Hello Everyone and HAPPY MONDAY! Its a great day and I hope you had a great weekend. This is Microcast Monday. Designed to get you ready for the week ahead. You shouldn't be dreading Monday - You should be welcoming it with open arms.

Here are some tips I use to get me ready for the week ahead:

1) Make lists of what you want to accomplish during the week - Personal or Professional, hopefully its both.

2) Look at that list throughout the day. Just don't make a list and forget about it. Look at it several times a day. Research shows when we make lists and look at the lists we are more likely to accomplish our goals.

3) Spend time with yourself throughout the week to reflect.

Thanks to all the brave men and women who work in the criminal justice field. We appreciate you and support you.

In this episode, Patrick welcomes Joel "Thor" Neeb. Joel is the President of Afterburner Inc. A global consulting firm that specializes in connecting corporate strategy to action using the Flawless Execution Methodology.

Joel is a community leader and mentor for thousands of at-risk children in the San Antonio area. Former Air Force fighter pilot with over 2,500 missions providing escort for the President, protecting our nation's borders, and training thousands of pilots for the United States and 25 allied countries around the world.

As an F-15 pilot, Thor escorted the U.S. President through the sky and flew missions to ensure the safety of the country after the attacks of 9/11. He was the tactical leader of 300 of the most senior combat pilots in the Air Force and he oversaw the execution of a $150M/year flight program. Thor was named the Top Instructor Pilot at the Air Force Flight Training Headquarters and he’s flown thousands of missions teaching pilots from 25 countries around the world. He received his bachelor’s degree at the United States Air Force Academy and is a summa cum laude graduate of the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas. He is Afterburner’s expert leadership speaker, sharing his knowledge with organizations across the US.

Thor is humbled to have had the incredible experiences that executive leadership within the military and Afterburner have afforded him, but he’s most proud of the following accomplishments. In 2010, Thor was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer and given about a 15% chance to live. Instead of giving up, Thor decided to give back. He started a youth outreach program in San Antonio that has grown to help more than 15,000 at-risk kids. Their efforts have been featured on every news channel for 100 miles and one national media outlet. In 2012, he was selected out of 62,000 people to receive the AETC National Public Service Award.

Thor completed the New Zealand Ironman Triathlon in March of 2015 to commemorate the five-year anniversary of his Stage IV cancer diagnosis and to raise awareness for the rare and deadly cancer that he battled.

Detactachem also has explosive detection products.

Gregory performs amazing work with the company Focusing on channel and business development, marketing, sales planning and strategy for automated colorimetric trace detection MobileDetect and SEEKERe products.

In this great episode, Patrick welcomes Ray Vann.

Ray wears many different hats...and they often don't match! You see, as a permanent deacon in the Catholic Church, he is ordained to serve the Church as he lives among the world. This means that unlike other Catholic clergymen permanent deacons are usually married with families and work in the world to support their families. Most of them are not paid by the Church. In the reality and rawness of life, they are called to bring the Church to the world. As such, they must accomplish this mission. You will see Ray offer spiritual insight, but you will also see him promote his businesses and his ministry. Don't be shocked if Ray, a Catholic clergyman, is discussing firearms and the rights guaranteed by our Constitution. Don't be shocked if he doesn’t sugar coat his comments. Jesus often got straight to the point and didn't bother with any form of political correctness. Ray always tries to follow His path of compassion and forgiveness, but also believe in His message of justice.

Although this book, Killing: A Spiritual Discernment Guide for Law Enforcement, is written primarily for law enforcement officers, most of what is written is also of significant importance for any citizen who is regularly armed with any type of deadly weapon for the purposes of self-defense and/or defense of others. The topic of this book is a spiritual discernment on killing. More specifically, it highlights the importance of being prepared and working through the spiritual aspects or belief system issues associated with the possibility of having to end the life of another human being. In addition, this writing will assist law enforcement officers in developing a plan of action to be implemented immediately after an incident where deadly force is used.
