Many people accept obstacles as their lot in life. Alden is one of those people who sees obstacles as a challenge to overcome. At the age of twelve, he was told to stay away from sports because of childhood asthma. Even at this young age, he took control and pushed through his asthma to achieve significant goals in academics, competitive sports, military challenges, business, and philanthropic endeavors.
His achievements include:
- Becoming a recognized rower nationally—as a gold medalist in the Olympic Festival,
- Captain of freshman and varsity teams during training at the US Naval Academy.
- Becoming a Navy SEAL—serving as platoon commander three times.
- Becoming an entrepreneur and leading his first company to $90 M in sales in three years.
What is his Secret? Persistence! He learned that becoming totally committed to driving change every day could achieve much better outcomes.
