On January 15th, 2009 Dave Sanderson's life was changed forever. That's when his "plane crash moment" happened, which was in fact a real plane crash.  Dave was one of the last people to exit the US Airways flight 1549, otherwise known as the "Miracle on the Hudson" and dive into the frigid waters.The interesting thing is Dave had such an amazing life before the crash as well.  As head of security for many years for Tony Robbins, Dave had access to learning from some of the most inspirational people on the planet.  He also contributes much of his success to his longtime mentor Bill, who gave him the 12 lessons that will change your life forever.  This also inspired Dave to write his third book titled "God Gives you the Lesson when You are Ready."What many people don't know is Dave still continues to be a very successful sales person and we get to talk about Sales, Supply Chain and of course we dial in on how his interpretation of the moment created a positive emotion to grow both personally and professionally.
