As an alumnus of the United States Air Force Academy, Duke University School of Law, the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business and Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program, one could say that Rodney Bullard has seen a lot.

And knowing that for his service, the United States Attorney General presented him with the Department of Justice Director’s Award, that he was selected as a White House Fellow (the nation’s most prestigious public service Fellowship), that he was placed at NASA working directly for the NASA Administrator, and also, that he previously served at the Pentagon as a Congressional Legislative Liaison in the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force, you might definitely conclude that he's seen it all.

And in his professional life, indeed he has.

But he's also seen much more. Rodney has witnessed first hand the hardships and heartache that surrounds us every day. At one time or another, we all do. And he knows that many of us ask ourselves in trying to bring change in the world that we live in, "Where do I begin? How can I make a difference?"

Rodney's passion for serving others led him to write the book HEROES WANTED, a fantastic read that helps us all uncover what we have to offer, how we can demonstrate life-changing compassion to those around us, and much more.

We were blessed to be able to catch up with Rodney on our Wuerffel Trophy podcast. Take a listen on the Soundcloud link below or on one of the many podcast venues that are available including iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, Google Play and Spotify.

And after you listen, be sure to order your copy of HEROES WANTED and get started with your quest of being a hero.

The world needs you!


Why was the Wuerffel Trophy created?  We felt that there was a void in major college football awards. Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel put it best when he wrote, “The Wuerffel. It’s about time. There’s an award for the best quarterback, best running back, wide receiver, best linebacker, best center and even best kicker and punter. Why not one for the best human being?”
