032: Nathan Spearing | Army Ranger Vet, Husband, Father of 5, Entrepreneur
On this episode of The Victory Podcast, I have the privilege and honor to host Nathan Spearing! Nathan gave back his reenlistment bonus and a promotion to leave the Army after a 14 years career encompassing 12 deployments with 1st and 3rd Ranger Battalion and Army Special Operations Command. When Nathan transitioned out of the military, he promptly began earning his "hard knocks MBA" when he started a construction company and struggled to be a better husband and father to his wife and five children.
He recently launched www.Spearing.co to help others achieve work/life alignment by honestly sharing his journey toward purpose and fulfillment in life after service.

Join Jay and Jacob Werksman as they discuss Jay's journey from enlisting in the Navy at 17 to combat deployments to the responsibility of people's lives to being a financial/executive coach. "Recommendations followed by actions equal credibility."
Oh, and get to know Jay because he'll be the new Host of The Victory Podcast!
How a service member continues to serve
Great to hear Jay’s perspective on being in the military and an EOD Technician, and how he is taking those talents with him to continue his service to the country in a different arena. Good luck! Excited to listen to the rest of The Victory Podcast archive.
Jacob does a good job of not making the podcast about him, he focuses on the guest which allows me to learn more about the guest and listen to their years of wisdom/knowledge. There isn’t a typical style, format, or guest Jacob brings on. He has a diverse group of leaders that bring different perspectives and that’s why I keep listening and why you should too.
This guy is something else!
The words, the energy I just couldn’t stop listening.
Recommend to hear this podcast at least one time...You’re not going to regret it:)
