Apr 23, 2021 | 10X Vets, USNA

Ed Henkler (USNA ‘78) is the Founder of The Blind Guide, a company that helps people who have lost their vision shift their goals from surviving to thriving by offering employment initiatives, assistive technologies, and other resources.   

In this episode, Ed and I discuss:

  • A career shift in his 50s that led him to pursue his passion to help the blind community
  • The networking mistakes he made early in his career and his belief that networking is about giving back to others
  • How the lessons he learned at the Naval Academy and during his time in the Navy are helping him today in the business world
