He went on to found GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network) in 1990, the first national organization dedicated to fighting anti-LGBTQ bias in K-12 schools.

Most recently he served as an Executive Producer of the 2019 PBS documentary The Lavender Scare, which details the McCarthy-era witch hunts for LGBTQ people, and the 2020 HBO documentary Welcome to Chechnya, which documents the ongoing horrific pogrom against LGBTQ people in the Russian Republic of Chechnya and was short-listed for the 2021 Academy Award for Best Documentary.

How to Start Government Contracting to Build Wealth with Kevin Jennings

The Military Millionaire Podcast

Episode: 170 Kevin Jennings Join your host David Pere and Alex Felice in this episode with guest Kevin Jennings as he talks about how anyone is literally one contract away from changing their entire lives when it comes to government contracting. During the interview, Alex asks Kevin if he's an arms dealer or not. Kevin brings up how much of a fan he is of the movie WAR DOGS in reflection to the question. As per Kevin, even without the dealing of weapons part, the movie's precision to real-life government contracting is still accurate. In this episode, Kevin explains how a beginner can get into government contracting, the recession-proof characteristic of government contracting, and how he got started as a government contractor. About Kevin Jennings: Kevin Jennings got into construction in 2008 while recovering from the real estate downturn. While at the time, he wasn't sure if this career would stick… Kevin quickly found success in winning contracts from State and Federal Government agencies. Long story short? Kevin started going through the long, daunting process outlined on the Government website. He didn't understand the jargon-filled documents… Kevin didn't know what the Government was looking for… And he almost ended up on that big old rejection pile. Thankfully, Kevin "figured it out" in just the nick of time, and not only was he financially stable and free for the first time in a long time… Kevin was chosen to work with the NFL! He secured a 10-year contract as a General Contractor and Labor Provider for the Super Bowl. His business was even featured in Rolling Stones Magazine! The BEST part about all of this? It wasn't luck or a fluke, and neither is Kevin a part of some secret government society. This, too, can be EASILY duplicated inside of anyone's business. Outline of the episode: [01:13] Millionaire at 25, bankrupt at 26 [04:00] Why the government uses contractors [08:10] The U.S. doesn't produce most of what it needs [11:29] About the movie WAR DOGS [15:36] How can someone new get into government contracting? [19:50] What is unsexy about building sewer lines?          [25:11] The cost of missing schedules when it comes to transportation and logistics [29:00] If the bad guys are moving fast, the good guys need to move just as fast to keep up with them. [30:34] The government is a reliable customer [38:04] Government contracting is so simple you can't overcomplicate it Resources: Instagram:          https://www.instagram.com/kev_j/?hl=en Discover Your Next Steps To Becoming A Government Certified Business: https://www.thegovernmentcheese.org/sales-page1640788519427 Follow The Military Millionaire Podcast's journey on: Website:              https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/ YouTube:             https://www.youtube.com/c/Frommilitarytomillionaire/ Facebook:           https://www.facebook.com/groups/1735593999901619/ Instagram:          https://www.instagram.com/frommilitarytomillionaire/ Become A War Room Mastermind Group Member: https://military-millionaire-academy.teachable.com/p/the-war-room Grab your book copy of The No B.S.

Episode 8: Kevin Jennings Co-Owner of Urban Food Group


Kevin Jennings, who Co-founded & Co-owns Urban Food Group with his wife Stacey Jennings, takes the audience into his journey starting in the restaurant at age 15.  Kevin met his wife in Atlanta when she was out of college with a Business Accounting Degree. Kevin had a life plan to open a restaurant, and Stacey had worked with small businesses and had restaurant experience as well. Kevin discusses moving on to Charleston in 1995 working in the restaurant business and then to Raleigh in 1998 where they launched Urban Food Group.  Kevin discusses the climb from opening one restaurant to the nine they have now.  He covers how he's had setbacks and failures along the way including restaurants that have failed. But Kevin and Stacey have persevered and now Urban Food Group has nine restaurants in four cities across two states.  In this interview Kevin reveals what the crown jewel restaurant is for Urban Food Group.  He also discusses why so many restaurants fail, and what advice he gives to people who tell him they want to open up a restaurant. Once that is said to him, he asks those people some specific questions.  Kevin also discusses what it's like to co-own a business with your spouse, and how it's worked out, but could be challenging for other couples. He expounds on how he couldn't do the business side without Stacey.  Kevin also gets into what life was like during the pandemic in 2020 when he had to close his restaurants for three months, suffer unavoidable financial losses, and layoff staff.  But Kevin then delves into onboarding some of that staff back, and his hope for Urban Food Group the rest of 2021 as some Covid restrictions have come back.  Lastly he tells us what's on the horizon for both him, Stacey, and Urban Food Group.  Kevin Jennings is a true restauranteur and entrepreneur.  Take a listen to his fascinating story.
