#46: RICH "BIG DADDY" SALGADO, CEO, Coastal Advisors Insurance Consultants

The incredible and charismatic Rich "Big Daddy" Salgado joins The Brink of Midnight Podcast. Big Daddy is a hub for greatness and positivity. His larger than life personality is contagious and you feel it immediately when he walks in the room. As the ultimate insurance consultant and risk manager in the world of sport, he has touched the lives of and helps protect professional athletes, especially in the NFL. Growing up, he became a self-proclaimed "misfit". However, intervention from his high school counselor ultimately led him to the University of Maryland where he played football. The mentorship from this beloved guidance counselor and his coaches "woke him up" to the significance of community and friendship, thus laying the foundation for how to cultivate and cherish quality relationships with people. These very qualities make Big Daddy one of the most well-known and respected people in sport - especially well known for his kindness, friendship, and loyalty. 

Surviving an aneurysm and brain surgery in 2008, and getting a remarkable second chance, he reminds us that "every day is an opportunity to get better."
