In this episode, Erick Rheam interviews Rise Above Chaos student Ken McCoy about his experience with the RAC system and how it motivated him to leave his job and start his own business.

Ken describes his experience going through RAC workshop and the vision exercise that planted the seed that would ultimately lead to the decision to leave his job two years later and embark on his new journey owning his own cybersecurity.

Ken shares the role his wife, Tepi, played during the process and what life is like now for him as he starts this new phase.
