Former Secret Service agent Evy Poumpouras explains Becoming Bulletproof
Evy Poumpouras is as inspiring as it is brave and intelligent. She worked as a secret service agent during the Clinton and Bush administration and was a member of the Presidential Protective Division for President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama. She received the US Secret Service Valor Award for her work as a first aider in the September 11 attacks and is now a journalist, co-host of the Bravo show Spy Games and author.
In a new episode of the podcast “I’m so obsessed” on CNET, she talks about her book “Becoming Bulletproof”. In it, she teaches you how to protect yourself, strengthen your mental resilience and strengthen your self-confidence. The idea is that you can learn to read people, influence situations, and live fearlessly.
“In law enforcement, I was a polygraph examiner and interrogator. I kept negotiating with people and other governments,” said Poumpouras. “These skills can pass to all parts of our lives and they bleed to other parts of my life. And if you have a really good foundation for tools that you use in your life, you will also become more confident.”
During our interview, Poumpouras talked about her mindset, how she learned to take a bullet for someone else, how amazing pets smell in the White House at all times, to be covered up to stop fraud, and after a career in law enforcement hers Graduated as a journalist from Columbia University.
