"How to Succeed in the Civilian World, For Military Veterans"
"How to Succeed in the Civilian World, For Military Veterans" is written for service members preparing to make the transition to civilian life, and for those veterans who have already gone through the process and are ready to take life to the next level.
Written by our founder Brock Heath, a veteran who has discovered and documented the tactics for success in the 1st Civ Div, this is more than just motivation and inspiration. Inside is an entire system for success, which includes the "Run the Gauntlet" challenge, suggested reading lists, a year-long association strategy, goal-card template, and 12 concrete Action Items proven to launch the reader towards the life that they want to live.
Brock Heath served in the Marine Corps Infantry and was deployed three times before transitioning back to the civilian world. He is now a business owner, author, leadership instructor, and has spoken to thousands about his positive action-based system.

~ Vivian Blevins, Ph.D. is the past CEO of multiple colleges ranging from California to Kentucky. She has extensive experience working with our returning veterans, and is the producer of "Veterans Voices," a 20-part television series featuring veterans and their stories. Her husband and two sons are veterans as well, which gives her a powerful understanding of what our vets go through and need as they make the transition. She reviewed the book and had the following to say:
"My extensive training as a consultant for major U.S. telecom companies and my years developing curriculum and teaching at all levels, including graduate programs, tells me that what Brock Heath has prepared to assist those who have left the military to succeed in the civilian world is spot on. The exercises are practical and easy to do, and the self-monitoring component is critical for persons committed to bringing about positive change in their lives.
The conversational tone of the book from a Marine who understands the challenges and opportunities of military service is precisely what veterans need to hear. They need an affirmation that their experiences in the military are valuable and can serve to catapult them into the civilian world as they make the necessary adaptations. The "can do" attitude of the text coupled with Heath's own success story is inspirational."
~ Joe Cogliano, Head Writer for The Dayton Business Journal conducted a Q&A session with Brock about his book and advice for military members and veterans.
