Join Dustin and Lonnie for a candid talk on life & purpose and hear about the people and experiences that molded him to lead and inspire others. As Lonnie says, “When I was just a kid, I remember hearing the cheers for my pro-wrestling dad rise from the stands. But every time he stepped out of the ring, he’d shake off his Moondog Mayne persona to connect with his fans on a human level. After he passed away, I spent my summers traveling with my uncle who was a CEO “turnaround guy” and my personal business mentor … and watched him get the best out of others by treating them like people first and employees or customers second.”
