Most importantly, he wants to be known as an individual who is concerned with home, families, and children. Mike wishes to be known as one dedicated to community, education and independence for all people. He is active in creating positive social change. The humility of Michael Segal personifies a desire to achieve success without accolades or pity. Michael Segal inspires everyone he meets to believe that lives can be changed and goals can be accomplished though hard work and positive thinking. His noteworthy accomplishments have been featured on national television, in newspapers, and magazine articles. Fantastic Frank, born Frank R. Johnson, is the epitome of perseverance. As a young man, he was a successful chemical engineer and entrepreneur. One day while he was at the height of enjoying success, everything changed irreversibly when he was trapped in a fire, brought out in a body bag and his life changed forever. As a result, he incurred a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). It was necessary for him to re-learn everything; including how to walk and talk. Now he is motivated to inspire millions. Every day Frank meets his challenges, and is fueled with a passion to help others with his engaging, creative manner which is awe inspiring to everyone he meets. Some of Fantastic Frank's significant accomplishments consist of publishing a comic book, ?The Young Explorers ©? and as a motivational speaker, he captivates and touches audiences like no other.
