Like a modern Renaissance man, it is difficult to choose a domain where Michael Bloomberg has not tried his hand at. A banker, entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, billionaire, politician, activist, media mogul, avid pilot… and it is not a full list of accomplishments of just one single person.

“Life is too short to spend your time avoiding failure,”
