Rich Cardona is a retired Marine aviator, former Amazon employee, media company owner, podcaster, and most importantly, a proud girl dad. Rich is very focused on optimizing life with efficiency, routine, and manifestation, which has led him to where he is today. Rich’s business focus is podcast production and video content for 7-8 figure CEOs, and his journey to building his business involved a lot of letting go of things that didn’t align with his aspirations and vision for his life.
