Over the past ten years, there's been a literal boom in Veteran charities. 501c3's have popped up in every corner of the country. 

Many of these organizations are doing great work, but they aren't getting much traction and they burn out quickly. This happens for three reasons:

1. They lack the marketing knowledge

2. They lack donors

3. They do not communicate with or work with each other

In this episode, I speak with Dave McConnell from Listening Post Ayr. Dave's organization does great work and is growing. 

He's also agreed to help in creating a database of small Veterans' organizations so that Veterans can find them and they so they can begin working together to promote each other. 

That list will be located at https://www.lpayr.org/services/help-by-state. 

I will also have this linked on the menu at Warriorsoulagoge.com. 

If you are interested in having your organization on this list, please contact Dave at david.mcconnell@lpayr.org.

As human beings we tend to think of life as an everlasting thing. That's why, when we lose someone, it hits hard. 

We've got to go on and live in this world without them. 

But the thing about life is that it isn't permanent. Every single one of us will face death at some point. 

And when we lose someone, it should remind us how important it is to actually live. 

This episode was created in honor of Corporal Jordan Pierson who was killed on August 25, 2006 in Fallujah, Iraq while serving in the United States Marine Corps. 

It was also created in honor of my friend Patrick "Juni" Gutierrez whom we lost last week.

The Millennial Generation could also be called the Scapegoat Generation. There's not a day that goes by that I don't see a meme on social media mocking millennials for being weak, overly sensitive, or incompetent. 

What these memes and posts fail to take into account is that, if the millennial generation is weaker than other generations, and I do not think that's the case, it's because we've failed them. We've failed to guide them, to teach them, and to mentor them. 

This episode discusses an argument that I got into this week on Instagram involving a young man who was accused of planning a mass shooting in my hometown of Norwalk, Connecticut. 

I discuss our tendency as a society to point the finger, virtue signal, and pass the buck when it comes to giving real guidance. I also discuss why these weaknesses will lead to more mass shootings, and how I believe that we can all step up. 

Another theme here involves the Veteran Community, and how many of us find ourselves stigmatized and cast out of society because we do not fit "the mold" of normalcy.

When many think of the "Left" in the US political-ideological spectrum, they think of things like tolerance, equality, and anti-imperialism. 

Yet, that perspective is increasingly being called into question. 

In this episode, we bring in the perspective of someone from the Caribbean, a region that's existed in the shadow of US foreign policy throughout its history. 

Dr. Kirk Meighoo is a Trinidadian academic, former independent Senator, and political thought leader. 

He is also a former "Marxist" who argues that "leftist" and "progressive" thought is actually more aligned with imperialism than the traditional conservative ideological perspective if you look at the facts and the historical record. 

In this episode, we dissect the current political discourse in the United States with a discussion of topics ranging from US foreign policy to immigration.

This is surely one of our most controversial episodes, and regardless of what your political views are, it's aim is to get you to think.

If you're a business owner, you need to hire Veterans. 

We all know that Veterans make for great employees, but few people know that businesses can actually make more money by hiring Veterans. 

Our guest today, US Air Force Veteran Robert Woods discovered this as he entered the job market. 

Specifically, he discovered that there are federal programs that will help to fund a Veteran's position, and allow the business and the Veteran employee to make more money. 

The problem: most employers don't want to do the paperwork and back work required to make it happen. 

That's where Robert's business Banneret comes in. 

His consultancy will come in, do the paperwork necessary and ensure that you have the workplace set up properly for training. 

In this interview, we discuss this amazing opportunity. We also discuss Robert's entrepreneurial journey, and how he got his start in New York City's tough business market.

Empowering the US Military Veteran Community, and anyone else willing to listen, to live their best lives. 

We've been recording this podcast for four years now. In that time, we've interviewed some amazing guests and we've spoken about some very important subjects for the veteran community. 

In this episode, I discuss why the Warrior Soul Podcast exists, how we are expanding our mission, and what the future looks like. 

As I mention in this episode, there is a large graveyard of veteran oriented podcasts on iTunes who do not publish anymore. 

It's not because they failed. It's because they couldn't be consistent and they stopped publishing. 

I feel immense gratitude for being able to do this and to serve this amazing community. 

During the show, I also take you through the list of resources we provide as an organization ranging from this podcast to YouTube. On them, you will find tools and strategies to help you with fitness, your career, your business, and your relationships.

Charlie Cina is the author of the book Expose and Close: Simple Networking, Marketing and Sales Techniques to Activate, Acquire, and Achieve Massive Success. 

He's worked in high-level sales environments for the last three decades, building sales teams and driving revenue for some of the top companies in the world across various industries.

He's also sold into multiple billion-dollar casino projects on the Las Vegas strip, including the Wynn Resort, Palazzo Hotel, Mandarin Oriental, and the MGM Grand. 

Currently, Charlie represents Lightspeed VT, one of the top companies in the world of Virtual Interactive Online Training. 

But if you were lucky enough to meet Charlie at a conference, or in passing at a coffee shop, that's not what he'd tell you at first. Charlie would tell you that he "empowers speakers, trainers, and subject matter experts to monetize their content worldwide in three easy steps." 

For Charlie, success starts with telling people who you are, what you do, what problems you can help them solve, or how you can make their lives better. 

His recently released book Expose and Close is one of the easiest to read, most digestible, and helpful books on sales that I have ever read. 

In a world where everyone has the next "trick" or technological "hack," Charlie offers a refreshing trip back to basic skills that could make you extremely successful in all areas of your life. 

Key Lessons

  1. Your name is powerful. Talk to people, give them your name and ask them for theirs. According to Charlie, there are life-changing opportunities within arms reach of you every time you go out in public. The simple act of approaching people and saying "Hi my name is ______, what's your name?" is responsible for a large part of Charlie's success. 

  2. Don't tell people what you are, tell them who you are, what you do, and how you can help them. As I wrote before, Charlie doesn't go around telling people that he's a salesman. He tells them "I empower speakers, trainers, and subject matter experts to monetize their content worldwide in three easy steps." This simple statement gets people wanting to know more, while the "I'm a salesman" statement would have been a non-starter for most people. 

  3. Dress for success. You are a package, and you need to wrap your package effectively if you want people to be interested in you. 

  4. It's not all about technology. In the internet age, it's easy to think that technology could do all of the work for us, but Charlie thinks this is a mistake. Though he says social media is important, the old fashioned techniques of cold calling and knocking on doors are still vital forms of communication. 

Advice for Veterans

Charlie was extremely enthusiastic about coming onto the Warrior Soul Podcast and speaking to our audience of veterans because he sees so much potential in the US Military Veteran community. 

Many of you have been through things that most people could not grasp. You have dealt with people of all types, and you have overcome obstacles that would make many people break. 

If you can do that, you have what it takes to be a successful salesperson or entrepreneur. 

Whether you are in sales or not, I highly suggest that you get a copy of Charlie's book by clicking on its image.

Additionally, Charlie just released his new virtual training course at www.exposeandclose.com. Currently, he's offering this course at a massive discount. 

Normally, it runs for $1,000, but it's being sold for a limited time for our audience at $297. I enrolled in the training myself, and I can tell you the

I don't want to be another talking head giving my opinion on the mass shooting problem here in the US. 

Nor do I want to be just another wonk trying to leverage for political positioning. 

What I want is a real solution, and no real solution is going to come from legislation.

Kevin Meier is the creator of the Pure BullFit channel on YouTube. He's also a certified personal trainer and a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps. 

I first heard about Kevin several weeks prior to this conversation while I was watching YouTube while eating lunch. 

As many of you know, I spent six years as a fitness "YouTuber" and had some pretty pitiful success when it came to growing the channel. I guess people didn't like my pretty face lol. 

In all, I found YouTube Fitness to be a veritable cesspool of misinformation and pseudo-academic garbage. 

There are, however a few channels that really shine through when it comes to providing excellent information, and I consider Kevin's to be amongst them.

Pure Bullfit is an excellent resource for separating fact from fiction when it comes to fitness and I'd recommend it to people at all levels. 

It's fun, entertaining, and informative. 

Kevin is also a great dude with a huge heart. In this conversation, we speak about his journey through the US Marine Corps, his introduction to fitness, and his YouTube channel. 

We also have a great discussion about who you should be following on YouTube and who you should avoid like the black plague.

In this episode we bring Remi Adeleke back onto the show to talk about his new book Transformed

This book is the best book I've read in 2019, and I literally could not put it down once I started reading it. Remi was born of Nigerian royalty.

His father was a successful engineer who wanted to help to make Nigeria prosperous, but corruption stood in his way. Remi's father died when Remi was only 5, and the government seized his assets, leaving his family penniless. 

Remi's American mother was forced to move Remi and his brother back to the United States to the Bronx. The streets became Remi's father and he found himself running scams, dealing drugs, and barely graduating high school. 

His life took a massive turn when he met a US Navy recruiter who helped him get his record wiped clean. Remi joined the Navy and eventually went on to become a Navy Seal. Since leaving the Navy, Remi has become an actor and recently appeared in Transformers: The Last Knight. 

Remi's book isn't just a self-help book nor is it a military biography. It is a testament to the power of God in peoples' lives and of faith's ability to completely transform those who accept it. 

You can find Remi's book on Amazon at https://amzn.to/2SVOZkz
