In this episode, Brock talks with Tom Sietsema.

Tom is a former marine who had an early interest in finance as well as M&A. We talk about his time at Columbia after his exit, why it's a great school for veterans particularly those interested in finance, and the importance of networking outside the veteran circle while at college. The finance industry has incredibly high barriers to entry and we talk through some of the best ways to tackle those. Tom is now the COO at Newbury Franklin Home Services. Tom discusses how better understanding his life priorities led him to pursue the autonomy that comes with the ETA (entrepreneurship through acquisition) space.
