Fighting for your convictions is important, but peace is paramount. – Wes Moore
I recently had the honor of interviewing a leader that I truly admire: Wes Moore. On today’s podcast, you’ll get to hear our brief conversation. Consider it a warm up for what will take place when Wes Moore joins us in Kalamazoo on January 28 and takes the stage at Catalyst University!
If you don’t know Wes yet, here’s a little bit of his background:
Wes is a decorated combat veteran who served as a paratrooper, was a Captain in the US Army and did a tour in Afghanistan. He graduated from Valley Forge Military College and Johns Hopkins University. He also completed an MLitt in International Relations from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar.
He is the author of two New York Times bestselling books: The Other Wes Moore and The Work: My search for a life that matters. Both are excellent.
Today, he serves as the ceo of BridgeEdU – a national initiative focused on addressing college completion and career placement – especially in the freshman year of college. His personal mission is to help young people succeed and make the right choices through education.
I know you’ll enjoy our conversation today – but I know you’ll especially love hearing him speak at Catalyst University in January. And it is not too late to join us – you can check out our other speakers and register for your tickets at www.catalystuniversity.me!
Question: As we look ahead to 2016, what will you do to ensure you are truly living a life that matters? If you need a bit of inspiration, I highly encourage you to read one or both of Wes’ books.
