Donald Thompson: Welcome to The Donald Thompson Podcast. Today, I have with me a good friend of mine. Business mentor and a successful business owner and entrepreneur, Mr. Grant Williard. Grant, welcome to the show.

Grant Williard: Hey, DT. it’s great to be on the show with my mentor.

You know, I, I think we’ve gotten to the place where we are just learning a lot from each other. Everytime we talk, we learn something from each other. So, it’s wonderful.

Donald Thompson: Well amen to that. And I will – I won’t argue with you on that, but, but I think it’s, it’s weighted one way and I, and I’m, I’m the recipient, so I’m the winner.

So, one of the things that I enjoy doing with our guests is why don’t you just take a few minutes and talk about you a little bit? Where are you, where are you from, brothers and sisters, married kids, and let the audience just get to know you as an individual. And then, we’re going to dig into sustainability, we’re going to dig into our environment and how these things impact business, how they impact diversity equity, inclusion, but let’s just take a few minutes and get to know Grant Williard.
