Friends, today, I have with me someone that I find very interesting that I came across on my favorite platform, LinkedIn. Michael J Penney. Michael J. Penney is a proven, battle tested leader.
Michael is a combat veteran of Iraq & Afghanistan. He served in the United States Marine Corps for 8 years through 2 wars. But then In March of 2016 he presented at TEDxRaleigh, “What’s Your IED: How to Add Value During Life's Explosive Situations”, combining military and personal experiences in an effort to bridge the lives of veterans and civilians.
He’s also the founder of 5Paragraph.com where he uses his military training and skill sets to help small to medium sized businesses improve their workforce efficiencies through better leadership.
You can see Michael do a multi-stream live reading of a classic book from time to time or when he’s just trying to make the world a better place and discuss a topic that he’s passionate about.
You can go to www.5paragraph.com to see his training or coaching information there.
· Michael explains his transition out of the military and going back to school in Boston MA and how Mentors and a business development program helped him with his pitch for his patent and initial product
· Michael explains the development of the concept of using the 5 paragraph operations order and how he made it successful in the business environment.
· He then explains why he started the live streams and his book writing ventures
