Ben Killoy is a U.S. Marine Veteran turned blogger, life coach, speaker, and podcaster whose mission is to bring Military Veteran Dads home to their families. He resides in Janesville, WI, with his wife and three beautiful kids. Ben went through what most transitioning veterans go through, the feeling of needing to redefine their identity outside of the structure of the military and rediscovering your passion and purpose for life. A seminar changed it all for him and allowed him to discover his passion for leadership and helping other veterans and Dads be the best parents they can. Since that seminar he has been on a mission to master leadership principles and use his passion for leadership to help dads understand who they are, develop their skills to overcome adversity, and to own their life choices to enable them to truly come home to their families. Ben’s podcast combines his own insights into his unique experiences with the military and fatherhood, along with interviews and discussions with other thought-leaders from around the world. The fact that Ben’s insights are based on his personal experiences, and the experiences of the other veterans he interviews gives credibility to his understandings. Sharing both his successes and failures brings a more heart centered approach to his podcast, enabling a deeper connection to his audience. Ben is available for speaking engagements, both online and in person, and is more than happy to share his insights on other veteran’s podcasts.
Do you ever feel like you have tunnel vision in life? We get so caught up in the race of life we often never slow down to really see where we are heading.  It becomes all about the next thing, the next vacation, the car.  COVID has forced a lot of people to really take an inventory of where they were headed.  David Pere asked some of those same questions while he was serving and looked at the choices people were making ahead of him after retirement and said that is not the path I choose.  Through that choice, he found a passion for real estate investing and now has a platform to help others navigate this road and understand what they need to know.  Topics Covered: Real Estate Investing Putting your money to work Breaking free from expectations Your network determines your net worth Using masterminds to change your thinking Why travel is important Helping kids understand how they fit into this world Coming home after a deployment Creating clarity in your life Understand failure How to connect with guest Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1735593999901619/ YouTube: https://bit.ly/37wVlPE Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/frommilitarytomillionaire/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/military_to Website: https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/ Thank you for Listening to the Episode!

Do you hide your life stories from your kids? Veterans live a very rich life, we have stories, we have the depth to our views, and we know how to connect with others.  But on the other side of transition, we often don't see how life was happening for us and how we might be able to help others who went down a similar way.  We do this often becomes we are ashamed, worried of being judged, and afraid of what "they might think" of us after they really know my story.  Gloria Rendon has a story that has driven her to do more and be more in her life. She has worked as an advocate for clients with mental health and substance use disorders for nearly a decade. She has progressive experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

I speak about a message I received on Instagram from a young teenager, who said "I miss my dad."
