1. MickeyTravels, LLC with Greg Antonelle, Episode #161 Larry Sprung, Mitlin Financial, Greg Antonelle 33:11

Greg Antonelle spent twenty years in the staffing/executive recruiting industry before becoming fully immersed in the travel industry. He and his wife Elyssa started MickeyTravels, LLC in January 2011. MickeyTravels was initially born out of his wife’s passion for Disney.

Greg started MickeyBlog.com five years ago to be the marketing arm of MickeyTravels. It has grown into a leading Disney blog and the engine for their travel business. In 2019, they took the plunge and moved to Florida. They now live a few miles behind Magic Kingdom and see the fireworks nightly from their backyard. 

Moving to Florida allowed them to rapidly grow their business. They are now the only travel agency in the world that is Diamond EarMarked, Disney-Only (they only book Disney vacations), and 100% Free. They never charge clients any fees. Instead, they get paid directly by Disney. Listen in for some great takeaways about building a business around something you’re passionate about.

Lawrence “Larry” Sprung, CFP® is a husband, father, entrepreneur and mental health advocate.

Larry is the author of the Amazon Bestselling book “Financial Planning Made Personal” and the also host of the Mitlin Money Mindset™ a podcast that reminds you to ask yourself “What did you do today that brought you joy?®”

In 2004 he founded Mitlin Financial, Inc. naming the firm memory of Larry’s wife’s grandfather, Mitchell, and his mother, Linda. During his career, Larry has found that a lot of industry terms and concepts can seem confusing to outsiders. That’s why he works with the families he serves to break down complex financial topics into easy-to-understand concepts.

In recognition of Larry’s significant contributions to his profession, he has received quite a few awards. In 2021, Larry was named to the Investopedia 100 Top Advisors in 2021 and was even more humbled to make their Top Ten list for 2022.

Outside the office, one of Larry’s greatest passions is raising awareness for mental health. He spent over 12 years serving on the National Board of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and sits on its financial and investment committees. With his wife, Denise, he has raised more than $1.7 million for the organization through the Keith Milano Memorial Fund. The fund was created in memory of his brother-in-law.

Larry values his family tremendously and his desire to do right by his wife and two sons drives who he is in and out of the office.
