Jeb Banner: “You’re going to be okay.”

“You’re going to be okay.” 

Episode Description:
Jeb Banner, CEO of Boardable, joins the show for a conversation about entrepreneurship, what it means to lead without manipulation, and why he stood in the gap for host Derrin Slack. 

How would you react if all you had worked for evaporated in a matter of days? Prior to Boardable, Jeb had started another business, and through sudden and painful circumstances he found himself out of the company wondering how he was going to take care of his growing family. 

Yet, in his darkest moment, someone stood in the gap for him assuring him, “You’re going to be ok.” Those words gave Jeb the courage to press on through the challenge, laying the groundwork to help him stand in the gap for others.
