John Ramstead has gone through the wringer. He was a successful Navy fighter pilot only to have his career derailed by a softball injury shortly after getting his orders to go to Top Gun. In 2000, he was the co-founder of a tech company and worth $17M, only to have the dot-com bubble burst and lose it all. Then in 2011, he was a very successful financial advisor only to have a horse accident nearly kill him and leave him with a traumatic brain injury that ruined that career and plans for politics.

On this edition of the Holy Smokes Podcast, Steve Reiter and Holy Smokes founder, Kay Hiramine talk with John about all that AND how John developed a positive mindset that is an example to everyone that knows him.
