"The Launch" into my post-military service life

When Dan Miller describes "The Launch", the sculpture he commissioned that took form during INNOV48, it is just like the decision to retire from the military for me. He describes the bird with wings extended expectantly, body poised, fully committed to flight with no thought of retreat. As an Air Force pilot, that nailed the way I feel now.

I entered the service during the culmination of the cold war, saw Desert Storm unfold, was in Port au Prince, Haiti the day after the invasion was recalled after takeoff. I've been to Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Djibouti (Africa), Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Kuwait, Qatar, and been stationed in Japan, Korea, Hawaii, and throughout the continental United States. Throughout that time I have been proud to be surrounded by people committed to integrity, to service before self, and to excellence in everything they do. They are men and women who are smart, talented, and upbeat in the most dire circumstances. Most of the complaints I heard were when things were easy and carefree.

It was difficult for me to leave the military, but because of Dan Miller's program I was able to join a great organization that is devoted to developing the next generation of military leaders to succeed in the most difficult and dangerous work of the nation. I continue to work with individuals who are motivated more by the mission than by the pay.

Yesterday's Success is the Biggest Detriment to Tomorrow's

Posted on November 16, 2014 at 9:04am 2 Comments

The post title is a quote from John Maxwell who appeared on Dave Ramsey's radio show on Friday, November 14. It's a powerful warning against complacency. I've seen great people implode after years of success, blinded by a sense of invincibility. Coming from a military background, we studied a concept called the…

I've accepted a civilian position with the Air Force in an organization I became interested in four years ago. I got the word out through my network about a year ago that I was interested in relocating to Las Vegas and got a note from a colleague that this particular job was opening up this fall. There is no way I would have seen the position announcement as I was enjoying my military terminal leave on the beach in Vermont if my friend hadn't given me the heads-up, and because I already had…


New Career--Thanks Dan!

Posted on November 4, 2014 at 7:00am 1 Comment

Just started my second career following 25+ years of military service. Thanks to Dan Miller and the 48 Days process I was able to find a position that was a great fit for me and my long term goals, in the city I wanted to live, and that will give me more money than I've ever had in my life. I was able to do all this while sitting on the beach. Dan's process works!

Tough Boss? You're Lucky!

"I hate my boss." Have you heard that, or said that yourself? Think about the reasons someone might "hate" their boss.

- They pay attention to details and notice when you stray across the line.

- They hold you accountable for your actions.

- They continuously ask you to do more, to be more productive, and contribute more to the operation.

- They set high standards, and BHAGs (Big, Hairy, Audacious, Goals) and then points out when the team is falling short of the mark.

-… Continue

Nice to see people I know on the boards!  Still poking around and getting an idea of what's here.  Getting all of the pieces in place to open new opportunities and pursue different goals that are aligned with my values.  I would love to reconnect with you.  I'll shoot you a note off line.  Thanks for the pointer to the veterans group.  Hadn't found that one yet. ~ PJ

Thanks for the comment, and giving me some motivation.  I've already started networking with forums, and other organizations in my state, and any help is appreciated.  Once I get some products moving, I'll deff be looking at doing booths like you suggested.  Thank you!

Thanks for connecting, Lee. I was in the airlines, and gone a few days every week. My kids just started school and there's a lot I'd be missing if I was still traveling as much.

Insurance is important depending on the circumstances of each person. Have you ever heard of the "theory of decreasing responsibility?" Basically it states that the older one gets, the less responsibility one has, i.e. no mortgage, grown kids, etc... Now this is not always the case, so it depends on the specific needs of the individual and does your income still need to be protected, mortgage, debt, and college.


If you need insurance, then go with Term only. And of course only the amount of coverage that is specific to your needs. If you want more information then just let me know :)
