Mark's journey in leadership began as an enlisted Marine. It was during this time that he began to understand the importance of being a good leader and a good follower.
As he was making his transition to Warrant Officer, he began to understand the importance of having a vision as a leader. We get into what a vision is, why it's important, and important lessons in both leadership and followership during this outstanding conversation.

Josh Guerrero: A Life of Adventure And Service
Josh Guerrero is a Marine Corps Veteran, archeologist, podcaster, and adventurer.
In his day to day life, Josh travels the world unearthing remnants from the past and has dedicated much of his time to training others to do the same.
The last time I had Josh on the Warrior Soul Podcast, he was prepping for a trek through South America to raise money for American Veterans Archeological Recovery (AVAR), an organization that provides training for Veterans in Archeology.
When the Covid 19 pandemic took the world in its grasp, Josh could no longer head to South America. Like a good Marine, he pivoted, and decided to hike across the state of Michigan along the North Country Trail.
Josh started the trek in late summer, and completed his journey in the second week of December. Assisted by "Trail Angels,"who provided him with food, supplies, and sometimes shelter, Josh averaged 15 miles a day during his trek.
Along the way, Josh raised money for AVAR through his GoFundMe at https://www.gofundme.com/f/wolverinewalk. He has left the GoFundMe open to continue to raise funds for this outstanding organization.
I caught up with Josh just a few days after he'd finished his trek. His powerful mindset and desire to help others through his passion for archeology and adventure is truly amazing, and I'm proud to have him as a Marine brother.

Body, Mind, and Money: Taking Control in the Modern World
It's a crazy time out there and a lot of people aren't happy with what's going on. If you're in that category, the best way of doing something about it is to take control of your physical, mental, and financial life.
Holiday Message: Don't Let Go
The holidays are a hard time for many people who have struggles within. It's a difficult time to be alive, but there's a lot of cause for optimism. Don't let the negativity get you down and never let go.
Why I Started Doing Standup
In a time when freedom of speech and public get togethers are being made illegal in formerly free places around the world, it's more important than ever that you get up there and speak your mind. Comedy is one way of doing that.
Chris has endured many challenges in his life, from his time in uniform as a Marine and more recent during his transition years. Chris has the end in sight; his focus and willingness to help others in fulfilling their lives is admirable and heartfelt. Thanks Chris and keep on charging. Semper Fidelis.
Great podcast but some information from guests was misleading
First, I want to say that Chris is a great host! I myself am combat veteran with a similar past as Chris. I also suffer from UC, just like Chris. I also truly appreciate everything he’s trying to do with the podcast for the Veteran community to empower them to be better and stronger. The only issue I have is that a few of the guests have spouted off false information because they didn’t think anyone would notice, maybe, or they have an agenda. Just one small example of this would be when one of the guests said that the VA does not provide CBT, talk therapy, general therapy, or prescribe any medication for psychological/ psychiatric disorders and just rates them (often wrong or over rates them, which may be true) and then pushes them on the street. They actually saved my life with a combination of resources and now I have a doctorate degree and am a practicing healthcare provider with a wonderful family and my life together. This could be dangerous to the veteran community and cause them to lose more hope. We need to push together and provide all the facts, not just the ones that sell our prospective books. Veterans should be able to look where ever they want for help, and be provided a variety of resources. That is truly the best way we can pull ourselves up and live our best lives and excel in the prospective areas we choose to live. I do agree, however, that we need to get our generation of Veterans to lift ourselves up and form a sort of Renaissance, so to speak; but we need to do it with the truth.
Really liked it until….
The podcast started talking about sensitive social and political topics that have nothing to do improving the warrior soul. He and his guests are VERY right leaning and talk about their views on CRT, politics, and the COVID vaccine. The LAST episode I listened to I couldn’t get through. He had some doctor (not an epidemiologist) talk about the vaccine mandate being disgusting, blah blah blah. Did some research on the doc and his website just pushes some sleep supplements (creatively called “Sleep Remedy” priced at $60 for 30 pills.) He also admitted not know much about the world. Neat. Stick to healing warrior souls and not talking about how liberal academic institutions are indoctrinating staff and students into they crazy leftest agendas like CRT.
