Veterans have amazing leadership skills when they exit the military. Our feature guest today, Andreas Jones, coupled his military training, Jamaica upbringing and entrepreneur mindset and built a coaching business that you need to take a close look at. Andreas has been tested in combat and business. He has the experience to launch your business into high gear.
Andreas is the Founder of Combat Business Coaching, #1 Bestselling author of Business Leader Combat, Business Strategist, Leadership Consultant, Army Combat Veteran, Columnist and Featured Contributor at Forbes, The Huffington Post, LifeHack.org, and BizCatalyst360.com.
Andreas works with business owners and business leaders to help them build high performing businesses so that they can have more profits, fans and freedom and grow their business without stress, overwhelm and burnout in any economy.
Service in the US Army forged Andreas’s character. It tested him, tested his endurance, faith, and internal fortitude. He describes it as “a trial by fire” and remains profoundly grateful for it.
When he finally left the Army he did so with an astute understanding of self-ownership, implementing a vision, and the value in establishing trust and reputation. Jones applied all that he had learned serving his country to a series of jobs, including that of a VP at Sun Trust Bank. Each of his positions have endowed him with the type of knowledge required to start his own business and to provide a workable schematic for others to follow.
Andreas has taken his hard-won Army lessons into the world of business, continuing to learn new skills and insights to provide solutions to issues businesses are facing today. Each fresh challenge, project or position has helped him grow into the individual he is today.
