After 26 years honing a field craft that led me to places across the globe with the sole purpose of defending the men to my left and right, I never imagined it would lead me to one day building my own consulting company, training and passing those skills and knowledge along to others. Again, life took another unexpected twist—when a last-minute trip to assist with military props became an opportunity to provide some tactical perspective on the set of the movie Skyscraper. Once again, I was presented with the opportunity to draw upon the experiences I had gained over a lifetime in the fight and contribute to an exciting project, while learning about an entirely new industry from some of its very best.
I share this not to say, “Look at me!”, rather to show that no matter what age or stage in life you are in, continue to hone your skills, keep them sharp, and always keep learning. Because you never know what opportunities life will bring. Be ready for them, and when they come, be open to life outside of your box. That is where the adventure—and reward—usually lie. Stay in the fight y’all!
