Paul Green is an airline pilot turned entrepreneur that discovered through the pandemic how his cockpit skills are needed now more than ever, even when he's not flying. Listen to JJRR 84 as Paul describes his personal turbulence at the start of the pandemic when his airline went belly up as the world shutdown. Not able to fly, a volunteering encounter provided the lightbulb moment Paul discovered his pilot training could be repurposed to stress management and wellness, spawning his new journey.
