Book Tour: Hustle With Heart by Mike Thorne @MikeTho66085132 @RABTBookTours @mkwebsiteandseo

Unlocking Self-Worth Through Personal Trust Communities


Nonfiction / Self-Help

Date Published: September 7, 2022

Publisher: MindStir Media

Do you consider where you've been, and where you want to go? And who do you call on for guidance? After learning he was adopted out of the blue, Mike Thorne struggled to find his place in the world, plagued by perfectionism and fears of abandonment that followed him into adulthood.

But he identified a path for himself through sports, along with two key concepts that helped him transform a better way forward: that we need to Build, Belong, and Believe to make progress effectively, and that we must have others on our journey. People we can rely on to hold us accountable and for support-a Personal Trust Community. With his story, Mike teaches readers of all ages how to learn from his experiences and reach their North Star by employing the tools he built along the way. He's proof that by hustling with heart on the field and beyond, we can transform and thrive at home and work.


Interview with Mike Thorne

Tell us about your book? Do you consider where you’ve been, and where you want to go? And who do you call on for guidance?

I am sharing my story and hope it resonates with you

What is the PRIMARY benefit, above all others, that your potential reader will gain from reading this book?

If you want to live the life you were intended to and not be held back by a lived experience this book is for you.

If you had to compare this book to any other book out there, which book would it be?

I love fables with stories that move you and allow you to experience the life of the person in the story. Books written by Mitch Album where you learn lessons just reading the story. This book is an actual person, me, who shares the power of belonging, building, and believing in your ultimate success.

Hundreds of thousands of books come out every year. Why should someone buy THIS book?

A perspective from someone who was put up for adoption at birth feeling abandoned, rising to a CEO, being fired, and then building my life over again and sharing it with others.

Who is your target audience?

35-54 year old, with kids or at least a partner/spouse, wants to live a more purposeful life, has had some challenges along the way and needs help getting unstuck.

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage?

Being told at 9 that I was adopted shattered my sense of belonging and sports became my outlet. I have lived in 9 states, moved 25 times, married for 32+ years and have 3 grown daughters. Worked in multiple industries and have seen 1000’s of people not bringing their full self to life. I believe when you know your story and share it with the world people show up in your life.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since publishing your work?

People coming up to me and sharing that my story has inspired them to chase their dreams.

How would you describe your writing style?


Are your characters pure fiction, or did you draw from people you know?

All real people

What do you hope to accomplish with your book other than selling it?

Help people live a more fulfilling life and be a better friend, business leader, husband/wife, and community leader.
