In these conversations we explore the military-to-civilian transition and job search process, speaking with veterans leaving a positive mark on society every day in the world around them. We hear the stories of honorably discharged men and women of the US Armed Forces about the good, the bad, the ugly they encountered while building civilian lives for themselves and their families. If you're looking for good advice during your daily commute, workout, or ‘me’ time, start planning for your transition today with the Veteran Influencer Podcast.

Jon Macaskill is a U.S. Navy SEAL, Mindfulness Practitioner, Expert Monotasker, and Certified Wrong Thinker. After 20+ years as both an enlisted sailor and a commissioned officer, he is transitioning out of the military and launching a mindfulness and emotional intelligence coaching company - Macaskill Consulting, aiming to bring meditation, mindfulness, and EQ to organizations and creating a strategic advantage within high-performing teams. In this conversation Jon defines terms like meditation and mindfulness and discusses common misconceptions surrounding these practices, as well as shares his first encounters with the discipline and how it helped him both at home and at work in stressful situations. We also get into how he decided to create a business for himself as a part of his transition based on input from a trusted mentor. This episode covers the financial planning that has gone into his transition strategy, how he has begun building his business in order to respect the DoD -- Civilian balance, and his long-awaited cross-country road trip in the family RV.
