    Season 2 EP22: Gray Man Project

    Season 2 EP22: Gray Man Project

    Every once in a while, a Marine comes along and wants to make even more of a contribution. Brady seems to be one of those types of Marines. Although he has already completed his service, he continues to serve the communities and cultures he belongs to on many levels and in extracurricular ways.

    He is now an executive protection agent which is initially how I stumbled across him. He has a nonprofit that helps veterans find their way through taking them out in nature to do hunts, hikes, camp trips, etc. to use nature as therapy. One of his newer products and projects is what initially caught my eye which is the “Gray Man Project“ where he aims to train people of the gray man mentality and way of life in order to empower them to protect themselves and their families.

    It was an absolute honor to have this conversation with Brady as there are so many crossovers and overlaps between the two of us and the paradigms we live by, there will be many more things to come out of this relationship but for now, enjoy this podcast and get plugged into work this man is doing because there will be some really big things coming down the line. ENJOY!

    Season 2 EP 21: A Heart for Protection

    Season 2 EP 21: A Heart for Protection

    When I first met Philip I was honestly impressed. It was at the very beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic and my company was being over tasked with security work. As the demands for manpower came in, I did everything I could to find high-quality individuals to train and put to work within Bravo Research Group. I conducted a virtual interview with Phillip to initially gauge his personality, social skills, and a few forms of intelligence. This interview is a very casual tool I use to help me understand people.

    Philip instantly presented as a very intelligent, very well-spoken, clean person with a high drive and a work ethic that is truly rare these days. He is literally the exact type of young block I like to bring on to my company based on what I saw in that interview, coupling that with the fact that he is also a Marine, makes him a grand slam. Unfortunately, we lived in separate states and this detail I was interviewing him for wasn't the type of detail that would allow me to relocate him to California.

    Nonetheless, he joined forces with me by entering the league of executive protection professionals after graduating from my executive protection training day success package. This course will allow him and I to do our careers together, along with the other certified executive protection specialists in that extremely powerful growing networking group. So naturally as I get ready to do my weekly group session with "the league" (my training day students) I see a news article with the video of him rescuing a child falling from a burning building… This was a truly spectacular example of a protectorate work.

    Naturally, we had to make an episode out of it because I really want both civilians and paid protectors to be inspired to act like Philip in the face of catastrophe. I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing Philip in our beloved private security industry. if you're looking to bring someone on your detail that will actually make a play, I want you to heavily consider him.

    Season 2 EP 20: Legacy

    Season 2 EP 20: Legacy

    Daniel Farr is private security professional. I have lots of respect for him, because he puts his heart and soul into the job he’s chosen to do. Always looking to raise the bar in his own life, gives him the ability to raise the bar in his company as he leads from the front and in the industry as his standards for training and work product are some of the highest.

    I first started my relationship with him at last year‘s Protector Symposium in November. It was an extremely good time and an absolute honor to meet, shake hands, and train with every single protector present regardless of location or background.

    With all that having been said, there are some people you meet that you know you’re meeting them for a specific reason. Since that day, Daniel has joined forces with me to bring the Protector Symposium 2.0 to the world and we look forward to you also hosting a Protector Symposium at his absolutely amazing facility on the East Coast near Virginia. That’s right, Daniel is located right in the heart of things where the big boys and federal agents reside so it’s nice to have a brother on the other coast who’s getting it done.

    For all, Daniel represents to himself, his family into the industry, I consider myself very fortunate and have a friend like him. This interview gives us an opportunity to talk about a number of values to our beloved Executive Protection game, the direction we see the industry going and we give some pointers to new agents looking to start a career doing what it is we’ve come to love doing… Keeping people safe. So go get your ticket to the Protector Symposium 2.0 at protectorsymposium.com then sit back and enjoy the show!

    Season 2 EP 19: My Brother's Keeper

    Season 2 EP 19: My Brother's Keeper

    When I first met Richard I was a little bit unsure… He reached out to me concerning a mentorship program I run through my Patreon account that I have since expanded through my online Executive Protection Training Course.

    Initially, I always wonder if the individual who I'm attempting to work with can learn how to market themselves to the industry in a dynamic way. I've learned that no matter what skillsets and abilities they come to me with if they're willing to do the work they can carve a place out in the industry for themselves. Richard surprised me, as his brand of intelligence is difficult to see coming.

    He executed swiftly on everything I asked him but added the magic sauce of going the extra mile and making every tactic his own by applying his personal touch. Richard was able to stay consistent, put in the work and contribute to important relationships within his world until he not only achieved his first and second line goals but is now running his own programs within a reputable security firm and conducting executive protection operations as well as training for them at a high level.

    I'm very impressed with Richard and it's an honor to see him elevate himself from a young man who wants to get into the security industry to the position where he is now assessing, training, and conducting operations with other security professionals as the man in charge.

    This is an episode all about the journey, the lessons learned along the way, and having the strength to face new challenges relative to your newfound strength and ability… ENJOY!

    Season 2 EP 18: The Marine Who Disarmed The Rioter

    Season 2 EP 18: The Marine Who Disarmed The Rioter

    Shooter Rughi is now known to the world as the guy who snatched a rifle from the hands of a rioter during the George Floyd protests. His act of heroism was quick, decisive, violent, and effective. When you see him interact with the rioter, there is a distinct difference between the two human beings. One of them embodies the cool, calm but aggressively calculated body language of a professional, while the other person is just kind of bubbly and haphazardly flopping around not knowing what is about to happen.

    One of them has grown up on video games and the other has been overseas fighting for the country dealing with real anarchy and broken governments for years. When the former is confronted with the situation, he does not know how to act or react so he simply gives in. This is what violence of action, decisiveness and the type of certainty that only comes from making decisions prior to action can give you during a dynamic and kinetic violent encounter.

    I relate to Shooter Rughi as he did what he thought any Veteran/American/Protector would do in that situation. He saw these criminals vandalizing and burglarizing a police car and when they stole the rifles that were in the unit, he went into action.

    Many of you have seen the news article and the video clips but if you haven’t I want you to look it up, you’ll find them on both mine and his Instagram accounts.

    It is an outstanding example of what Americans stand for and once again must become. It is also an example of exactly the types of civilians we want to contribute to, at the Protector Nation. Because the more good people who can become willing, capable, and prepared to deal directly with evil and violence, the safer the world will be.

    The best part about Shooter Rughi is simply that he is a United States Marine Corps infantrymen and when I heard that… It explained everything. As a real good and simple conversation between two grunts talking about the modern-day protectors. My hope is that this conversation and Shooter Rughi’s actions from the other day inspire more Americans to help the civilian population police its own regardless of worldview or political stances.

    Season 2EP 17: Kidnap and Ransom Negotiations in Mexico

    Pablo has been south of the border in Mexico working hard retrieving kidnapped persons and doing many other things for well over a decade. I know him personally and can say that he is a gracious man, he speaks deliberately and takes in as much information as he can before he responds.

    At first, it doesn’t seem like much but after learning about his past and what he used to do for a living, it all started to make more and more sense. He now runs the AS3 Driving Academy where he trains protectors on Waze to take their game to the next level with one of the tools we use more often than anything else, our vehicles.

    I have taken a course from them (https://byronrodgersmotivation.com/as-solution-tactical-driving-course-review/) and I can honestly say that my eyes were open in many ways to improve my driving skills in just 48 hours.

    As one of the sponsors for the Protectors Symposium 2.0 I am honored to join forces with Pablo and his cadre. This interview is one of the most eye-opening, real-world interviews I’ve done so far this year… Don’t miss it!

    Then join us for the Protector Symposium 2.0 and go check out AS3 to improve your skillset with one of your most important tools, your vehicle.
