Veteran’s Day 2017: Looking for a few good Marines to teach Entrepreneurship!12 Nov

Happy Veteran’s Day Message: Join us in teaching Heroic Leadership, the best book about transitioning counterinsurgency to entrepreneurship
On Veterans Day, I was at a entrepreneurship conference in Orange County with a fellow Marine and entrepreneurship teacher. I asked our speaker, “What is the best book for translating Iraq/ Afghanistan counterinsurgency lessons to entrepreneurship?” I would offer the answer: Heroic Leadership by Chris Lowney (see Amazon link, below), because:
1. It was used by Marines like LtGen Toolan, USMC, to train Marines for COIN (counterinsurgency) in OEF (Afghanistan)
2. Ignatius, the first Jesuit CEO/ General, founded arguably the most successful global corporation, which now includes 26 US Universities, and 200+ global universities; not to mention hundreds more high schools, including my own, Saint Ignatius Prep, San Francisco.
If you are a Marine in San Diego (or the internet), reach out to me if you are interested in teaching Heroic Leadership at Jesuit educational institutions, globally, and I will be glad to buy you a copy of Lowney, Heroic Leadership for the price of your time at a meal (or a Google Hangout/ Facebook live video conference; notably, Ignatius got high “return on luck” for starting his endeavor at the same time as the printing press; and we Marines now will take advantage of the connectivity revolution to teach Heroic Leadership in the megacity target markets, which Gen Krulak Jr USMC, through the platform of the SJ schools).
The best times of my life and the best jobs I ever had were: #1 teaching/ coaching wrestling at Bellarmine Prep, San Jose, CA; #2 being a Rifle Company XO/ Weapons Platoon CO, and Fire Support Team leader in Lima 3/7, RCT 7, 1stMarDiv, IMEF, FMF PAC. Happy Birthday, Marines! and Happy Veterans Day; SF, AMDG, JJW
