December 7, 2017

Show Notes:

In the military, people are groomed to be able to take a given situation (many times dangerous) and take charge of it. Often an objective will change at a moment's notice, but the end goal remains the same. Because of this, they learn to be flexible and resourceful.

When they get out of the military, many veterans find it hard to get back into civilian life primarily because the world they're used to is so different than what they're now having to adjust in. A lot of times, the work their working life doesn't make as much impact as the work they're used to. And, further more, the mindset of your typical civilian worker is completely different.

Many veterans who start their own business do so because they feel that calling to do something more than the typical 9 to 5. In fact, they don't just feel it - they know that they can build something meaningful because of their experiences.

However, just like any entrepreneur's journey, the path to do that isn't super straight forward. So that's why folks like today's guest, Dr. Robert Garcia are needed. They can relate to the veteran because they've been there - but they also know what it takes to be successful in business.

Today we find out why he's referred to as the Warrior Strategist.
