Episode 27 - Say Yes and the Rest Will Follow
In this week’s episode, I talk with Robert “Bo” Brabo. Right out of high school, Bo joined the military and had an incredibly successful career serving our country, including working directly for Presidents Bush and Obama. He had the unique opportunity to follow mentors to amazing jobs he never would have imagined by “raising my hand once and the rest just followed” and help his fellow servicemen and women build amazing careers for themselves. But more importantly he helped grow future leaders, which he then turned into his second career once he retired from service.
