Sean: Today I’m with Chad Atkins, one of my business partners. Chad had quite a remarkable move from wholesaler to advisor as we documented in Episode 2 of the podcast.

Gerald had a long and distinguished career at the Kroger company, ending up as the district manager at the end of his time there when he finally decided it was time to try something different.
