaching, group discussion under the guidance of a facilitator, and repetition of training spaced out to solidify retention.
Throughout the course, students learn skills for approaching life in areas ranging from attitudes and habits to setting goals and making decisions. They also tackle issues related to the emotions, relationships, finance, and employment.
