It is safe to say that I have wandered a bit. I served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of most, climbed mountains (I jumped off of them too), taught fitness, owned a gym, and have spent the last few years speaking to organizations and leaders. It has been a journey, and in all honesty, I have no idea where it is going. I seek the things that make me uncomfortable. I move towards things that scare me. I think you should too

    Episode 215 - Kara Smith and Nic Mckinley

    Kara Smith spent 12 years as an intelligence analyst with the Air Force where she deployed supporting counter-terrorism operations tracking and locating terrorists. After leaving the Air Force, Kara worked at the NSA and then at the FBI in the Terrorist Screening Operations Unit as a Senior Intelligence Analyst assisting the FBI in identifying and monitoring persons on the terrorist watch list.
    Kara is now a senior analyst with Deliverfund and has helped take numerous traffickers off the streets by providing support to local, state, and federal law enforcement. Whether from her office or in the back of an undercover vehicle, Kara provides real-time information about the location of traffickers and their victims, using P.A.T.H.™ (Platform for the Analysis and Targeting of Human Traffickers) software developed by DeliverFund, in-depth social media analysis, and other cutting-edge technology.
    Nic Mckinley spent 11 years in US Special Operations as an Air Force Pararescueman prior to being recruited to the Central Intelligence Agency. While serving as a Country Chief for a Special Unit within the CIA he witnessed not only the epidemic of child trafficking within illicit markets but also the unrealized opportunity to apply his understanding and training to influence this global crisis. When Nic began to work with experts to better understand the problem in the United States he found it impossible to turn a blind eye. As a result, DeliverFund was officially established as a 501c3 in October 2014 as a counter-human trafficking organization, focused on ending sex slavery in the United States.

    Episode 214 - Josh Bridges

    After early success in his wrestling career, it was during his college years that he lost sight of who he was and what motivated him. It was during these dark times where Josh was introduced to the Navy SEALs and the catalyst that would get him fit enough to join their ranks, CrossFit.
    Once Josh had envisioned becoming a SEAL there was absolutely no turning back. Training harder than ever before, he overcame numerous hurdles to earn his trident and walk amongst the planet’s elite. During his time in the SEALs, Josh still trained harder than ever to accomplish another lofty goal of competing in the CrossFit Games. Balancing the grind of serving his country, he managed to do what he set out to and took 2nd place in the 2011 CrossFit Games, thus catapulting his name into the limelight in the world of competitive fitness. Known for his fiery antics and passionate roars of satisfaction when crossing the finish line after a job well done, he has gone on to compete at the CrossFit Games six times, winning multiple events and regionals along the way.
    Josh’s approach to mental preparation has long been sought after and he could not be more excited to help anyone from all walks of life to become the best version of themselves.

Fantastic Podcast

I don’t know much about Andy and many of his guests; but that has been a major learning experience and fantastic entertainment.

The Mike Glover and Evan Haifer episode had me cracked up and it address some deep issues that are digestible, interesting, and relevant to all, especially to non military people.

Keep up the amazing work.
