Alden Mills

San Francisco, CA

Bio

Alden Mills first started taking control of his life at age twelve—when his doctor told him to learn chess because his childhood asthma would keep him from playing sports. His mother stepped in, telling Alden that he should never let someone else decide his future.

Alden’s first personal goal was to conquer asthma. He then went on to achieve extraordinary things in sports, academics, military service, business, and philanthropy.

Alden became a nationally-recognized rower—as a gold medalist in the Olympic Festival, then as Captain of the freshman and varsity teams at the US Naval Academy. Alden became a Navy SEAL—and served as platoon commander no less than three times. Alden also became an entrepreneur, leading his first company to $90 million in sales in just three years.

How did he do it? Through persistence… That’s right, Alden was fully committed to achieving better outcomes every day. He was particularly persistent about learning from his failures.
