Born-and-Bred Artist Trumps Economic Collapse

Born-and-Bred Artist Trumps Economic Collapse

Success Stories 0 Comments

ONTRAPORT client Micah Lamar lives in a trailer. But it’s no ordinary trailer: It’s not shrouded in overgrowth adjacent a lonely highway. It doesn’t imply defeat or glory days gone by–quite the opposite, in fact. Micah’s trailer sits triumphant, perched on the Santa Barbara hillside, a temporary dwelling pending construction of his dream home overlooking the American Riviera.

Micah, an artist by nature, turned his dire financial situation around by mastering the stock trade. During the recent devastating economic recession this young glassblower rejected the dichotomy of art versus business and grew an organization and thriving community of stock traders… while the world of entrepreneurs fell to its knees.  His story is truly a testament to resurgence in times of devastating economic recession.
