Throughout America's history, we have had much for which to be thankful. In today's episode we get a unique view on Thanksgiving and why Americans who want to be part of MAKING AMERICA STRONG AGAIN have a special opportunity. As we begin the Hanukkah and Christmas season, it's a great time to reflect and share fun times with friends and family.
At the same time, Americans face significant challenges on many different fronts; financial, political and security. How can we be thankful for the chaos we face? It seems odd to be thankful for the terrorist threats we face. What solace can we take from those who hate America?
For many who do not know history, it's easy to believe all this chaos is new. It's not. You will get a look back at America in the 1930's and what newly elected President Franklin D. Roosevelt faced as he gave his inaugural address. How can we benefit from his famous words about FEAR? How did our Founding Fathers deal with FEAR? What can we share with our families and friends as we gather around the Thanksgiving table that will truly make a difference and inspire them!
What happens when successful military leaders bring their Warrior Spirit to the civilian world? Join guest host David Wolf of SmallBiz America, and learn how two very successful men served their nation as well as local and global businesses. In today's episode, you will meet Steve Young, a senior business executive with broad experience in divisions of a Fortune 20 company and retired Major General Joe Balskus who served America for over 35 years while also becoming a successful entrepreneur.
Steve Young served as CEO of an international, $100M public company, had full P&L responsibilities in acquiring, building, restructuring and growing manufacturing, distribution and service businesses. Steve's first career as a Naval officer serving on submarines positioned him well for his big business and entrepreneurial experience.
Major General Joe Balskus served the United States Air Force and the Florida Air National Guard. He is broadly known as a superb motivational / leadership speaker and strategic planner. In addition to his success in the military, Joe was the owner and CEO of one of North Florida’s largest nursing staff relief and homecare agencies for over eight years before its acquisition by a national healthcare provider.
In this Veterans Day 2015 Edition of the Patriot Podcast, we take the opportunity to explore why and how those who have served in the armed forces can work effectively alongside entrepreneurs in creative ways that will be successful at MAKING AMERICA STRONG AGAIN. In order to effectively study this process, we must understand the paradigm through which we look at veterans and business owners.
Do we see what's different or do we see what they have in common? Veterans and Entrepreneurs share what we call the Warrior Spirit. When Battlefield and Marketplace Warriors come together to serve America, what do you think will happen?
Do you think we will see more unity at the grassroots level or will we continue to separate ourselves along countless lines of demarcation? Listen to learn more about this unique time in American history that requires warriors to work together against the tyrannical enemies of a weak economy, a divided America and fading national pride.
Why does Political Influence Matter? Have you heard anyone say, I’m not political? What does that really mean? I prefer to turn over complete control of my life to someone else to make the decisions. Or maybe it means, I want a cradle to grave, government controlled society that takes care of me. What does it mean to you?
In today's episode, we explore the need for knowledge, understanding and getting a firm grasp of the importance of liberty as well as non-partisan solutions to our future. We also examine the consequences of losing our liberty. We spend a few minutes to define LIBERTY and we evaluate how our nation is doing on a 1 to 100 scale.
We focus our last segment on answering the key question we have often asked on this program; "What can I do for America, RIGHT NOW, that will really make a difference?" There is an answer to this question, especially for creating the overwhelming political influence required to complete the task of MAKING AMERICA STRONG AGAIN!
