I am pumped to bring you guys this episode. Paul Thacker is an all around badass! Thacker has set many world record distance jumps on a snowmobile and has competed in X-Games freestyle. In this podcast Paul shares his crazy story of going from a successful banker to world class snowmobile rider, and even being a stunt double in a major film. Paul’s story took a major turn when he ended becoming paralyzed in a freak accident. To me this is where Paul’s true character shines through. Since his accident, Paul accomplished so much. Not only does he continue to fish even more than ever but Paul went on to found his own non profit and help others find purpose in the outdoors.
I really enjoyed chatting with Paul, and I hope you all enjoy this podcast as well. Please give this podcast a share with anyone else who needs to hear it.
