From Service To The Air Waves


Season 1 (Episodes 1 to 45) - Our Nations Combat Vetrepreneur’s talk about how they transformed their combat experience into a groundbreaking entrepreneurial success and courageous champions of veterans who started businesses for the purpose of supporting veterans.  We discuss their experience in relation to what I have defined as their VisualReality; their personal vision of building a successful business leveraging their experience to bring their core strengths into the entrepreneurial realm.  

Season 2 - The show will embarking on a slightly different path in 2018.  I will be interviewing those that have stories of empowerment.  These will include how they have been empowered to achieve success or overcome obstacles/limitations in their lives or how they have empowered others to achieve great success in their lives.  Please check back for more details on when our first episodes will release in 2018.

Welcome to the Charlie Mike Podcast

Hi listeners I’m Dwayne, a Vetrepreneur with a large passion for empowering the veteran community and partnering with veterans to live inspiring and fulfilling lives.  Over the past 25 years I have served in the military, climbed to an executive position and branched out as an entrepreneur. 

I originally created the Charlie Mike podcast to help showcase the amazing success achieved by various Combat Vetrepreneurs.  Combat Veterans bring a vast amount of experience to the entrepreneur realm that cannot be replicated in any other way.  In Season 1 the Combat Vetrepreneurs will walk you thru their amazing experience and give you some great advice on how to become just as successful as they have.  In Season 2 we will be embarking on stories of empowerment.
