I've learned a lot over the years.  I've made mistakes that I didn't think I could recover from.  All of it has humbled me and made me appreciate this journey.

 Life is a journey with problems to solve, choices to make and things to learn.  

I want to share my experiences, wisdom and challenges with you.  

I'm an American griot. I am also internationally known as the Black Man with a Gun (TM).  Thanks for listening, downloading and subscribing to this show.  I'm hoping to entertain, inspire and make you smarter from the things I've done and still trying to do. 

I'm into fishing, motorcycles, cigars, family, music, guitars, guns and typical "man stuff."  If you are, come join me here. 

It's not all old stuff either.  I'm here to learn and grow.

One of the things we don’t do is listen more to the wisemen in our lives.  There are grandparents, and uncles that have accumulated a wealth of knowledge over their lifetimes.  Podcasting is an excellent way to capture that wisdom.  It’s not easy because not everything they say is for everybody. And not everything they say is gold.  But on this weeks episode I have a guest that is golden.  We spoke for awhile and when he got comfortable he dropped some nuggets.  

 

I didn’t know him personally before this episode.  I have heard of him for decades.  He is going to talk about the keys to success-Sleep.  He is going to talk about using caffeine effectively, how to sleep better, about church security, the Second Amendment, gun rights, the role and title of a Sheepdog, about self discipline and resilience.  This grandfather is going to give some parenting 101 advice.  And he is even going to talk about faith. And the importance of it.  

 

Listen to this sage speaks.  You are going to thank me for this episode.  My guest is retired U.S. Army Lt. Col David Grossman.

Dave has five patents to his name, has published four novels, two children’s’ books, and six non-fiction books to include his “perennial bestseller” On Killing  (with over half a million copies sold).Since his retirement from the US Army in 1998, he has been on the road almost 300 days a year, for over 19 years, as one of our nation’s leading trainers for military, law enforcement, mental health providers, and school safety organizations.

He is a US Army Ranger, a paratrooper, and a former West Point Psychology Professor.  He has a Black Belt in Hojutsu, the martial art of the firearm, and has been inducted into the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame.
