In hour one, Brandon Webb a Former U.S. Navy Seal, CEO of Hurricane Group and Author of TOTAL FOCUS joined us on the phone to talk about his new book. One of my favorite quotes from the book; “As important as it is to act quickly, here is what is even more important: to act, period.” Yes!!!
Our second call on today’s show was with Bubba McDonald, a Commissioner on the Georgia Public Service Commission . He called in to talk about the negative impact a proposed tariff on foreign imports would have on Georgia.
