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

When he is not focusing on his retail businesses he is also developing real estate, creating and managing a group of unique Air BnB's in NW Montana, and traveling to fitness events/expos.
Full Auto Friday - Round 140 - With Nelson Grant
Today's episode is a blend of a traditional Full Auto Friday and Monday episode.
The question I opened with was an interesting one, in a nutshell: "I pulled my gun on someone in traffic and now I don't feel so good about it, any thoughts or advice?"
I figured that Nelson was the perfect person to help answer this question from a law enforcement perspective, and as I suspected, he did not disappoint.
The remainder of the episode was our traditional banter.
Episode 270 - 7 Jumps, 7 Continents, 7 Lessons for Business and Life
The 777 Expedition was an amazing journey, with 7 successful jumps on 7 continents in just over 6 days! For the members of the team, the impact was immediate and powerful.
After being home for just over a week and finally having some time to think and process, I realized there were very powerful lessons to learn or reinforce from each continent. These lessons can apply to everyone, in both their personal and professional lives.
Antarctica - Chile - Miami - Barcelona - Cairo - UAE - Australia
Full Auto Friday - Round 139
Rapid Fire Q and A to finish off the week:
1. Would you try to talk your child out of military service, and if so, how would you do so
2. Advice for staying sharp and strong as one ages
3. I was promised a permanent raise after holding an interim position and now that is not being honored, would you leave over something like this

777 Expedition Highlight
There were an incredible amount of memorable moments and lessons learned over the past week while traveling to all 7 continents, but one stands out above them all for me.
