    Season 2 EP 4: Authenticity

    Season 2 EP 4: Authenticity

    All of this training with Firearms over the years has got me itching to be a bit more physical and so I have aimed to deliberately focus more on hand to hand Combatives and other things in between.

    So when I saw the content floating around the Internet of Raul grappling hard-core with some guys over a gun, I was naturally drawn in. After looking at much of his content, I realized that Raul is the type of protection centric professional that I can respect and naturally bond with.

    He’s not about being the biggest or the baddest but he’s about being his best in order to protect those who are counting on him. He’s all about empowering people to learn how to protect themselves on many different levels.

    With a background in the military, private security and also law enforcement, he’s been around the block, seen a few things and now he is making waves while becoming a premier instructor in the industry.

    Standby for more from myself and fieldcraft as I have a few reviews coming up from their courses over the trajectory of this year. This conversation between me and Raul has everything for everyone including some good stuff about getting physical with your gun and listening to it talk.… ENJOY!

    Season 2 EP 3: Excellence is a habit

    Season 2 EP 3: Excellence is a habit

    I take pause before writing this review for Charles because it’s very important to me that I do a good job helping you all understand what manner of man he is. When I was coming up in the game, I worked for Charles for a few years and I must say that I’ve never had a boss or mentor go the extra mile for me in the ways that Charles did routinely and not just me but for all of the guys on his team who worked to deserve it.

    The ones that didn’t deserve it he would always try to save but he was never an enabler of bad character. Not only is he the type to go the extra mile for his team and his clients but he also said his people up for success, always aiming for a mutually beneficial arrangement whenever possible.

    The things I learned from Charles in life, business, and Executive Protection is something that I implement and use to this very day. He’s one Man I wish more people could benefit from a relationship with because I know it would make our industry a better place. Enjoy this interview and absorb what is useful my friends.

    Season 2 EP 2: The First Line of Defence

    Season 2 EP 2: The First Line of Defence

    Yousef Badou teaches what I think is simply the most important component of protection, situational awareness coupled with the ability to read and predict people through human behavior. As I try to spread the art of protection like a virus I have found Yousef to be one of my greatest allies simply because spreading soft skills is easier than spreading hard skills and so we aim to spread situational awareness like a virus.

    When people know what pre-threat indicators to truly look for, people will be able to shut down violence before it starts and avoid it altogether.

    This is the art of behavioral profiling that Yousef is arming corporations, places of worship, schools and the world with. It doesn't matter how big, strong or combat effective you are which is the beauty of this discipline, anyone can get good at this and that's why it's so important we bring the art of behavioral profiling to the world. So enjoy this episode and send it to all of your loved ones!

    Season 2 EP 1: The Groundwork

    Season two is coming in hot!!!
    I and Luke A. are laying down the groundwork for what you can expect out of the executive protection lifestyle podcast and brand this year. I've got no shortage of content this year and it is very exciting!

    I'm throwing down gear reviews, training reviews, real-world combat after-action reports, the EDC chronicles will continue and so will the considerations episodes. Perhaps most importantly, the interviews with the biggest and the best in the executive protection industry will continue coupled with interviews from people you've never heard of before who are doing some truly amazing things behind the scenes.

    My goal is to explore the beauty in diversity and opportunity woven into our extremely expansive industry. We are living and working in an amazing time for the security professionals my friends, loved ones and colleagues. Our industry is going through a renaissance of change and opportunity and I am absolutely honored to do everything I can to make a valuable contribution to those who want to improve themselves as well.

    My aim is the same as it has always been but my tools have improved and the journey has helped me evolve into someone who's better at accomplishing the original task of contributing to a higher quality, more competent, more efficient and effective private security professional. Stick with me through this journey and let's become better together as we dive into season two of the executive protection lifestyle podcast. ENJOY!

    EP 66: Recap and Transition

    EP 66: Recap and Transition

    This season has been absolutely epic!!! I started this podcast out as a cool side project that I could use to hopefully get the word out about ways to do the job better. I simply wanted to make a contribution to the industry that has been so good to me but I knew that the contribution needed to be something that wasn't all about me. The podcast would give me a perfect platform to do that by seeking out other industry professionals who were doing amazing things in the private security game. I wanted to create something that would give other industry professionals the insight they need to survive and thrive doing what we do.

    I wanted to create something that would help others benefit from the conversations I wish I was able to have when I started on my first full-time executive protection detail at the age of 21 traveling the world and trying not to get fired. The podcast itself came out of the Facebook group but together they both worked synergistically in order to create a brand that I've come to realize is a very influential blessing to many in the private security game that is absolutely priceless...

    The groups on Facebook and LinkedIn are places where people are finding work, finding quality manpower and getting the information they need to level on a weekly basis. The podcast itself has emerged as the most listened podcast within the realm of private security and especially the executive protection space. I worked hard to make these things available but the credit really goes to all of you for listening, watching, liking and sharing this content in order to improve the quality of the game from us.

    Thank you so much for seeing the value in this work and selflessly spreading it around the industry as you have in order to help me in the endeavor to help us all when I'm doing what it is we love, protection. The private security industry is scheduled to double over the course of the next few years, there's more than enough for all of us to prosper and succeed in this market.

    I'm honored and humbled that you have all supported this work in the ways that you have and I'm genuinely looking forward to contributing the best I can as we move forward into the future of 2020 together.

    This brand has become vast and multifaceted so below you will find different ways to benefit from this work, stay plugged in and hopefully take your protection game to the next level as so many of us have been able to during our first year of production.

    EP 65: EDC 4 (Barry Mozian)

    EP 65: EDC 4 (Barry Mozian)

    Barry is a private security professional of the highest order in my opinion. I remember the day I first saw the way he organized his gear because I instantly had 1 million different questions. I was just starting out working at the California circuit, renting myself out to the highest bitter and “chasing the pager.”

    After all of these years and after all of these experiences, once I started doing this Executive Protection EDC series, he was one of the industry professionals that stuck out in my mind. Barry is a wealth of knowledge in many different areas and if you haven’t already found it, I’d like to encourage all of you to go back to one of our previous episodes #32 where we dive deep into the topics of workplace violence and private security investigations.
