From The Battlefield To The Air Waves

Learn strategies from today’s most successful Combat Veteranpreneurs

This podcast is where our Nations Combat Veteranpreneur’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 will discuss their experience in relation to what I have defined as their VisualReality; their personal vision of building a successful business leveraging their combat experience to bring the core strengths of a combat veteran into the entrepreneurial realm.

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