⁣Chris Cottrell shares the fascinating story of his journey from his time as a former intelligence officer in the United States Army to becoming the co-founder of the upscale menswear brand Shepherds.

The discussion weaves together the importance of faith, family, and community in men's lives, and how intentional dressing can convey professionalism and self-respect. Chris discusses the impact of attire on behavior and mindset, and the connection between personal expression, faith, and identity. This episode is a great place to gain leadership insights, learn about evangelism, and discover the power of genuine connections.

Chris is a Founding Partner at Verde Peak Partners, where he works closely with entrepreneurs and small business owners to exit their businesses while preserving their legacy and team. Chris is also a cofounder of Shepherd's, a made-to-measure men's suiting company. He holds an MPA from Harvard Kennedy School, an MBA at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business where he was awarded one of two full scholarships and won the international Venture Capital Investment Competition, and a BS in Political Science at Arizona State University. Chris also serves as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army Reserve and deployed with U.S. Special Operations Command, earning a Bronze Star.

On Blessed are the Joke Makers, Chris joins the Dudes as they take on the persona of a new parent to address the prompt, “Seminarians talk about _____ after class.”

The TBD question of the day - What are examples of times when you or others have been able to successfully evangelize in everyday life?

The show ends in a unique fashion – Chris and Paul pick a song to sing while Jeff and Nick engage in a winner-take-all arm-wrestling match.
