This Friday, we’ll be talking with Patrick Shearon, founder of supply chain project leadership company, North Sky Leaders. Though his background as a USMC Logistics Officer got him an early start in this field, Patrick attributes much of his success to the principles he learned and practiced at USNA. Join us to learn more about the field of supply chain management, founding a company, and how USNA set him up for success. He’s got an inspirational message as well as client cases to share–you DO NOT want to miss this!

Welcome to the new season of The New ’96 Hour! We’ve got a booming season ahead with a great lineup of guests, and we start with a powerhouse: Joe Crandall. He’s the owner & CEO of a fully veteran-operated consulting company, and he also works behind the scenes to make Veteran Shark Tank the premier pitch competition for veteran entrepreneurs. Join us to learn more about his story, the highs and lows of running a consultancy, and how he’s made “veteran-owned and veteran-operated” into a force multiplier for growing veterans and growing business.

From Jenn: Hey classmates, I’ve been working on something for my business that I’d love your help with. After 15 years of coaching and training leaders for companies and agencies, I’ve finally launched an open-enrollment program that anyone can join. It’s called Project Arete Leadership, and in the course of 6 months, my faculty, coaches, and I will be teaching leaders how to realize the full potential of their team. It will be a truly transformative experience. I’m offering full scholarships for up to three nonprofit leaders in the inaugural cohort that begins June 23rd. Applications for the scholarships are due on Monday, June 7th. Registration for the event ends June 9th (there are 14 spaces available still).

Here’s the help I’d love from you:

  • If you know of a nonprofit leader who might be a good fit for the program, please forward this link to them.
  • If you’re interested in sponsoring scholarships for nonprofit leaders, please check out this link, too. I’m committed to this work and am willing to fully fund them myself–and I’d also love the help of other committed leaders and organizations. And the more support we have, the more scholarships we can offer, the more good we can do!

Thanks so much for your support–of me, of our fellow classmates, and of those who want to do good in the world.

Mark Mhley takes “mission-driven” to a new level. On Friday, March 26th, we get to hear from Mark about two big transitions: the first from active duty into civilian life, and the second from one business venture to another. The pivot in his business is an extraordinary one, led by both an evaluation of the market and a steady commitment to his purpose. If you’ve struggled with the balancing act of making the “smart” decision with staying true to yourself, ideally hoping to make the “right” decision, you’ll want to join us! Mark faced down fear and uncertainty, built connections, and found fulfillment and success on a very different path than the one he started on. Learn more about how he made the difficult decisions required to execute such a shift.

You can’t miss this event on Friday! Whether you want to transition into a new role or sector, or you have entertained entrepreneurial ideas, you’ll want to join me as I interview Eddie Buckles Jr for the New ’96 Hour. Eddie’s track record is incredible. He has held a wide range of roles and has started companies across multiple sectors, and when we talk on February 26, he’ll be sharing his insights on how his Naval Academy and active duty experience set him up for success.

On Friday, 25 Sep, at 1pm ET, Harrison Schramm will be our first guest of the 2020-21 season of the New ’96 Hour. While on active duty, Harrison (then, a helo pilot) entered the realm of Operations Research at NPS and has made it his full-time pursuit since retiring in 2016. What’s Operations Research? I’m glad you asked, and…you’ll have to tune in to learn more! Harrison will be sharing his insights on how to get people to believe your model, listen to you, and follow your recommendations.

Join us to hear Harrison talk on the subject of Persuasion: Bridging the Gap between Analysis and Policy by registering (ahead of time) here. Sure, you can stream the recording when it’s over, but for Q&A, you’ve got to be *LIVE.* I know you’ve got questions, so we look forward to seeing you then!

If you haven’t seen Kim’s latest publication, which ran online/in RealClear Policy on 26 August, please check it out here. Great article, Kim!

Executive summary: Most workers have never been faced with the prospect of re-training for entirely new roles and industries to remain economically relevant – and employed. However, there is a segment of our economy for whom re-skilling – and reinvention – is commonplace. In the military, lifelong learning is part of the mission. For the 80 percent of active-duty military retire or leave the military before full retirement eligibility, reinventing themselves to thrive in “second” or even “third” careers is a way of life.
