The former Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (SEAC) John Wayne Troxell and I discuss his transition journey into entrepreneurship after 38 years of service in the United States Army.
We talked about the Airborne Operation into Panama, a little about the waves created in Washington when he talked about our troops using whatever method necessary to annihilate the enemy, including the E-tool and then the birth of E-Tool Nation and PME-Hard Consulting.
It was truly an honor to spend some time with the SEAC and get his perspective on transition.
Come check it out and see what SEAC (R) Troxell is doing, On The Other Side.

His message, "Do your homework" makes sense and he reinforces it through excellent dialogue! Let's see what Rob is doing, On The Other Side!
Today, Bryan takes us on a journey of his career and finding himself after. I saw Bryan on LinkedIn and posted a question about the transition process and asked, basically, why he couldn't get in front of the transitioning Service Members to talk.

Bryan is working with many groups to assist Veterans during their transition so it was a no brainer to bring him on so he can share his story with you about what he is doing, On The Other Side.
