How I went from unprepared "unsure where to start" to helping thousands of people just like myself keep themselves, their families, and loved ones safe.

Before there was a Mind4Survival podcast.

Before becoming an Army Ranger, paramedic, and international security director. Before gaining the confidence and ability to keep others safe… there was an unprepared "head buried in the sand" Brian.

Lacking confidence.

Totally unprepared.

Too overwhelmed to know where to start and too in need of time and money get very far if I did.

How I went from unprepared "unsure where to start" to helping thousands of people just like myself keep themselves, their families, and loved ones safe.

Before there was a Mind4Survival podcast.

Before becoming an Army Ranger, paramedic, and international security director. Before gaining the confidence and ability to keep others safe… there was an unprepared "head buried in the sand" Brian.

Lacking confidence.

Totally unprepared.

Too overwhelmed to know where to start and too in need of time and money get very far if I did.

Ambulances, Rangers, and Way Too Many Detours...

I didn’t walk the easy path into preparedness.

While, my fantastic journey saw me saving lives as a paramedic on the streets of Los Angeles, serving as a member of the US Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment, running hundreds of successful high threat security missions with Blackwater in Iraq, and overseeing thousands as an international security director…

The route to becoming prepared to face adversity was anything but “fantastic.”

During my trek, I was continuously detoured by a chronic case of "I’m not sure where to start, but I’m going to buy as much gear as possible" syndrome, and an endless sense of overwhelm that made everything seem so much worse than it should.

And when I finally did start to get the road to preparedness figured out…

... I quickly realized:

"I'm on the wrong path"

It Definitely Wasn't What I Thought It Would Be

I didn’t just figure it out one day and find myself with the confidence to stare down a grizzly bear.

Every step forward was met with two steps back worth of uncertainty, wasted time and an uneasy feeling in my gut that I wasn’t doing enough.

Lots of hours invested with little progress in return.

Difficult conversations with friends and family, trying to convince them to work on our safety, security, and preparedness together.

Amazed that people make fun of those like me, simply because I value my time on earth, so I find ways to increase my odds.

Wasted money.

A closet full of untested Amazon purchases.

And a network of like-minded people so small, I could count them on one hand.

And when I finally did start to get the road to preparedness figured out:

I realized I was on the wrong road.

Frustrating myself by watching YouTube video’s, which should make sense, but are confusing and contradicts each other.

When in reality, I knew that I was just making detours for myself that made the safety and security of myself, my family, and friends fall by the wayside.

 

So, I said enough is enough.

Every step forward was met with two steps back worth of uncertainty, wasted time and an uneasy feeling in my gut that I wasn’t doing enough.

Lots of hours invested with little progress in return.

Awkward conversations with friends and family, trying to convince them to work on our safety, security, and preparedness together.

Frustrating myself by reading books, which should make sense, but are confusing and contradict each other.

When in reality, I knew that I was making detours for myself that made the safety and security of myself, my family, and friends fall by the wayside.

 

So, I said enough is enough.

I realized that becoming more safe, secure, and self-reliant was NOT difficult, nor overwhelming.

That, in fact, it just needed a mindset shift. So, I reached back into my past and thought about all of my experiences. I realized that:

  • How to apply the incredible amount of education, training, and real-world experience in protecting myself and others.
  • How vital a positive, flexible, and realistic mindset is to our confidence and overall success.
  • How to help others expand their situational awareness mindset, so that they are ready when facing life’s trying challenges.

 

And after all that, I was zeroed in…

I understood how to simplify and enhance those efforts so that I would never have to hear someone say they just don’t know what to do next.

The most remarkable part of it all…

I’ve now had the privilege of helping thousands of people and families like you avoid the preparedness struggle and find the confidence and ability to keep themselves, their families, and friends protected when they need it most.

How?

 

One Step at a Time.

One Step at a Time.

Through the years, I’ve grown a name for myself by taking what others complicate and confuse…

…and make it easy and understandable.

By checking my ego, the doom and gloom, and the politics at the door, I’m able to focus on the fundamentals that give you the confidence and skills to get and keep you and your family safe, secure, and prepared without going broke or crazy in the process.

I’ve shown others who have the desire to be prepared for future challenges, not only how to get prepared, but how to GET PREPARED BETTER than that supposed expert who never constantly reminds you that the end is coming and tells you about his plans to survive the apocalypse in the woods.

 

I'm able to do this because it's the life I've led and it's what I know.

 

I teach what I’ve personally done to stay safe and survive decades in many challenging and violent countries around the globe. What I teach doesn’t require any special backgrounds, a lot of time, or a 7-figure bank account.

A Little Something About Me

Grew up as a surfer kid in Southern California.

I'm an OWNER of the Green Bay Packers! (GO PACK GO!)

Can’t get enough of the Joe Rogan Podcast and crime dramas.

Bacon, eggs, and a cup of really strong coffee is the best way to start the day! 

I fell 35' from a Blackhawk helicopter to the jungle floor and walked away. 

Life is best spent in flip-flops.
