In Episode 116 I sat down with Tom Kent. He’s the founder of MyCivilianCareer.com. After getting out of the military he found that even with a degree in math from West Point, a career as an Army Intelligence Officer, the companies he always dreamed of working for didn’t have a place for him or so they said. He quickly adjusted and got his dream job but he had to get creative. After eighteen years and multiple jobs he decided to start his own business using all the tools and recourse that helped him over the years and now he helps the men and women who are just getting out and wanting a desirable, fulfilling career in something new. If you’re just about to get out of the military or have been looking for a job/career but can’t find one this is a great episode. Enjoy!

In Episode 109 I caught up with Nabil Amra. You may remember him from episode forty-nine. He was a contestant in the Golden Globe, a solo sail around the world. A race that has only been held once in fifty years. In this episode Nabil recounts the trials and tribulation of trying to get his boat seaworthy before the race. Then the sea conditions that destroyed his autopilot and drove him back to the Canary Islands. It became a survival sail that took him sixty four hours and left him a shell of man when he finally got there. It’s a very honest account of one competitors challenge in accomplishing a dream. Enjoy!

In Episode 103 I sat down with Austin Blevins. He’s a twenty three years old and owns Best Bangkok Tours a scooter tour business. What I love about Austin’s story is that he is a risk taker. He’s had his ups and down but at the end of each day he’s always ready and willing to look in the mirror and take responsibility for himself. His tours business takes tourist around Bangkok on the back of motor bikes giving them a real, authentic Thai experience. As he says “The reason you get a authentic Thai experience with me is that I show my guest both side of Thailand. Thai people are very patriotic and wouldn’t want you to see some of the places and things I show my guests.” Enjoy!
