Be the Example I have wandered a bit. I Served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of some, taught some fitness, and spent the last few years speaking to companies and leaders. It has been a journey, and it is nowhere near over.

I think we covered it all on this one. Thoughts on every day carry items, concealed carry and actions by armed civilians, tips on getting in to skydiving, the value of sports for kids, CrossFit training, and my two cents on advice for parents. Hope you enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Cleared Hot Episode 20 - A small rant, questions from the internet

11/5/2017
More
I intended for this episode to be dedicated to answering military themed questions from the internet. After ranting for 25 minutes over my frustration about the handling and reaction to the deaths of the Army soldiers in Africa, I did actually answer some questions. Thank you to those who submitted them, and thank you to everyone listening.

Cleared Hot Episode 19 - Hunting in Georgia with John Dudley

10/29/2017
More
After a solid week of hunting for white tail deer in Georgia, I sat down with John Dudley and talked all things archery...How we hunted during the week, and our next planned adventure. John is an absolute wealth of knowledge, and if you have any questions about hunting and archery, I cannot recommend his Podcast Nock On enough. It, and he, are the one stop shop for information and education.

Cleared Hot Episode 17 - Reflections on Vegas and a successful elk hunt

10/9/2017
More
It was one hell of a week. I started my hunt with the news that the Vegas shooting had occurred hours before I woke up. There is some great information being discussed, and some wildly inaccurate information being touted as fact. It was and is a tragedy. I hope our country is mature enough to take the time for reflection, and potentially improvement. In other news that does not matter...I was successful in my elk hunt.

Cleared Hot Episode 16 - Do The Hard Things

9/27/2017
More
I am consistently asked by people from all walks of life how they can more effectively "Be The Example." I don't have any tricks or hacks, only a simple (not easy) thought process to guide my personal decision making. To be clear, I could not be further from perfect, and I definitely don't have it all figured out. I fall flat on my face and fail, often. When I pick myself back up, this is the principle that I use. Hopefully someone out there finds it useful.

Cleared Hot Episode 14 - Motivation and Purpose

9/22/2017
More
What is this?? A Friday Podcast?? Monday's podcast was about Failure, and you can't talk about Failure without at least dedicating the same amount of time talking about the other side of the coin. Many people spend time obsessing over motivation, which is a good thing, assuming it is there when you need it. If you ever find it lacking, you may find your world unravelling, unless you are backstopped by purpose.

Cleared Hot Episode 13 - Failure

9/18/2017
More
It happens to us all, and it happened to me last week. I have found that failures appear to come in many shapes and sizes, but they are nearly always the result of the same thing, focusing on what you cannot control instead of the one thing you can, yourself. It is a simple concept, but it is certainly not easy. Hopefully someone can learn from my recent mistakes, and not repeat them elsewhere.

9/4/2017
More
A last minute trip to Alberta Canada for my first bow hunting experience with John Dudley, and a podcast before I hit the road home. We hunted hard for five days, and saw just about every animal the amazing country had to offer. It was an adventure in the outdoors, and one I will never forget. If you are new to hunting, interested in hunting, or just enjoy tom foolery, this one will be right up your alley

Cleared Hot Episode - 10 with John Dudley. John is a world class archer and bow hunter. I first picked up a bow 18 months ago, and learned much of what I know by watching his videos on Youtube. Now, I am preparing for my first season of bow hunting, and was fortunate to spend a day and a half at his home, shooting arrows, rebuilding my bow, and picking a masters brain on best strategies for a first time bow hunter. He has an archery podcast called Nock On, a dedicated youtube channel...

Episode 9 with 2008 CrossFit Games Champion Jason Khalipa. What began as a competitive CrossFit career has evolved into a business empire. His facilities can be found across the globe, and it is not accidental. I have never seen the man not smiling, even in the midst of challenges that would strain even the strongest of families.

The three most impactful changes/improvements to the SEAL Teams post September 11th, 2001. You might think I am talking about SEAL stuff, but remove the term SEAL, and think about the changes from the perspective of your own organization, regardless of what you do, and the sector. Effective leadership, and when to start thinking and acting like a leader.

A lesson learned from a personal mistake that has stuck with me for decades. My thoughts on raising quality human beings, female operators in combat, and closing with my proudest moment, and my biggest regret.
