When I was a kid growing up in the 1970s, I didn’t have the proper perspective or respect for the military and our veterans. Ironic as my father was a World War II veteran, who served 30 years in the Navy. I lived in a Navy town and owed much of my comfort in life to money that was earned through the Navy. It was post-Vietnam and although too young to remember that struggle, the carryover effect was real.
Today, I want to honor Dad for his 30 years of selfless service and his tenure in World War II, for which he left school at 17 years old on February 11, 1942 to join. I also humbly honor others in my life that served – my father-in law, brother-in-law, two sister-in-laws and countless other relatives and friends. It’s something I never did, yet I always knew my family and I were being protected, which is more than most people around the world outside the Unites States can say. To all of you on this Veterans Day….
Thank you for your service.

The 2015 Unleashed Executive Experience –Click here to learn more
Welcome to the most powerful and dynamic program I’ve ever created for business owners and executive leaders on unleashing your vast potential and maximizing your own unique talent and that of those around you.
My concept of the “open gate” is that unlike dogs, we as humans often tether ourselves inside our own personal gates and due to our own self-imposed limitations and fears, choose not to risk going through the open gate in front of us. The results include dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, poor leadership, bad morale, inefficiencies, and boredom. Bottom line is you and your business leave money and talent on the table.
