When Mr. Michael Bach Atlanta was asked what is life? In a recent interview he beautiful put the definition of life as “I am often left wondering about the true meaning of life but today standing as one the prominent faces of the world, I feel my life is blessed.

Then when Michael Bach Atlanta was asked that how he recalls his journey from a small town to becoming a business tycoon he said , “ As far as being a successful business man is concerned, I believe this is a journey, we all have different journeys and different demons to knock down in the market but what matters is that, how ethical is your attitude towards all the hideousness which comes along this walloping journey. Nothing in the life comes easy, you must be willing to grind and then only you can shine like a timeless diamond in eternity”.
The next question which brought multiple memories back to his life was how he would define his 17 year long stay at Bach Equity Partners he said, “When I first started my career as the Chief Executive Officer of the private equity firm, Bach Equity Partners, whose primary business model was facilitating takeovers of middle-market companies, it took me 17 good years to reach something magnificent as hedge fund manager at Scirage Capital. But I never regret those years because I know without that experience I would not have been the complete man. All those years I learned what entrepreneurship and market exactly was and how I have to deal with different people and make myself able enough to venture all their demands”.
One being asked about the importance of education he proudly declared that , “All the expertise and experience I gained at Bach Equity, I molded it all with strenuous efforts resulting in the invention of successful analysis system for stock trading strategies that generated exponential returns. This ingenious mathematical process is what compelled me to establish the hedge fund that is popularly known today as Scirage Capital. But this is surely a potent result of my ability to develop complex mathematical models and analytic acumen which was originated when I attended North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina, majoring in both Mechanical and Architectural Engineering.”

Business and marketing is a field where people are full of doubts and prejudices about the ethics and values of a successful business, many believe that you have to be extremely cunning and fox – headed to survive the pressure you undergo and hence lose the human traits. Well, I don’t think so, sadly this is morbid image is creating chaos among youth and is misleading them”.

When I see these children learning and growing I feel overwhelmed. Even when I am utterly busy with my monotonous life, I make sure that I visit them, spend time with them and my family because they are my true inspiration. These little joys of life by helping someone, being the reason behind someone’s smile, taking care of your family are real blessings. I feel obliged that I have got the chance and opportunity to help everyone around me cherishes their dream.”

Unless we believe that unity is everything, we cannot grow. To reach the zenith of success and achievement we must learn to grow together, helping each other and rest everything will fall into its place.”
