In this episode, I interview Blake Hall Co-Founder and CEO of ID.me. Blake is a graduate of Vanderbilt University with a BS in Economics. He is a former US Army Officer who served as a reconnaissance platoon on over 450 combat patrols throughout Iraq without zero casualties within the platoon. Blake received two bronze stars, one for heroism in combat, and the other for exceptional performance targeting high level insurgent leadership. He has an MBA from Harvard Business School, has written articles for Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post among others.
