Special Guests Jim Wetekamp, CEO of Riskonnect and Tom Lebamoff, CEO of Exactus Advisors discuss Risk Management in light of COVID-19.COVID-19 has highlighted the need for companies large and small to consider adding a  Risk Management System (RMS) to their toolset. Companies that are using an RMS will have additional use cases to implement based on the lesson to be learned from COVID-19.  COVID-19 has impacted the ability of employees to work, suppliers to perform, customers’ ability to pay, and reduced demand for products/services, and more.  The reality that all of these risks came to fruition at the same time and from the same event, makes remediating the risk exponentially more difficult. “What are the odds that could really happen?” had changed to “We never thought this would happen, how to prepare for it again?” Jim and Tom share great insight that is valuable to all of our listeners.Visit Riskonnect at www.riskonnect.comVisit Exactus Advisors at www.exactusadvisors.comYou can find all episodes of LeaderLivingLife at subscribe and share!Support the show (
Eric is joined by special guests Nate McDonald and Dan Maillard of Irreverent Warriors to discuss the origin and mission of Irreverent Warriors.  The discussion has a few moments of raw emotion as we discuss veterans' suicide and how we've been impacted by it personally.This episode is dedicated to the memory of Jeffery SlossJeffery served under me during the PGW and was the guy that kept us all laughing when the suck was deep. We called him “Snuffy” because no matter where we were, he could sniff out a good time.    He was the guy that gave me the nickname Sgt Rock because no one could get my last name right.  Sgt Rock stuck and there are folks today that don’t know me by any other name.We lost touch a few years after the PGW.  He went on to become an SC State Trooper while remaining in the SC NG and built a family with his wife Pamela.Jeffery committed suicide on May 27, 2004 – 5 weeks after he returned from Iraq.It doesn’t get easier to talk about, he was a great guy and it is crushing for me when it comes up.  I guess it’s a good thing from the perspective that he really mattered.  However, I keep feeling that I left him hanging as life got busy and we lost touch.  This is who I was thinking of that led to my mini-breakdown at the being of this episode.Please visit to learn more about the mission and to support them through a donation.  We have to end 22 a day and these guys are working hard to that goal.  Support the show (
