Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 61: Unanswered Questions- The Life and Death of Cmdr. Job Price, Commander SEAL Team 4

Commander Job Wilson Price was a graduate of Pottstown High School where he played football and wrestled - taking great pride in his school. Job was an excellent student and was accepted to many prestigious universities, including Yale, but Job wanted to give back through service to his country and made the decision to go to the United States Air Force Academy, cross commissioning into the United States Navy SEALS after he graduated. One of the many things that made my brother exceptional was that he was not only a Navy SEAL, but also a United States Army Ranger.


During his 20-year career Job served a total of 13 deployments to places such as Central and South America, Kosovo, the Middle-East (specifically Iraq and Afghanistan), and Africa, as well as many places we probably don’t know about. Job was assigned to SEAL Teams Two and Four, U.S Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). Job received numerous medals including four Bronze Stars yet he was never one to speak of it. My brother lost his life on December 22 2012 in Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan while serving as the Commander of SEAL Team Four. Job always wanted to belong to the best and be a part of something far greater than oneself. To his credit, he achieved those goals.


Job's death was "officially" ruled a suicide, however after further investigation in the 7 years since his death, there are more questions than answers as it relates to the nature of his death and how it was handled by the Navy. In the years since his death in 2012, there have been numerous confirmed reports of systemic corruption and criminality within the SEAL community. This podcast was designed to bring to light Job's amazing life, his service to our great nation and the serious concern over the validity of the "official cause of death" and how the US Navy handled it. The vast majority of all the heroic men and women who serve our great nation are worthy of the praise and recognition they deserve. However, it appears as if a small segment of the US Navy SEAL community is bringing a negative light onto an otherwise prideful community of dedicated war-fighters. We honor those who served honorably and only wish to expose those who did not.

Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 76: Rocks for L.E.O.

In June of 2017 my husband found a painted rock outside a local business. He brought it home and we looked up the FB page that was written on the back. It was from a local rock painting group that paints rocks and leaves them outside businesses for people to find. All with the purpose to spread kindness or make someone smile. Almost immediately we started painting and dropping rocks all over town. A couple months later I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to paint some Back the Blue rocks and leave them outside our local departments, and possibly even hand them to LEOs we see out and about? I asked the girls and they loved the idea. We painted two rocks to start. In August we took the first rock up to our Sheriff. We told him we wanted to show our thanks and appreciation for all they do, and all about our plan to start painting more rocks. The second rock we prayed that God would help us find the right deputy or officer for our rock. We wanted to give it to someone who needed it, or would appreciate it, you know, the right person! It took 2 months (it’s now October) actively looking while running errands until we found a deputy. Actually he found us as he had been in our neighborhood taking care of some business. We stopped him before he could leave and gave it to him. We couldn’t have asked for a better officer to receive our rock. Not only did we become fast friends with him and his family, but he’s the kind of friend you think of as family. He even helped us be able to visit our local precinct to hand out rocks during roll call one morning, which was truly an awesome experience! We loved surprising all of the deputies. We started painting more rocks to hand out whenever we would see a LEO out and about on the road (We always make sure to keep some in the car with us)! We’ve visited with several other departments nearby as well. The girls LOVE meeting LEOs! They ask me at least twice a week, “Are we going to any departments today?” Good thing there are a lot of departments out there! In February 2018, I thought “I should Google small town departments” and see what I can come up with. I was hoping to surprise them with our rocks. I thought it would be nice for them to know they are thought of and appreciated, even from far away. We found a 4 person department in Michigan. They loved the rocks so much they sent us a patch, their cards, and a bottle of maple syrup that is made right there in their town! So we kept looking for more departments. We have found small departments, big departments, and everything in between. We started painting and shipping rocks all over the states! We started posting on social media asking for people to nominate their favorite departments to receive our rocks. Our list grew to over 60 departments across the states within a couple hours of putting out the message! Since then we’ve continued to grow, our waiting-to-be-rocked list is multiple pages long, and we have sent rocks to 3,516 LEOs (as of February 27, 2020). 3,516!!! Over 3,500 LEOs know that they are supported, thought of, prayed for, appreciated, and THANKED by our family. Most days it leaves me speechless when I think about what we have been able to do for LEOs. We’ve reached so many, yet we have so many more to reach! Did I mention dispatchers? We try to include dispatchers as much as we can, with their own rocks featuring the thin gold line. We want to make sure they know they are appreciated as well! So that’s our story. It’s currently still being written, as we have no plans of stopping anytime soon! We are so thankful for our LEOs & dispatchers, and so thankful we are able to do this for them. Our rocks have blessed us with many friendships in real life and through social media. I can’t even express to you what that means to us. Thank you Blue! Be safe & ROCK ON! Your friends in Maryland, -RocksForLEOs

Two Dates and a Dash Episode 69: Author of NY Times Best Selling Book, Alone at Dawn and sister of Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, USAF Master Sgt. John Chapman

In the predawn hours of March 4, 2002, just below the 10,469-foot peak of a mountain in eastern Afghanistan, a fierce battle raged. Outnumbered by Al Qaeda fighters, Air Force Combat Controller John Chapman and a handful of Navy SEALs struggled to take the summit in a desperate bid to find a lost teammate. Chapman, leading the charge, was gravely wounded in the initial assault. Believing he was dead, his SEAL leader ordered a retreat. Chapman regained consciousness alone, with the enemy closing in on three sides. John Chapman's subsequent display of incredible valor -- first saving the lives of his SEAL teammates and then, knowing he was mortally wounded, single-handedly engaging two dozen hardened fighters to save the lives of an incoming rescue squad -- posthumously earned him the Medal of Honor. Chapman is the first airman in nearly fifty years to be given the distinction reserved for America's greatest heroes. Alone at Dawn is also a behind-the-scenes look at the Air Force Combat Controllers: the world's deadliest and most versatile special operations force, whose members must not only exceed the qualifications of Navy SEAL and Army Delta Force teams but also act with sharp decisiveness and deft precision -- even in the face of life-threatening danger. Drawing from firsthand accounts, classified documents, dramatic video footage, and extensive interviews with leaders and survivors of the operation, Alone at Dawn is the story of an extraordinary man's brave last stand and the brotherhood that forged him.

You and I might not have met in person, but I know quite a bit about what you’re going through with your business and life right now. Let’s admit it, life isn’t so easy but it’s “suppose” to be right?! I know what the stress of being a man, husband, father and business professional feels like. Balancing a happy family with a successful business can be a struggle. That feeling of unease when you’re spending time with your family, but constantly thinking about what you need to get done at work. Or when you’re working, but you’re feeling the guilt of not being the husband or father you REALLY want to be or giving them the quality time they want. And personal goals, free time and feeling FULFILLED in life, well that gets put on a shelf to collect dust. It becomes a cycle that never ends. I’m hear to tell you that there is a better way! After years of struggling myself, I discovered a SYSTEM that the majority of men have zero clue about but has exponential impact. Ever since, I have used this formula to teach men like you, who as a result, have transformed themselves, their incomes and lives. So in summary, I’ll teach you how to transform yourself into a PROFIT-MULTIPLYING POWERHOUSE with my 3P System: Profits – Power – Passion!

Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 61: Unanswered Questions- The Life and Death of Cmdr. Job Price, Commander SEAL Team 4

Commander Job Wilson Price was a graduate of Pottstown High School where he played football and wrestled - taking great pride in his school. Job was an excellent student and was accepted to many prestigious universities, including Yale, but Job wanted to give back through service to his country and made the decision to go to the United States Air Force Academy, cross commissioning into the United States Navy SEALS after he graduated. One of the many things that made my brother exceptional was that he was not only a Navy SEAL, but also a United States Army Ranger.


During his 20-year career Job served a total of 13 deployments to places such as Central and South America, Kosovo, the Middle-East (specifically Iraq and Afghanistan), and Africa, as well as many places we probably don’t know about. Job was assigned to SEAL Teams Two and Four, U.S Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). Job received numerous medals including four Bronze Stars yet he was never one to speak of it. My brother lost his life on December 22 2012 in Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan while serving as the Commander of SEAL Team Four. Job always wanted to belong to the best and be a part of something far greater than oneself. To his credit, he achieved those goals.


Job's death was "officially" ruled a suicide, however after further investigation in the 7 years since his death, there are more questions than answers as it relates to the nature of his death and how it was handled by the Navy. In the years since his death in 2012, there have been numerous confirmed reports of systemic corruption and criminality within the SEAL community. This podcast was designed to bring to light Job's amazing life, his service to our great nation and the serious concern over the validity of the "official cause of death" and how the US Navy handled it. The vast majority of all the heroic men and women who serve our great nation are worthy of the praise and recognition they deserve. However, it appears as if a small segment of the US Navy SEAL community is bringing a negative light onto an otherwise prideful community of dedicated war-fighters. We honor those who served honorably and only wish to expose those who did not.

Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 57: Speaker, Author and Sexual Assault Survivor, Pix Jonasson

What do you see when you think of a woman who is Passionate, Inspirational and Exciting … you see Pix Jonasson! We are very pleased to share this talk time today with Pix and to learn how she uses her ideals of flexibility and freedom to live a successful life.

Rising above personal and professional challenges always requires fortitude – so, when it came to establishing a theme for her branding, Pix found, for her, that courage was the common denominator. Hence, with a clever play on words, the term ‘Couragepreneur’ was born and this has become the flagship of her business.

Our lively discussion with Pix gives valuable life-lessons from her views on mental and physical well-being and how maintaining a focus on goals, self-discipline and personal connections can bring about fabulous successes.

Put simply, success doesn’t come easily. Cultivating a thriving business is not a 9-5 job – the hard yards have to be put in to get the rewards. Across her podcasts, social media and her book ‘Think And Get Rich After Hours’ (due out in 2020) she reinforces this inspirational message

Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 55: 11 year NFL vet, philanthropist and entrepreneur, Todd Herremans

Selected in the fourth round of the 2005 draft pick out of Saginaw Valley State by the Philadelphia Eagles, Herremans played in 127 regular-season games (124 starts) and eight playoff games (all starts) as an Eagle, spanning the positions of left tackle, left guard, and right tackle. Herremans started four games at left tackle after former Pro Bowler Tra Thomas went down with a back injury late in the 2005 season. The Eagles moved Herremans to left guard in 2006, where he started all 16 games. He signed a five-year contract extension after the season after being part of an offensive line that allowed just 28 sacks in 2006, the fewest for the Eagles since 1981.
When Herremans caught his November 2, 2008, touchdown pass against the Seattle Seahawks, he became the first offensive lineman for the Eagles to catch a touchdown pass since 1934, the franchise's second season. A left guard from 2006 to 2010, the Eagles move Herremans to right tackle for the 2011 season, and to right guard in 2013, where he spent his final two years with the Eagles. Herremans played his final season with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015.
Herremans had 124 career starts over the course of 10 seasons, which ranks him sixth all-time among Eagles' offensive lineman. He is the only offensive lineman in franchise history to register two touchdown receptions (one-yard pass from QB Donovan McNabb in 2008 and a two-yard pass from Michael Vick in 2010).
In 2012, Herremans founded The Herremans Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that provides resources and help for various charitable organizations, to effect positive change in local, national and global communities.
Since retiring from the NFL, Herremans helped co-found Athletes For CARE, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating a community where all athletes can find support, opportunity, and purpose in life following a career in sports. Herremans is an advocate for medicinal cannabis as one of many wellness alternatives to traditional forms of pain management such as opioids, to treat chronic pain and sports-related injuries

Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 54: Speaker, Life Coach, Mentor and Founder of Me Inc. Now, Charles Prinzen

Where I am now is no coincidence to where I have been, yes, I am a survivor! What have I survived, not war, not physical disabilities, but cycles of life. My story of abuse is no different than many others who have experienced abuse, the same torment, pain, feelings of loneliness and despair. So, the big question is why did I change? My journey from nothingness to a fulfilling life was not altered by one specific event, but a series of events over many years, change came one thought at a time. It was not till I was older that I could clearly see the past; they say that hindsight is twenty-twenty, mine was not, it was blurry. The first step to seeing the past clearly was when a kindhearted gift of love was given to me by a stranger. A stranger that chose to pull me into her household and show me that you can eat and sleep and play without fear, that you can share feeling with others, and that a hug is the best way to express how you feel about someone. This was something new to me, perhaps I was scared not knowing what was ahead as the only cycle of living I knew was ugliness. At the age of nine I tasted hard liquor for the first time. I knew what a broom handle felt like across my back, how my skin would react when hit from an open hand. Age sixteen I was enrolled in my twenty-fifth public school and this is the age where I found myself running away, not just from home, but everything. It is here where my transformation really begins. This is when I was first shown how a home should be, full of love. It took me a long time to realize that my opportunityfor change had been there, right there, all I had to do was to want it. Perhaps it is best of me to offer an analogy as to how my change occurred. If you think about life cycles, they are round and usually end up at the same point over and over, like a race track. When your cycle of life is good, there is no need to search for an off-ramp, you’re’already going down the “right” path. When on the wrong cycle of life for so long, the exits can become obscured due to hopelessness, you can only find an exit if you really want to change. I wanted to change and found an exit, I took the “right” turn to something better. Taking the “right” turn was very difficult to do, I realized, with time, that to set a new cycle of life I would have to clear up the past. Emotionally, I set my mind on forgiving the past and those who had hurt me. Standing at my step-father’s grave, I forgave him, it took every ounce of emotional strength that I had to do this, and I was completely drained of all energy. Immediately afterward, I felt something,something anew, the wheels of my life cycles had started to make the turn. As I reflect upon my cycles of life, the cycles of ugliness were clearly evident,the most obvious to me was with my biological father. I did not see him, hear from him, or have anycontact with him at all. I did not know from where I came or who I was, intellectually, emotionally, or physically. I quickly realized that Iwas doing the same to my daughter, cycles repeating cycles. Continuing forward I was going to do everything in my power to break this cycle, and I did. I re-connected with my daughter, provided financial and emotional support, and broke this cycle. Once this cycle had broken, others fell like dominos. My new cycles of life are extraordinary, a complete reversal of what my past had been. I ran a successful auto carrier company for twenty plus years. I worked my way up in this industry to become a union steward helping many other drivers find the success that I have had. Throughout this process the cycles of ugliness continued to be broken, so much so I wanted to give to others when I no longer was a truck driver. Knowing that my cycles of ugliness were mostly in my youth, this is where I sought to intervene. I interviewed for a position as a campus supervisor at a high school in northern California, and got it. Still I, working at a campus where I had only faltered as a young person, seemed to be ironic. So I started, one student at a time, shared my stories, my fears, and my successes. Students began to listen and identify their own cycles of ugliness, perhaps a few had found the “right” turn off that cycle. As a campus supervisor I saw a need for someone to be an advocate for youth, someone to help them see their own past clearly. I started a public speaking entity knows as Me.Inc. Now®, “me expressing I need change now”. It is my principal goal to help instill self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect in today’s youth. Today, after choosing to make a change in my life, I am there for my grandchildren’s needs, I have established positive relationships with long lost family members, I embrace the chance, once again, to be a father to my daughter and a grand father to my grandchildren. I am thankful for the opportunity to share my story with others, I am thankful for what I now have. Most importantly, I am thankful for learning that “love” is most the powerful tool in my emotional toolbox. I did it, I had changed for the better, no more thought of sorrow and loneliness, no more bruises, no more pain, no more fear.

Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 31: Author, Keynote Speaker, Corporate Operations Strategist, Michael Huggins

He always followed the rules, never rocked the boat, and everyone called him "Saint Michael" growing up. He got his MBA from Wharton, became a successful CEO, and then... he went to prison. 

In a behind-the-scenes look at life in a men’s correctional facility, Going Om is the story of the man least likely to end up behind bars. Follow his journey of learning how to survive away from his family in the dog-eat-dog culture of prison, and the struggles of returning to his community later on. Huggins shares both alarming and surprisingly funny stories, emails that he had sent from prison, and lessons learned during the dimmest days of his life. 

Struggling to cope in a world where he did not belong, Huggins turned to the practice of yoga for strength and direction. Before long, “Yogi Mike” had a following of inmates seeking his help with physical fitness, anger management, and everything in between. Hard personal truths were realized through his challenging experiences on the inside, true clarity came, and ultimately transformation into living an authentic life. 

Michael remains active in teaching yoga in prisons, as seen in the Huffington Post, as well as CBS, FOX and NBC News affiliates. He is a frequent speaker on self-empowerment and the power of yoga for rediscovering your true self. He is a contributor to several books focused on best practices for teaching trauma informed yoga to underserved populations.

Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 30: Brand Ambassador, Coach and Consultant, Ryon Anderson, Esq.

Imagine waking up in complete darkness. You’re 11 years old. You don’t know where you are. You don’t know why you can’t see. You don’t know what’s wrong?

Strength comes from walking through the flames of setback and failure, and emerging on the other side singed but stronger, wiser, and more complete. After losing his vision and almost dying from an illness at 11 Ryon Anderson went on to obtain a BS in Psychology, MS in Counseling Psychology, and a law degree from Texas Tech School of law. He is a business consultant and professional speaker.

Before losing his vision, Ryon’s dream was to be an NFL quarterback. He dedicated his young life to achieving that dream. That dream was ripped away! His identity as an intellectual stud athlete was gone! Who was he? Ryon spent years reclaiming his confidence and identity. He struggled with why anyone would choose him over a sighted person. So much of his self worth was wrapped up in physical prowess. Eventually he came to realize physical competition has an expiration date while intellectual competition is a lifelong game! Through success in the intellectual arena Ryon regained his former confidence and gained a deeper appreciation of life, self worth, and self identity. He realized that the only limits one truly has are the limits one creates. Ryon’s passion is helping people overcome life’s challenges by helping them strengthen their mindset.

Two Dates and a Dash Episode 1: "Long Road Home" star - US Army SGM (ret.) Reginald Butler

Sergeant Major Reginald Wayne Butler, U.S. Army, a native of Oklahoma, graduated from McAlester High School in 1992. He received a B.S. in business from Mount Saint Mary College in Newburg, New York in 2007; an M.B.A. in information technology management from Trident University International in Cypress, California, in 2010; and is currently pursuing a D.B.A. in leadership from Walden University, Minneapolis, Minnesota. 
He was raised in poverty by a single mother of five children, who had a loving heart and faced many obstacles but never complained. She blessed Butler with a warm heart, good manners, and inspired him to follow his passion and intuition. As a child, Butler had behavioral problems, a speech impediment and was fitted with leg braces. Numerous Pediatric Doctors informed his mother that he would never be able to run or overcome the fear and tension in stuttering. Kids called him names such as Frankenstein and Stutterbox until the age of 9 when he decided to overcome his challenges. Butler removed the leg braces, tossed them in a dumpster, and took off running, very much similar to Forrest Gump. By the 4th grade, Butler was the fastest kid in elementary school and later went on to win Regionals in track and field. Butler attended speech therapy throughout middle school, and he now enjoys inspiring people to overcome their obstacles and fears. 

In 1991, toward the end of his junior year of high school, Butler joined the Oklahoma Army National Guard as an Infantrymen. He was the only African American in a 240-man company and had to overcome adversities related to racial discrimination but maintained a positive state of mind. Butler continued to break down obstacles within the organization and sought out the presence of younger soldiers who trusted him, believed in equal opportunity, and practiced dignity and respect. Butler found the resiliency to overcome the boundaries set before him and knew after graduating from High School the military life was going to be his destiny. 
During his 25-year military career, Butler achieved the highest enlisted rank of Sergeant Major. He completed the rigorous U.S. Army Ranger School in 1998, which is the Army’s most rigorous course related to premier small unit tactics and leadership. In 2001, Butler accomplished the Bradley Master Gunner course, to become a trained expert on the weapon systems housed within military fighting vehicles. He values the attribute of leading from the front and ultimately gained the respect of his subordinates. Butler deployed to the Middle East, the Pacific, Europe and Continental U.S. stations. 
During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Butler was a platoon sergeant of the Army’s First Cavalry Division from Fort Hood, Texas, when a platoon-size element was ambushed in Sadr City, Baghdad, on April 4, 2004, also known as “Black Sunday.” Eight soldiers were killed and more than 70 injured during the attack. Butler’s Humvee gunner paid the ultimate sacrifice, and 17 out of 37 soldiers in his platoon were severely wounded. Butler had the hardest hit platoon with 20 soldiers remaining in the fight. His unit remained in sustained combat for 80 consecutive days. 
Butler is portrayed in the National Geographic Channel’s “The Long Road Home,” an eight-part miniseries based on journalist Martha Raddatz’s 2007 book of the same title. He was mentioned on several occasions including one during which the Secretary of Defense recognized Butler in a lecture to more than 5,000 cadets and faculty members at the U.S. Military Academy in 2008 as a hero with real-world experience and wisdom in and out of the classroom. He has a passion for helping military members and people around the world to find their inner abilities to overcome daily challenges and to live a healthy, memorable and appealing lifestyle. 
Butler seeks to inspire, motivate and challenge audiences to lead an authentic and inspired life.
