  About Today’s Guest:Jamie Mustard is the world’s leading authority on perception in the physical world.  Steeped in the worlds of technology, product engagement, and the creative arts, Jamie consults with leading companies, CEOs, creative artists, etc., getting their messages, products, brands and ideas to STAND OUT to their desired audiences.This is the science and art of getting heard and being memorable in iconic fashion.  A graduate of the London School of Economics, Jamie’s work is an explanation of the ‘economics of attention’ based on the primal laws and neuro-scientific research on human perception called BLOCKS™, which explain why anything STANDS OUT and endures in the mind (or fails to).  In his bestselling and O.W.L  Award-winning book, The ICONIST: The Art and Science of Standing Out,  he uses case studies in business and pop culture, in addition to his extensive scientific research, to explore how BLOCKS™ solve one of our most crucial problems: Being made invisible.He has spoken, educated and inspired others with his work ubiquitously including, Cisco, Intel, Symantec, Adidas, Pacific Northwest College of Art and TEDx . Jamie’s ICONIST work has spanned some of the world’s leading companies, technologies, artists, designers, creatives, non-profits and the globe.  In his vibrant multimedia speech presentations, he gives audiences the power of capturing attention to those who are feeling stifled by an over-messaged culture. When we can get attention at will, we can motivate and inspire others, adapt faster, get buy-in, improve organizational culture, generate demand, increase productivity and ultimately be more fulfilled as organizations and individuals.Links Related to This Episode:The Iconist Website The Iconist BookJoin our Facebook Group:Seeking the Military Suicide Solution on FacebookShauna's latest book: Warrior: How to Support Those Who Protect UsDuane's latest book: Military in the Rear View Mirror: Mental Health and Wellness in Post-Military LifeHow to Leave a Podcast ReviewLeaving a podcast review at iTunes isn't intuitive.

About Today’s Guest: Michelle Villarreal Zook is currently an economics impact researcher evaluating programs within the federal government. She previously served as a commissioned officer in the United States Air Force, flying as an air battle manager with the 960th Air Command and Control Squadron out of Tinker Air Force Base, OK.  As squadron executive officer and chief of the orderly room, she oversaw all administrative and personnel requirements for an operational line squadron of 300 officers and enlisted personnel in theater critical operations, leading a team of nine airmen in over 30 organizational programs, and advising command staff. Additionally, she served as 552d Operations Group executive officer, working on a team to assist the group commander and four deputy group commanders in leading and directing mission essential operations for 1200 personnel.After leaving the Air Force, she earned her Master of Arts in Public Policy and joined the district staff of then freshman Congressman John Ratcliffe. As his constituent services manager and veterans’ affairs policy lead, she led a casework team for over 100 federal agencies, ensuring the more than 735,000 constituents of Texas’s Fourth District received representation and any benefits they were entitled to. She also provided recommendations to the legislative director regarding veterans and defense legislative matters, while managing the congressman’s service academy selection board and serving as the district’s federal disaster response coordinator. Despite all this and being selected for the Bush Institute’s Inaugural Veterans Leadership Program, her two children still feel the need to backseat drive and tell her she’s doing everything wrong. In her spare time, she runs, reads too many mystery novels, coaches girls’ lacrosse, scribbles in notebooks, yells at the Dallas Stars (particularly Jamie Benn), and nags her kids to clean their rooms.Links Mentioned in this Episode:Michelle on LinkeInMichelle's Women Veteran Authors projectRedefine Your Mission Web siteJoin our Facebook Group:Seeking the Military Suicide Solution on FacebookShauna's latest book: Warrior: How to Support Those Who Protect UsDuane's latest book: Military in the Rear View Mirror: Mental Health and Wellness in Post-Military LifeHow to Leave a Podcast ReviewLeaving a podcast review at iTunes isn't intuitive.

Chris Reder

My name is Christopher Reder, I am the founder and CEO of the DTOM 22/0 Foundation and Veterans Ranch in SD. I am extremely happy to hear about this podcast from a veteran mental health professional in CO, where I used to live. Thank you for bringing to light, its time to do something tangible to make a difference with veteran suicide. The VA has flat out told us no way will we help or support but we continue to provide state of the art Equine Assisted Draper Sensory Method therapy to veterans and their families at no cost to them! Same as Dr. Lipov and the Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block, it's time they actually prove they will look at other therapies, not just the same tired talking point "We are doing everything we can", NO you are NOT! Thank you for your podcast, I'd love to chat sometime. Christopher Reder 605-725-DTOM (3866) DTOM220.ORG
