Cameron-Brooks Podcast Episode 11: Do Every Job Like It’s the Last One You Will Ever Have: Advice from a Former AF Officer

In this 11th episode of the Cameron-Brooks Podcast, Dan Allen, USAFA ’92 Graduate and former AF Finance Officer, shares what has made him successful for almost 20 years in business.

Dan is currently a Vice President at Grey Mountain Partners.  He made the transition from the AF to Procter & Gamble in 1997.  He also worked in various finance roles at GE and Eaton Corporation before Grey Mountain.

I particularly liked Dan’s advice, “Do every job like it’s the last one you’ll ever have.”  He also shares how he made the mistake of being too cocky early in his career, and how he used that lesson later in life to land his current role at Grey Mountain.

Lastly, Dan recommends everyone read the book What Every CEO Wants You to Know by Ram Charan.
