In this episode, I interview Phillip Hatfield, author of “Carried by Angels.” He is a man with an amazing story. When Phillip’s grades and attendance weren’t up to scratch in his sophomore year of college he got kicked out and started to work at Church’s Chicken. Phillip recognized this opportunity and worked his way up the corporate ladder in the business world. In 2008 after a tragic accident Phillip lost his left leg and is now an amputee. In our conversation we discuss lessons in life, business and how Phillip personally learned how to succeed against all odds and turn businesses around 180 degrees.
