Dan Luna

Retired Navy SEAL, Leadership Coach & Consultant, SEAL Future Foundation Ambassador

How is it humanly possible to endure multiple explosions in very close proximity in a short amount of time, lose some of your closest friends in battle, and deal with extreme stress, severe depression, and marital challenges simultaneously?

While mental blow after mental blow can result in the repercussions of triggering serious mental challenges, Dan Luna eventually overcame all of it with help from others and a never quit attitude.

Dan is also a former instructor for the Naval Academy as well as a recognized leadership speaker.

In this powerful conversation we dive into topics such as the warrior mindset, leadership, confidence, outlook for tomorrow, courage and much more.
