Brandon Webb, a former U.S. Navy SEAL, author, digital media entrepreneur and CEO of Force12 Media, a content group that runs web sites and publishes books geared toward Special Operations and men's lifestyle, recently sat down with Entrepreneur for a far-reaching interview about his transition from decorated sniper to entrepreneur. In part one of this interview, he discusses a conversation he had at a shooting range that transformed his approach to business and put him on the path to success.

Since leaving the SEALs, Webb has been a regular contributing expert for the likes of ABC's Good Morning America, NBC's Today Show, Fox News Channel, CNN, the BBC, SIRIUS XM, MSNBC and The New York Times. He has written several bestselling books, including The Red Circle and The Power of Thought: Core Principles to Overcome Adversity and Achieve Success. He is an active member of the Entrepreneurs Organization New York (EONY) and can regularly be found in the air in one of his planes pulling maneuvers designed to scare the hell out of his passengers.
