While I didn’t really get military clearance to hang out with my marketing buddies at the Pentagon, I did the next best thing.
Instead, when I had the privilege last March to speak to our troops stationed just outside The Pentagon at Fort Myer, Virginia, I took that opportunity to speak to them about Masterminding.
I also got an insiders tour of the Pentagon which was really cool. Here’s just a part of the hallway.
This event was sponsored by American Dream U, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to help our soldiers re-career out of the military as they enter civilian life.
It’s the brainchild of my good friend Phil Randazzo. More on him in a minute.
Here we are doing a “press conference” at The Pentagon:
I spoke about a lot of things at Fort Myer but the one thing that seemed to resonate the most is also the one thing that Forbes Magazine picked up on too–and I was honored that Forbes arranged to interview me and then printed an article talking about that one thing:
An easy way for anyone to form a Mastermind group.
I believe that this idea is as useful for you as it is for the soldiers…simple yet powerful… and I would love your feedback.
And regarding American Dream U…
Phil Randazzo just wrote a book titled Mission Next about the soldiers he has met along the way…it’s incredibly inspiring…and all proceeds of the book go to help our troops in the program.
I get no affiliate commission nor would I want one.
I hope you will pick up a copy.
P.S. Just one more picture…so I can acknowledge all the amazing entrepreneurs I shared the stage with at Fort Myer…I’d tag them all if this was Facebook…but you’ll just have to trust me that they are all heroes.
And a huge shout out of appreciation to all who serve and sacrifice on this eve of Memorial Day.
Thank a soldier if you see one…or better yet, give one a hug.
