Key Quotes

  1. “Failure is a tool to maximize; not something to be avoided.”
  2. “How can you meet other people’s needs like creating a business using the strength of God’s giving you to make a better impact in this world?”
  3. “There’s no doubt that transitioning from your comfort zone to the unknown is brutal.”
  4.  “I tell a lot of entrepreneurs that entrepreneurship is like being a UFC fighter. Even if you’re the greatest UFC fighter on the planet, they still get punched in the face and they don’t freak out when they get punched in the face. They don’t cry when they get punched in the face. They don’t walk out of the ring. That is part of the job description.”
  5. “I don’t recommend putting yourself in a situation like getting out of the military if you haven’t even started your side hustle yet or without getting a job. You need seed money and a primary source of income while you are working your side hustle because there’s no pain like financial pain.”
  6. “Failure is not an event. It’s a lesson, it’s a tool.  Learn from your mistakes and learn from those around you.”

For 32 years, there has been a motorcycle demonstration on Memorial Day weekend to raise awareness of the critical issues facing our nation’s veterans and demand action for the 82,000 service members missing in action.

On May 24, 2020, the tradition will continue through the Rolling to Remember Challenge. For the first time in ride history, we will also demand action for the 22 veterans who die by suicide each day.

Due to the COVID-19 health crisis and to protect the safety of the riding community, AMVETS announces the Rolling to Remember Ride Challenge in conjunction with REVER, a GPS-based motorcycle app.

Right now, you can go to rolling to remember dot com and sign up for the challenge, support ride efforts, get rolling to remember branded gear, and more. Again that’s rolling to remember dot com. Continue the tradition with us, and we’ll see you in May, 2021.

Don’t forget to leave us a 5-star rating and review if you enjoyed the show. We would love to hear from you!
