Sometimes you meet someone new & the conversation fires on all cylinders; it’s a rare experience, but I can honestly say that’s what it was like to talk to Greg Washington. Greg is the founder of the Iron Sharpens Iron Project & host of the podcast, Guards Down, both of which center around helping veterans unpack & heal from PTSD & Complex Grief. A high-school football prodigy, Greg was recruited to West Point & went on to serve in Iraq & Afghanistan. After leaving the service, he lead what – from the outside – a productive, stable life. He got his MBA… He consulted for major corporations… He started his own tax & accounting business… He was earning a six-figure income… But beneath it all, he was still suffering from his own trauma & loss. This conversation is about pulling out of the nose-dives & the people who help guide us out of them. It’s about the power of patience & the knowledge that it’s not IF you fail, but WHEN. Enjoy.
