Zerbin Singleton Pilot, Marine Officer, African American: How to Beat the Odds and Help Others Along the Way
Play episode · 1 hr 13 min

Helicopter Pilot, Marine Officer, Aeronautical Engineer, Christian, African-American, mentor, speaker. All these words describe Zerbin Singleton.  He describes how he became something other than a statistic, overcame his own troubled childhood, and he now reaches out to at risk youth.  His summaries of how to find common ground with nearly anyone, and lead them out of risky circumstances provided me a challenging framework for how to make it better 1:1.
