A Compass for Founders and Achievers Charting Their Course in Business and Life.

Joel Neeb told me he was coasting on his success and reputation. Then Stage IV cancer hit. He was told he had eighteen months to live. He was thirty-three, a fighter pilot, husband, and father of two boys, three and one. And that’s when he began to move his life from success to significance.

Joel is an Air Force Academy graduate where he was one of thirty people in his class of seven hundred who became fighter pilots. He enjoyed a fourteen-year career only to one day realize he was coasting. And after facing death, he knew that’s not why God made him. There was so much more to do. So much more he could be. Not because he had to do it, but because he got to do it.

Joel is also the co-author of the book, Survivor’s Obligation - Navigating an Intentional Life. In this book, these fighter pilots talk about the wall they hit in their lives. One crashed and survived, and Joel survived cancer. Both survivor experiences radically changed their outlook on life. It’s a great read, filled with life lessons.

Now Joel is the CEO of Afterburner, an international consulting firm. He leads an elite team of former fighter pilots, Navy Seals, and special forces veterans. They share with corporate execs their experience and methodology on how to achieve flawless execution. 

There is much to learn here on starting, building, and leading your company. The lessons on leadership and organization execution will help you build a great company, but more importantly, a great life.

Come. Listen. Learn.
