Thanks to the folks at Mastercard, we were able to secure a pretty special interview with former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe, who now is a successful winemaker with his Washington-based winery Doubleback Winery.
Drew was in San Antonio keynoting at the ICBA Live on his experiences transitioning from the gridiron to the boardroom. So we sat down with him and talked about this transition, along with business lessons learned, why he chose the wine industry, and how patience and perseverance have played a huge role in his second career's success.
But we couldn't let Drew get away without talking a little football. So we asked him how his college and pro experience has helped him succeed in today's highly competitive winemaking world. Drew also commented how his situation with New England Patriots' Tom Brady is similar to Dallas Cowboys' Tony Romo and Dak Prescott.
Since he was with the Patriots for nine years, we also inquired on what traits have made this elite franchise so successful for so long -- especially in the era of salary caps and free agents. He added how company's can emulate this success to weather great change.
Overall, a great chat with Drew. We can't thank him enough for sparing a few minutes with us, and Mastercard, again, for making it happen. Enjoy!
