HANDS AND DAYLIGHT PODCAST

Business & Economics Podcasts >

America was forged. From nothing came everything we believe in. But the America our grandparents once knew is not the America we now know. Pete Roberts explores how our ancestors used their minds, hands and daylight to build this great nation. Have you forgotten your history? Have you forgotten that you and me, men and women are the ones who drive true change. Have you forgotten that our independence was won through the sacrifice of our ancestors. That what we have is the sum of their works. A movement of the people is the true power we have. But the greatest legacy they left is not the bridges and buildings, it's this thing we call Freedom. That unified we can move mountains. It's not business as usual, Pete builds parallels between the past, the present and the future. He discusses how to reconstruct the grit, values, and work ethic through his personal experiences and of those who have been there.
