Today's Guest(s)

Bruce Sheridan embraces mystery. Raised in Union City,  New Jersey, the fourth child in a family of eight, his life was never boring.  Union City is the home of the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel which connects  New Jersey to New York City. It’s a tough town. The author estimates he had  participated in six hundred fights by the time he graduated from high school.

In 1977, Bruce headed off to Georgia Tech to study  engineering. He was on the Men’s Varsity track team and ran the 110M high  hurdles and the 400M intermediate hurdles. In 1988, he was a member of the US  Virgin Islands Olympic Sailing Team.

With degree in hand, he headed to Miami, Florida in  1981. As an engineer for Florida Power and Light, he designed and built the  power grid that supplies electricity to residential and commercial  enterprises. Attending graduate school at night, he earned his Master of  Science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Miami. He also  earned his Professional Engineering License from the State of Florida.

Bruce has worked for large corporations like General  Electric and Bank of America. For many years he’s been an entrepreneur  running his own coaching business and helping entrepreneurs. Bruce implements  the Entrepreneurial Operating System, EOS®.

Bruce is the founder of Life Compass, Inc.  Life Compass is a 501c3 non-profit  committed to helping young people think about their future and creating a  personal Life Compass® to help them live their best life.

In 1984, Bruce fell on his knees and asked God to save  his life.  

God answered that prayer. Ever since then, he’s been a  warrior for God.  

In 2022, Stonebrook Publishing published Bruce’s book, “A  Well-Launched Life:  How Young People  Can Live an Intentional, Fulfilling Life.”  

Bruce has been married to Jan since 1991, and they have  four awesome sons, a daughter-in-law, a granddaughter, an Irish Wheaten  Terrier, and a tabby cat. He enjoys riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle,  golfing, camping, time at the beach, and serving at his church.


Join Dr. Meeker and Bruce Sheridan as they talk about his life and new book, “A Well-Launched Life:  How Young People Can Live an Intentional, Fulfilling Life.”  

There are four steps to the process in helping young adults find their purpose. 1.Think about what you want to do with your life. 2. Write it down. 3. Measure your progress every day. 4. Review it every 90 days.

He also shares about his abusive upbringing and has a message for fathers at the end of this podcast.
