That Pitch Was A Gift...

The Official Coffee of Get Up Nation® 2020!
The Get Up Nation® Show is brought to you in partnership with Got Your Six Coffee, Get Up Nation’s Official Coffee Company of 2020. As the Creator and Host of Get Up Nation® Show, I am committed to developing and sustaining resilience in individuals, organizations, and societies. In Get Up Nation’s pursuit of resilience, how often do we gather around cups of coffee as we share our lives with our closest friends and family? After all, coffee is community right? How often does a cup of coffee help sustain us through long nights and wake us at dawn? How often does coffee keep us vigilant and productive fulfilling our duties and responsibilities, maximizing our focus and awareness as we pursue our passions? It is often a staple of returning us to normalcy after challenges have suddenly created a new normal for us after loss.
That’s why I partnered with Eric Hadley, the CEO/Founder of Got Your Six Coffee, a veteran committed to serving First Responders, Veterans, and their families through a variety of non-profit organizations. No stranger to adversity, Eric has fused necessity of coffee with his passion of public service. Learn more about Eric and his freshly roasted, award winning coffee at www.gotyoursixcoffee.com! You’re already purchasing coffee…why not empower your coffee with purpose? Why not purchase coffee that not only has your six but also has the backs of those who don a uniform of service for our communities and great country?
