In chapter three of my book, "From CO to CEO: A Practical Guide for Transitioning from Military to Industry Leadership," I share about the things I wish I knew back when. In this podcast, you'll hear a story about when I selected my Eagle Scout project as a 15-year-old and the advice my Scout Master gave me. Even though I didn't fully understand what he meant at the time, I understood after the project and it's something that still resonates with me today. The lessons I lay out in this chapter changed my view of humanity, specifically when it comes to the transition from military to industry.
