    Community,

    I’m excited about sharing a new chapter of my life with this community. Your comments have demonstrated your willingness to give your most precious resource and I will be forever thankful. I have been fortunate enough to accomplish several goals in life. I will keep my goal simple and one that will benefit all of us.

    While I contemplated about my industry of interest, I thought about my 4-9 options of life. There are nine industries that are of my interest.

    What industry would you recommend, and why? If I leverage technology, do you believe it’s possible to be in more than one industry?

    Continued Success,

    Luis

    Greetings Community,

    Who am I? In order to understand who I am, we must understand the Domain of the Brain concept; please go to page six of the following link so that you may follow along with a visual representation of the Domain of the Brain: http://wherecommunitiesserveveterans.org/resources/Documents/ORIENTATION%20MODELS.pdf. Each box represents a different phase in our thought process. From the moment we wake up in the morning we're in the "C" box, from there we decide to the shower, I hope, and we go into the "B" box. We get to work or into our daily routine and we step into the "I" box. In the "I" box we are inundated with information. After we process that information, we get into the "R" box. In the "R" box we create relationships, and from those relationships we create transactions. After we create our transactions we step into the "A" box. Now, for most it’s not easy stepping outside the "A" box. Stepping outside the "A" Box consists of stepping into the "L" box. In the "L" box, phase, we are learning new ways to get back to the "A" box, and shortly after, you step into the "U" box. In the "U" phase we un-learn what we have learned, in order to learn what we don’t know. We then go into the "R" box where we re-train. Many get comfortable in one box, never completing their cycle. Now that you have an idea of what the Domain of the Brain concept consists of, lets go back to my question, who am I?

    At this point in my career, I consider myself to be in the "U" box. I’m un-learning in order to learn what I don’t know. Since I’ve been out of the Marine Corps I’ve realized that the business tempo has shifted into high gear. With information flowing at the speed of light, we have become more efficient. With the right knowledge and technology we are able to complete tasks, twice as fast, now, than 10 years ago. Before joining the Marine Corps, in 2006, I was cold calling to build my prospect list. Now, what began as a past time has become the norm, in the business world; various social media sites are now the go to place to start a network. A resume is nice, but a good reference can seal the deal; what I mean by that is that, if we treat everyone like our first client the word will get out, faster than ever.

    Who are You?

    It all began one December morning, while I was at my desk my mom asked me if I could accompany her to visit, available, office space. Once there I met a retired Marine who turned out to be the founder of the Southwest Veteran Resource Center. After a few discussions and heated debates about the value of the “Learner” program, I’m here ready to share my thoughts.

A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
