Fuel For Warriors features military veterans, athletes, and other warriors to discover their challenges and inspiration.
FFW #56: Alex Heaton - Marine veteran working for deported veterans
Alex Heaton is a Marine Corps veteran that has begun work in support of deported veterans. This is a segment of the veteran community that I had never considered or learned about. So, when I heard Alex had experience, I immediately invited him on to talk about it. Lock-N-Load Java has re-branded to Alpha Coffee. Same great company, same great coffee, just a different look on the packaging. Go to www.alpha.coffee to check them out. Enjoy the show and stay tuned for more Fuel For Warriors!!!
FFW #55: Sekou Andrews - Poetic Voice
Sekou Andrews is a very passionate and motivating person. I first heard about him on the Tim Ferriss Show, and when I watched one of his TED Talks I knew I had to have him on the show. Sekou and I had some scheduling complications, and then some technology issues, but we ultimately made it happen and I'm so glad we did. He's talks with us about what it means to be a warrior, his routine before a speaking engagement, and how we can all get the best out of ourselves. If you're inspired by Sekou, you need to check out his webinar that he's hosting on October 18th. Click here for information on that event. Thanks for listening and be sure to thank Sekou on Twitter for joining us. @SekouAndrews @TimLawson21 @LockNLoadJava

#36: Meghan Klingenberg- USWNT
I just enjoyed Tim Lawson’s fine interview with Meghan Klingenberg, defender for the United States Women’s National Team and the Portland Thorns. She talks about what it means to be a warrior, challenges she faces and what ultimately inspires her. Tim does a fine job as interviewer and host and I think this show has a bright future…. Bravo!
