Best selling author and US Navy SEAL, Thom Shea discusses what life is like when you stop quitting and become the best version of yourself.


Aug 3, 2020

When you think of football, business and military probably doesn't pop into mind. However, parallels always exist in successful people and entities. Thom and Joseph were able to sit down with Tajh Boyd, former Clemson football quarterback to discuss how principles from football culture translate to business.

In this episode, Tajh talks about the lessons that he learned from playing football through high school and college. Having gone through trials and chaos, his story resonates and draws similarities to Thom's time in the Navy SEALs along with both Thom and Joseph's lessons from business.

Clemson's success from 2011 til now can be attributed not only to the changes in staff, but also changes made to the program's culture. Tajh gives a deep dive into how Clemson focused on the character and accountability of each football player just as much as plays and workouts. Just as in business and life, one of the biggest drivers of success is not having a sense of privilege, but rather working for everything you get.
