Korey Shaffer is the founder of Til Valhalla Project, an impactful 8-figure brand that brings apparel honoring fallen heroes. His brand donates a minimum of 20% of their proceeds to provide support and therapy to struggling veterans. They also anonymously honor fallen heroes through producing custom, handmade plaques delivered by their VIP customers. Today Korey will share his full story, from serving in the U.S. Marine Corps in Afghanistan, to going back to America and starting his own business. All this and much more, up next.
