    Episode 80 of the Check Your Six podcast brought Mike Mathers into the GRP Studios to talk about a different side of the insurance game. Mike is a retired Navy veteran that found his niche in the family atmosphere that he discovered at US Health. Many veterans that get out of the service do find it challenging sometimes to find a company that exhibits some of the same camaraderie that we experienced while we served. Mike has found that at US Health and he talked about that as well as some of the aspects of individual and business applications of what he does!!

    Episode 79: Javi Sanchez - Tap N Go - "Just Give It A Little Tappy"

    Episode 79: Javi Sanchez - Tap N Go - "Just Give It A Little Tappy"

    Episode 79 of the Check Your Six podcast sounds like it might be about golf with the "just give it a little tappy" reference from Happy Gilmore but it is actually Javi Sanchez talking about his company called Tap N Go or Tap"Y"Go as it is listed on the website. Javi stopped by the GRP Studios for this episode and talked about his journey from being a chef to the creator of his platform for your smart phone that can save you time and money. It is not an app, it allows you to simply tap the phone of the individual that you are meeting with or exchanging information with at a networking event, all without having to manually enter any of their content. It goes beyond that as well with other tools as part of the program for Tap"Y"Go.

Not sure if he is the Magic Man that Heart sang about in their hit from 1976 but he definitely has a program that works. Like a lot of programs, his does take some time but it is worth it in the long run!! Get the knots out of your body and get it back in balance with Derrick Brantley's Back In Balance Bodyworks.

John talked not only about how he got to where he is today, which includes providing lessons at Streamsong Resort and Falcons Fire, he also talked about one of his way in giving back that included a conversation about his involvement with the Parkinson Association of Central Florida. His passion for what he does and the things he does to help promote the game came through during our session and almost made us want to grab our clubs and go tear up a course(which is probably what would happen if we went out).
