About The First Responders Living Challenge

Tremendous resources are invested to make our first responders highly skilled on the job, but little is invested in tools and tech to help them lead more rewarding lives.

So, we are proposing a Living Challenge to empower the fearless men and women on the front line to look at their personal lives from a fresh new perspective.

The challenge, of course, is to have a life OFF the job better than the life you have ON the job.

For some, this will be easy as they have already achieved a nice work/life balance. But for others, this may well be their biggest challenge ever!

Conviction-Driven Leadership: Knowledge Refines ~ Action Defines…

In times when people are confused, frightened, and need direction your leadership matters. Not lip-service to the word, but the true essence of what it means to lead in times of uncertainty, fear, and forced change.

Charles Darwin said it best, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” Put another way, in this rapidly changing global economy, you either adapt or die.

We are in a time of unprecedented upheaval, a sudden and abrupt change to our way of life due to the hysteria surrounding the COVID19 virus. We must now quickly adapt or find our businesses decimated.
