    Today, I’m joined by Kyle Thompson with Undaunted Life to talk about how to do just that. We discuss ignorance and initiative, why diversity alone doesn’t really mean much, what Kyle has dubbed, “the 11th Commandment,” why compromise isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and how to be the man your people need you to be.
