From Custom Suits to College Hoodies: Len Hostetter S.O. What! Success Story

Never in a million years would I have thought that I would be able to call my boss’s boss’s boss my true friend. He (Len Hostetter) was my VP at FedEx with a manager and a director in between us.

But after I published my memoir, Len Hostetter heard about it and to my surprise, he asked to buy a copy. I nervously got him one, and he read it, fast. That was the beginning of him really knowing me and then opening himself up to me. We discovered that we had a lot in common.

As you’ll see in the interview, we have since shared a lot, laughed a lot, and cried (thankfully not a lot, but we have cried). And I couldn’t feel more blessed that he chose to be my friend long after he was my boss’s boss’s boss.

In this episode of S.O. What! Success Stories you’ll be inspired by a corporate executive who used his amazing experience and followed his passion to live his best life now.
