The Ambitious VET Show

Feb 5, 2021

Isn't it funny when you come across those Uncle Rico military veterans who live for their glory days, thinking that their combat action ribbon will create a lucrative career or fulfilling life post military? Look, nothing is wrong with talking about your military experience, however, as you will learn inside of this episode, many veterans get stuck by simply still living in their past to only get slapped across the face by the present moment. What would it be like if you shifted your mindset from fixed to growth by simply getting out of uncle Rico’s van?!
