INTERSECTIONS - Season 1, Episode 2 - Pit Stop

Episode 2 - "Pit Stop"

Released On: October 12, 2021

From their growing business ventures to favorite sports cars, two Dallas-Fort Worth super-entrepreneurs, Chad Willis and Nick Boulle, discover their intersections at Eagles Canyon Raceway. The catch? One of our guests also happens to also be a decorated professional racing driver, and we conveniently budgeted enough time for some private track lessons in the McLaren 720s. Listen closely for tips on how to tackle the track and client-centric business like our guests.  

Featured in this episode are Nick Boulle (de Boulle Diamond & Jewelry & de Boulle Motorsports) and Chad Willis (Chief Investment Officer of Teamwork Commerce).
