Our next guest is David Richards, a life-strategist, #1 international best-selling author, and speaker on personal development. He spent his early childhood living in various parts of the United States and three years living on the island of Okinawa, Japan. After graduating university with a degree in English, he was commissioned an officer in the Marines. He served fifteen years on active duty before deciding to break out from the path his father and brother had followed in making the military a career and left the Marines to pursue life as a civilian. He joined Cisco Systems in 2006 and shortly thereafter discovered yoga. A year later, he taught his first yoga class. Realizing the fulfillment that came from helping others see their vision more clearly, he became a certified life coach. He works with individuals and organizations conducting training through private coaching engagements, speaking events, and workshops. We find out why David chose Penn State for his undergraduate experience, what was special about Sigma Tau Gamma, the lifelong lessons that he took from his experience at the US Marine Corps, more on mastering the internet and the power of hyper-focus, why yoga is so helpful, why we should hire a nutritionist and learn to cook, what college students should do if they want to do something in life but they aren’t good at it, and more about his book The Lighthouse Keeper: A Story of Mind Mastery. Enjoy!
