Fixing the Job Search - Joe Shepherd Founder of ZenLeap
Job searches suck ... big time.
All of us at some point have experienced it. Some of us have nightmares about it. Joe is one of those people that had to learn the hard way. Even with all the technology we have - today's market is brutal and unforgiving.
Joe and a handful of others have banded together to create something that we're hoping will put the power back into the hands of the job seeker and eliminate the biases that sometimes (a lot of times) come with hiring.
Our ask is that you head over to www.zenleap.net and create a profile and let us know your feedback. We're small enough and nimble enough to actually hear what you're saying and make the changes that need to be made.

Veteran's Week - Sexual Assault in a Military Academy - Polo Tate
Today's episode will heal someone if they're willing to listen to the questions and the truths that Polo Tate speaks.
Growing up, Tate used her academic aptitude and athletic prowess to earn appointments to both The United States Military Academy at West Point (USMA) and the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs (USAFA). She decided to accept the challenge to attend USAFA out of high school, where she played varsity volleyball in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC). Tate left during her second year, and her harrowing journey at one of our nation’s most challenging institutions can now be found in her gritty, honest and dynamic debut memoir, Deep Dark Blue.

Veteran's Week - Unflinching Truth - Rich Cardona
Rich Cardona enlisted in the Marines because, in his words, he was a shit head. He planned on getting out at the end of 4 years but because of 9/11 ended up reenlisting and as a result stayed for a total of 17 years.
He did all the things he thought he was “supposed” to do to make himself marketable.
He got the right jobs and even tried to play the political game at one of the biggest companies on the planet. But ended up realizing that even with an amazing salary and big house (and his financial advisor telling him to just stick it out) he just couldn’t do it anymore.
So he struck out on his own, attempting to find out who he really is and what he really wants.
And just a week before this episode aired, he had a life-changing conversation with Gary Vaynerchuk about his personal truth.
Listen in because the questions and the truth that is spoken in this episode transcend far beyond just veterans. The conversation we had should be taken to heart by anyone that wants to live truly happy as who they truly are meant to be.

Veteran's Week - Start Where You Can - Samuel Messenheimer
Samuel Messenheimer is a Marine Veteran and Founder/CEO of Critical Axxis. He is also one of the most giving and compassionate people I know. He, like many veterans, went into the military because that was the only option he saw for himself. It instilled discipline, pride, and determination in himself.
But as soon as he got out - he got punched in the face with reality. He wasn't prepared for how the civilian world worked. He had to learn how to ask for help and had to learn that it's ok to be a beginner.
Once he pulled himself out of that funk he decided that he was going to help as many people and organizations as possible so that they don't have the go through the same challenges he did.
If you want to connect with him or get involved in helping veterans through Critical Axxis, reach out to Samuel using any of the links below:

Veteran's Week - Finding Purpose in Transition - Christopher Morga
Christopher Morga is a Navy Veteran with a similar story to a lot of veterans. He entered the military without a lot of direction and transitioned out with that same lack of clarity and that ended up punching him in the face.
After losing his home and breaking down in the middle of his kid's room, he eventually found his purpose out of frustration with the job search and many recruiters' lack of empathy.
Fast forward 15 years later and he is on the Forbes Coaches Council, is a published writer, keynote speaker, and is doing everything he can to empower people to find their purpose and not experience what he did in the job search.
This episode is 1 of 5 focused on helping veterans. While that is its focus and goal, much of this information can be applicable to almost anyone.

My first podcast!
I did my first ever podcast with Reena, Greg and Shaun. It was the first time, I was kind of nervous but you know these 3 guys made sure that I felt comfortable and to my best.
It was like a fun session where I was allowed to speak about whatever I have to say about the topic. I am still connected with them after the podcast and it really feels like we belong!
If you’re not listening to the podcast, it’s a loss for you. Insights and truth is the main thing which this podcast majors in. You need to listen to each and every episode.
