Veteran Entrepreneur Changes the Grooming Game - Johnny Slicks & Nick Koumalatsos
Johnny Slicks was an Armorer in the Marine Corps from 2012 to 2016. He became passionate with grooming products in 2014 but didn’t start hand brewing until 2015. Finding a formula that will not only style hair but promote healthy hair growth became an obsession. It wasn’t until the early months of 2017 when he was able to brew the perfect blend of oils that would set the standard for future products. Johnny Slicks aspires to help and educate everyone through his products and experiences.  Nick and Johnny talk shop, business, and the Marine Corps.

How to Sleep Better with Navy Seal Doctor Kirk Parsley
As many of you know who follow me I did not sleep from 2009 to 2014. I started to realize how crucial sleeping was to every aspect of our life! So much so that the first step of happiness in my book Excommunicated Warrior. I was on the Warrior Soul Podcast and Chris read my book and mentioned that I should have a conversation with Doc Parsley about his sleep studies. What a great conversation!

Why YOU should invest in your relationship.
We talk so much about calling your "Battle Buddy" but your true battle buddy should be your significant other. If they are not then that is on you two to develop that relationship so that it can support even the toughest conversations.

MY BOOK EXCOMMUNICATED WARRIOR EXPLAINED
My Book Excommunicated Warrior: https://goo.gl/nCVmD4 (signed copies)  Amazon: https://goo.gl/NZ6GyL    November 1st, 2018 we published my book Excommunicated Warrior: 7 Stages of Transition. I wanted to break it down and give you guys and gals a little bit of history of how it came to be. As well as what the book is actually about.  As human beings, we will inevitably go through a life-changing event at some point in our life. It could be losing a job of 20 years, finalizing a divorce, being forced to retire early because of an injury, or leaving the military. These life-changing events can have disastrous effects on us and the people around us. Some of us never work through these events and end up unhappy and stuck in life. This happened to Nick when he left a 12-year career as a Marine Raider with the Marine Corps Special Operations Unit. For years, he was stuck with feelings of anger, indifference, and bitterness. Until he finally decided to take action and apply the skills he learned as a Raider and got to work on solving his personal problems.

Why Hump Day is Bull$h*t!
This life is short, we have to decide the imprint we are going to leave on this Earth. If it’s your thing to just get on the hampster wheel and go around and round until you are put in the dirt then that is your choice. No one wants to hear you complain about why you don’t have something or the fact that your life is not the way you want it. However, If you can just say no to hump day and put yourself on a forward track, then you might just achieve something and have a life actually worth living, instead of just trying to get through your week. https://goo.gl/1NExBd Sponsored By: baboontothemoon.com/ Use code NICK for 10% off your purchase.

The Difference between Marine Recon & Marine Raiders!
This is definitely the most requested podcase I have had. Rightfully so because the history of Reconnaissance and Marine Raiders are so intertwined it can leave someone feeling a bit confused, I have your back. Not only does this video give you my military history, it also gives you the history of Marine Recon and Marine Raiders (MARSOC), the requirements to get into both units, and also some very sound advice from other Recon and Raider Operators. So get some popcorn, grab a notepad, and put your feet up. Enjoy!

Episode 5 US Marines Discuss Shooting At YouTube HQ
I was shocked and extremely upset to hear that an evil person had attacked innocent by standards at Youtube's Headquarters yesterday in San Francisco. I'm wishing the best to the individuals and the families of those injured in yesterday's attack. This was a coward's attempt to spread terror to gain leverage for their political agenda. I hope that everyone and YouTube will look at this objectively and have very educated and intelligent discussions about the situation. The last thing we need is more knee-jerk reactions when discussing gun control and active shooters. This at the root is a people problem, not a gun problem.

With all of this "Marching for our lives" stuff going on I thought it would be right for this Tactical Tuesday if we had a candid conversation about the issues at hand. I'm baffled, confused, and downright dumbfounded that Americans are marching to put their safety and security in the government that they say they don't trust... Using there constitutional right to take away their constitutional right....
