Remi Adeleke hit rock bottom more than once in his life. With each experience, he developed uncanny grit and perseverance. Remi was literally born into royalty in Nigeria. However, his family’s wealth was stripped by corrupt government officials and he had to start over in the Bronx with his mother and brother. Growing up in a tough neighborhood, he often found himself in some sketchy situations. He barely made it through high school, but his “never give up” attitude eventually led him to the United States Navy. Since then, he’s reached some unbelievable career milestones. In my interview with Remi, he spoke about those achievements and the lessons he learned along the way.

Episode 59: Nick Irving & Remi Adeleke - Police, Protests, and George Floyd
The last few weeks have been some trying times in our nation, to say the least. I wanted to bring two former guests on with as relevant of a perspective as I could think of to both shed some light from their perspective as well as give mine, while having a healthy and necessary discussion. This episode I had the honor of having former SEAL Remi Adeleke and former Army Ranger Nick Irving discuss all things race-related for our country. I hope that those who listen, do so you understand and not respond or confirm. Starting by respecting one another, and truly trying to understand the others perspective is the key to moving forward and coming together.
