Episode 17: Wayne McCullough

Gut and Execution

Wayne McCullough and I have had the opportunity to know each other for a few years now through different relationships. He’s been a great resource and mentor for me.

Wayne is the President and Managing Partner at Benchmark Private Wealth Management where he helps clients work through difficult financial situations and take care of their money.

The conversations we get into today are all about having an impact on your fellow man. We talk about how Wayne has such a heart for his community and how he helps those men be better husbands, fathers and leaders in their city. There’s so much great stuff in this episode you can apply to your own life. Enjoy!
