Trung is truly a visionary and the type of warrior I really like to feature on this podcast. Being a protector is very much about being tactically proficient but it has so much more to do with so many other things. Most specifically soft skills, mindset, your paradigm and your perspective will dictate your tactics on the battlefield of life and I don’t just mean in a gunfight.
If you don’t have the skills you simply will lose in so many more ways than you can imagine. Being a true protector and a true warrior these days requires that we understand all of these things. Trung is the type of leader that does because he’s had to leverage self-reliance, drive, purpose and discipline all throughout his life.
Growing up in the hood, working with the Rangers and on into the swat team in Chicago, the war has never stopped for him but has all made him a better man because of the way he’s chosen to deal with these things. Beyond all that, choosing to be an entrepreneur is one of the most challenging battles anyone can step into which is why most people simply don’t.
I’m looking forward to seeing all the amazing things he does with his next moves and I’m proud to see how far he’s come. It’s a genuine honor and privilege to spend this time with him during this episode and there is so much packed in here for everyone who will listen.
Protector by nature and by trade
