Business with Purpose Podcast EP 86: Dave Sanderson, Survivor of "The Miracle on the Hudson"

Whether you want to admit it or not, you have fears. We all do. Maybe its a fear of bees or being chased in an alley by a masked man (okay, so those are my fears), or maybe it’s a fear of failure… or maybe it’s a fear or public speaking or getting rejected. Or maybe it’s a larger fear like being in fire or a plane crash… The thing is, we can’t let those fears take hold of our lives. We can’t let those fears dictate how we operate or how we interact with others… sometimes we have to take control of our fears and show those fears who’s boss. And I don’t want to start this off making you sad or feel uneasy… but let’s just say, for a moment, one of your worst fears came true? What if? What would you do? Honestly? How would you react? Would you let the fear consume you, or would you fight back? Would you push the fear out? Would you tell the fear to shove it and stick it where the sun don’t shine? Would you use that fear to fuel you to do something greater than you could have ever imagined? Would you use that fear to impact - or even SAVE - the lives of others? 

My guest this week is Dave Sanderson… Today’s conversation is going to blow. you. away. Dave is an inspirational survivor, author and former head of security for THE Tony Robbins. His thoughts on leadership, business & survival have made him an internationally sought-out speaker. But, when US Airways Flight 1549, or “The Miracle on the Hudson,” went into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, Dave Sanderson knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be. The last passenger off the back of the plane on that fateful day, he was largely responsible for the well-being and safety of others, risking his own life in frigid water to help other passengers off the plane. Dave shares his story with you today and it is absolutely incredible. This is honestly one of my favorite episodes to date and you are going to love it.
