It only takes one idea or one story to change the whole trajectory of your life, career, and work. In each episode of The Journey, we talk to entrepreneurs of all stripes, so you can prime yourself with the knowledge and mindset you need for your own journey.
It Takes an Ohana: A Conversation with the Founding Team of Merivis
The founding story for any company is comparable to that of a great sports story: It typically features inspiring mentors, classic fumbles and recoveries, and of course, a team that has your back through it all. That’s why today’s episode is a little bit different. Rather than showcase the success of one small business entrepreneur... you’ll hear from three: Kate Perez, Hector Perez, and Joe Castro.
Reinventing Yourself with Mike Slagh
Navy veteran and founder of Shift.org, Mike Slagh, talks about tackling career transitions and why the veteran workforce is one of the most under-valued and under-tapped markets.
Impact-Driven Business with Jesse Grothaus
Getting to Market with Robert Patton
Robert Patton is an Army veteran and the founder of SHEATH Underwear. He has faced one manufacturing misstep after another. And while each stumble was tough to swallow — financially and personally — he’s persevered through the hard times, perfected his processes, and built a business that is growing every day.
Taking the Pulse of the Market with Marissa Limsiaco
Marissa Limsiaco is a West Point grad, an Army veteran, and a multi-time entrepreneur. She’s no novice to business and no stranger to hard work. But she will be the first to tell you that there’s absolutely no fighting the market. No amount of work will turn passion into dollars if the business model isn’t there. The good news? When the market is telling you there is a need, your success is only limited to your imagination.
Success, One Customer at a Time with Glenn Gonzales
In entrepreneurship, big moves matter - what market to target, which investors to work with, what to name your business and product. But Glenn Gonzales would argue that it's the everyday decisions that matter so much more.
Glenn is an Air Force Academy graduate, a Lt Colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, and the founder and CEO of Jet It. In today's episode, Glenn shares his story as a veteran-turned-entrepreneur, discusses his mindsets around scale and growth, and explains the role that great customer (and employee) experience plays in it every day.
