On May 24 & 25, 2019, I hosted my 17K Inner Circle Champion Mastermind Club Event in West Palm Beach, Florida.  We had Members from Florida, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Ohio in attendance. 

These business owners and entrepreneurs are highly motivated professionals that relentlessly pursue the American Dream and believe in every American’s right to live freely in our great nation.

However, we all know that freedom isn’t free.  Men and women have died protecting our freedom, and their families sacrificed immeasurably so that we could continue to live free.

Since our 17K Club event was on Memorial Day weekend, we paid tribute to the fallen soldiers that paid the ultimate sacrifice…

On Friday evening after the event, we stopped by Rock Elite Fitness gym to visit the Honor Wall, which is a memorial to military, police, firefighters, and first responders. Thanks to Jason at Rock Elite Fitness for featuring these heroes in his gym!

The first framed photo was Special Operations Chief (Navy SEAL) Aaron Carson Vaughn, who was KIA on August 6th, 2011 when a chopper carrying 30 Americans was shot down in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan while rushing into battle. You will see Aaron’s photo directly to the right of the mural with a gold mat and black frame.

We have a responsibility to the fallen warriors like Aaron to live a life of greatness and strive for excellence in everything that we do including building our businesses. Anything less would be a disservice to these great heroes.

Now, I challenge you to ask yourself this question daily…

Am I honoring America with my life and business?

Generations of warriors have fought for our freedom and paved the way for us to live the American Dream so commit to living up to your potential and never settling for mediocrity.
