Have you ever heard about someone and just knew you had to meet them?

This was one of those times. A friend of mine was bragging about his boss one day, telling me how amazing he was and how he was one of the greatest leaders he’d ever worked with.

Can’t say I hear a lot of people bragging about their bosses, so I had to learn more.
