Episode 3 of The Wisdom Chain Podcast: Laurel Nelson on the Code of the West

Episode 3 of The Wisdom Chain Podcast: Laurel Nelson on the Code of the West

In the stairwell of the Life Skills Center, our headquarters in Medora, a lovely mural greets employees and guests:

It displays “The Code of the West,” a set of ten guidelines for living inspired by the “cowboy ethics” of the Wild West. But there’s a lot that can be said for each of these tenets—much more than could fit on a wall!

So we hope you enjoy the third episode of The Wisdom Chain Podcast, a presentation by entrepreneur and TRMF Board of Directors member Laurel Nelson. It’s all about the Code of the West, and how we can apply it to our lives at work and at home.
