                Butch Roussel

                The fifth installment of the podcast featured an interview with our good friend, Butch Roussel. Butch is an entrepreneur, athlete and forward thinking community leader in Lafayette, Louisiana. He is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University in Biotechnology Business, and he manages clinical trials for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies through his company Vivo Research. 

                Butch Roussel Vested Chasing Aces PodcastHe is also the founder of a community organization that hosts an annual event called the 24 Hour Citizen Project. The event connects citizens with expertise and financial backers to make community-focused ideas a reality. The organization is responsible for over $100,000 in private funds towards 19 public projects.

This not only served the users of the space, but encouraged business development in those areas as well, ultimately adding value to the community and powerful marketing opportunities for nearby businesses.

                Another project Mark and Butch discuss is how they were able to fund drinking water stations around Lafayette. By combining the recognition of the need, the financial backers, and the skilled citizens who could build and install the stations, the project was completed and is available for use right now. 

                An Optimistic Attitude

                As the podcast continues, an over-arcing theme becomes more prevalent: the optimistic and eager attitudes of both Mark and Butch. They continue on to discuss the somewhat turbulent online world that exists currently, and the solutions they've personally found to stay motivated while staying connected.
