Today, we dive deep into how to apply this mindset to your business. PLUS, we discuss Jocko's philosophy on leading teams, managing risk, harnessing your ego, and foregoing comfort in pursuit of long-term goals like financial freedom. You'll also love getting to know Jocko the real estate investor! From buying a hoarder house filled with chicken bones to dividing his kids' bedrooms into "prison cell"-sized sleeping quarters, Jocko discusses how some sacrifice goes a long way toward creating financial freedom—even on a modest military salary.
