Because it’s 4th of July week, we’ve decided to take some time off (kinda). During this week, we will be doing a compilation of the Professor’s talks on the USMC Leadership Traits that he did on the Morning Mindset podcast! Hope you enjoy.

There are a whopping 14 of them, and to get them all in, we’re doing Three public episodes this week! Today, tomorrow, and Wednesday. During this installment, we cover Justice, Judgement, Dependability, Initiative.

Also, if you would like your own copy of JJDIDTIEBUCKLE, we have an awesome Poster for you over at!
