Episode #59 - Hard Learned Lessons in Resilience and Self-Reliance with Former Green Beret Kevin Flike

Episode #59 Summary:

Kevin's greatest challenge in life came when doctors told him  that he would never run again and would only be able to walk with the assistance of a leg brace. After sustaining a gunshot wound to the abdomen during combat operations in Afghanistan, his eft leg was paralyzed. It took great perseverance and numerous surgeries, but he overcame his injuries and gained admittance to MIT Sloan and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. He spent three years on concurrent master’s degrees and was proud to earn both an MBA and an MPA in 2016.

At Goldman Sachs he had been exposed to the world of finance, markets and business development. This experience has complimented the skills he honed in the Army: leading and developing teams, logistics and supply chain.He is at his best working with mission driven individuals, teams and organizations to help them achieve their goals. 

Over six years after being told he would never run again, he is training for a half-marathon. Since his injury, he has travelled the country telling his story of resilience and courage because an experience is worth nothing unless you share it. Everyday he strives to be the best version of himself and is ready to accept new challenges.
