Interview #109 for my book was with Gavin de Becker.
Gavin wrote The Gift of Fear, which was the Nation’s #1 Bestseller, on the New York Times Bestseller List for seventeen weeks. He is the founder and owner of Gavin de Becker and Associates - the largest private security firm in the world protecting the world's most well known people and some of the greatest people you don't know. He created the risk assessment tool, MOSAIC which has been used to assess threats to State Governors and other political figures. Full bio here.
I am beyond grateful for Gavin to have spent just over an hour in the interview with me - we talked about the underlying virtues of a protector, updates he will be making to his iconic book, the Gift of Fear, how to survive deadly force encounters and where his motivation to be a protector comes from. Awesome interview!
If you have not read his book, you must. It is required reading for anyone who is serious about protecting themselves and their loved ones. You can grab a copy on Amazon here.
I am extremely excited and blessed that Gavin's wisdom could be added to the research for my new book, Anatomy of a Warrior™. This book contains the experience, research and thoughts from 109 of the greatest protectors alive today. I cannot wait to unleash this book to the world!
My unending gratitude is extended towards my Top Tier Clients who have provided me with the freedom to do these interviews and conduct this research. To all who have taken a course from me these past 3 years - thank you! Your contribution has allowed me to collect the information for this book which is going to help protect and preserve many lives. Arigatou Gozaimasu!
