Positively Actionable Education


The Big Picture

Thu, Jan 25, 2018 | 4 – 5:30pm PST

Event Description

The premise is leaders are not born, they are made. I am living proof. Born in Winnemucca, Nevada and from age 5 to 10 lived in a desert town of McDermitt, Nevada, population 67!

At 17, I joined the USMC and learned the application of the principles and traits of leadership that allowed me promotion from the lowest rank to Lt. Col. Upon retirement, I applied these skills in private industry as a manager and executive in marketing, engineering, and manufacturing. At the age of 23 in Vietnam I commanded over 350 Marines in a combat environment without one death. I served with and was served by the best, including 5 Medal of Honor winners, a Commandant of the Marine Corps, 2 assistant commandants, the Sgt. Major of the Marine Corps and Command Master Chief of the Navy.

I attribute my success in life to my understanding and application of the knowledge I will share during this presentation.

Pain is weak, indecisive, ineffective leadership. Gain is self improvement by learning to apply JJ DID TIE Buckle and what that means to those who earn the title US Marine.
