An Entrepreneur and Army Captain’s Practice Toolbox: How To Build a Mentally Resilient Team
Building resilience means getting out of comfort zones. Mental resilience enables us to accept challenges and to persevere. It isn’t an on/off switch. It’s a learned pattern of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and can be shaped by how we interpret the adversities we face.

Daniel Espinal is a first-generation American, the son of two immigrants, both scientists and entrepreneurs. His father came to the US from the Dominican Republic to attend military school and work as an electrical engineer. His mother, a chemist, was a political refugee from Chile fleeing the Pinochet dictatorship. Later they built a small environmental testing lab based on hard work and dedication to the best service. As a perpetual tinkerer, his father had several patents and created a radon-mitigation system that became the practice's bread and butter. Daniel learned from them to respect education, entrepreneurship, customers, and employees.
Daniel also served in the military, which shaped his belief in human ingenuity, and in allowing and empowering people to solve problems to unleash our innate creative genius. He applies this to his management philosophy. Although we have a long way to go, he believes we must become more inclusive of all in the business equation: employees, customers, shareholders, the environment, the community, and vendors.
