Great podcast! I listened to this and was impressed at how Jack and Dan were able to take their life experiences, although different, and tie them together though Leadership! You can hear the passion they both have in their prospective careers! Thanks for your guys’ insight and you have given us all a blueprint on being a successful leader!

Law Enforcement Perspective

I’m not a podcast guy, however my life long friend was in this podcast so I listened and loved it. Not familiar with Jack Riggins, however I am a fan now. His insight on his leadership style is a style I try everyday. I only wish more people would listen to this type of material so they could understand a little better on how life is when you choose a career in public service. I agree totally with the statement made that you definitely have to work on and continuously educate yourself on how to be an effective leader. It’s not something given it’s definitely earned!! Also, so impressed with Dan’s insight during the entire podcast. Dan and I have been friends for basically my entire life. Dan and I are very similar people in several ways. However, Dan decided to educate himself and take on challenges head on. Very passionate and goal oriented guy with a never stop attitude!! I could hear Dans passion about sales, marketing and leadership in this podcast. He wants to be to best at anything and everything he does and you could definitely hear it in his voice. I’m truly honored to call him a friend and to have him to lean on for professional advice in all things leadership!!
