    Ep 22 - General Mark Hertling, Lieutenant General, US Army (retired)

    On this episode, I’ve got General Mark Hertling who shares lessons from his almost 40 years of service in the military. General Hertling's experience started at the U.S. Military Academy in 1975 and since then has seen him move up the ranks with service with intergovernmental and coalition initiatives, working with the Executive and Legislative brands of the US Government and many foreign nations. He also spent over 36 months in combat and commanded at every level from platoon to field army. His honors and recognitions are just incredible and I’m so excited for you to hear our conversation and the leadership lessons he shared on this podcast.

    Ep 21 - Andrei Cherny, CEO of Aspiration

    For this episode of Army of Gamechangers, I spoke with Aspiration CEO Andrei Cherny. Andrei’s resume spans industries and positions which include author, business consultant, prosecutor, Navy reserve officer, and White House aide. Clearly, Andrei hasn’t had a career, he’s had many careers.

    Andrei puts this belief in practice as the CEO of Aspiration, an investment firm voted one of Fast Company’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies 2018 for social good. As Andrei says, when leaders set a clear vision as well as communicate expectations, they’re setting their people up for success down the line.

A Must Listen for Leaders

What I like the most about the Army of Game Changers is that you can take actionable things to immediately start doing in your career or your life. All of the guests bring down to earth wisdom that feels attainable and isn’t one of those things that you feel that you could never do. Vipe really keeps the conversations relevant and to the point, so I definitely recommend taking 15 minutes per week to listen to these episodes. They will change your life by chopping down the learning curve of leadership.

Excellent and inspiring!

Vipe and guests have similar keys for success such as understanding the importance of education, sticking to goals and maintaining passion about what they do but their perspectives are so different which makes this podcast extremely engaging. Time well spent!
