Real. American. Hero.

You’ll never hear Mike say that.

Mike’s military career speaks for itself, but his mission continues to this day as the co-founder of EF Overwatch, Founder of VETTED and speaker with the Echelon Front team. We sit down with Mike and dive into mistakes, the state of veterans in America, and how failure should fuel your next accomplishment.

E54 - Take Inspired Action w/ Brian Jones

January 22, 2019

Fun. Laughing at yourself. Admitting when you screw up, but knowing in the end everything will be ok.

It first starts with owning the jacked up decision, then correcting the behavior that caused that to happen. We jump into Brian Jones's story of transitioning away from real estate into a transformation coach. Once you hear the story, you'll understand how owning the issue, then correcting it, helps bring into focus what's been missing.

Appreciate you sharing, Brian - now, I don't feel like a dufus for some of the crap I've pulled during my time on this ball of mud.

E52 - Black Level AV Founder, Jeff Skinner

January 8, 2019

What would you do to “right” a “wrong”?

What if when you tried to “right” it, it created a decision for you that affected your well-being and your income?

Can’t say that doing to the right thing would lead to an easier situation, but being in a wrong one may be the friction you need in order to start something great. Jeff Skinner’s story of how Black Level AV started was almost precisely that and continues to be that. Drawing from the past experiences of failure and let downs, he was able to draw closer to those that cared and those that wanted him to truly succeed. Those in his home and in his community - because he served them and changed, his life is completely different.

E50 - Change Management w/ the “Knucklehead”

December 4, 2018

There's not a manual for the shit.

Started a company when I got out of the Marine Corps and failed miserably.

Didn't understand that that was the key to the success going forward.

Almost wrecked my entire relationship, to the most important person in my life, my wife.

Didn't respect how precious my children more, or that time by chasing a dream that I believe with every fiber of my body would be happening.

Instead scrape my knees busted my nose almost went broke, barely could pay rent for years on end and came out better because of the experience.

To say I needed to perfect change and use best practices is an understatement. For those that can relate, feel free to check out the four principles of change management as it relates to your business, new parenting endeavor, or project that you're looking to improve.

Principle #1: Delineate between strategy and a plan. Don't confuse where the rubber meets the road

Principle #2: Know how your train. You'll need remedial or corrective action that are anticipated and well thought out.

Principle #3: Choose the right plan.

Principle #4: Choose the right strategy.

E49 - Shut it down Southpaw Laser Concepts Founder JD Tierney

November 27, 2018

Having an idea. Taking that idea to market. Using your idea to build products and services. 

You’re in business.

As momentum starts, so does your insecurity.

You land a few sales.

The blur and activity attract your attention, but the voice in the back of your mind is still there.

It reminds you that you don’t truly know what you’re doing.

Then, the sales stop. Momentum slows and you’re lack of planning catches up with you.

This story is all too familiar and JD Tierney shares some of the hardest moments of being an entrepreneur with us. His business is no longer, but the spirit he ran it with is alive in him - you can learn from these lessons and navigate those challenges almost before they happen to you.
