What does it take to be a successful Navy SEAL or entrepreneur? And how does one learn from the other? Surprisingly, entrepreneurs are no different from special operators. Just like in the Navy SEAL, entrepreneurship requires good leadership with the ability to plan, execute, and be methodical. Both require unyielding perseverance, regulation, and belief in the mission and vision.  Larry Yatch, a ten-year US Navy SEAL-turned-elite leadership strategist, has been helping senior executives optimize their personal growth and leadership strategy for superior performance. Through his book, How Leadership (Actually) Works: A Navy Seal’s Complete System For Coordinating Teams, he shares his six-pillar system that companies can use to achieve success. In this episode, Darius and Larry discuss the similarities and differences between special operators and entrepreneurs.
