Retired Navy SEAL, shows resilience, through dogs

By now you’re probably familiar with the concept of having a word of the day associated with our Overcome+Conquer Show, at least I hope you are (if you follow the show, and if you don’t well….. Get on it!). So, a few months back we had an episode where the word was resilience. And while […]


I usually start these out with the word of the day that we use on the show, and we’re going to get to that, but today, I’m just gonna dive right in. On the latest episode of the Overcome+Conquer Show, we had the absolute pleasure of talking to one of the most accomplished military members […]

Moving the Needle

We all deal with specific issues in our private lives. Stress, worry, negativity, they all creep in from time-to-time. Some are the result of traumatic events in our lives, but some, are the result of a chemical imbalance, which can lead to life ambushes we deal with daily. Now add the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing, […]


Relentless. Merriam-Webster says it’s, showing or promising no abatement of severity, intensity, strength, or pace. It’s a word often used when describing a ferocious animal in the wild. Which is why I chose the Honey Badger for our graphic. Many people think of a lion, or a bear when they think of this word, but […]

Meeting New Challenges Productively

Every single day we wake up, we are met with new challenges. Things we may never have seen before. New life ambushes, or just scenarios that don’t fit into our plans. More traffic than we expected. Someone runs a stop sign, and now we have to deal with at best a fender-bender. Or worse. Like […]


Ever find yourself thinking about how things could have been different? Ever log onto social media, and see friends sharing about how great things are with their new car, new boat, on a trip or something, and you’re left feeling down about yourself, because you can’t afford those things? If so, know this; that’s normal. […]

We Can Rise Above

It’s a constant theme with us, overcoming life’s ambushes. Sometimes though, overcoming isn’t enough. We have to conquer them too. This is why we call the podcast, Overcome+Conquer. I bring this up because a big part of overcoming and conquering the things life throws at us is learning how to not let the darkness become […]

Owning It

Things go great sometimes. A lot of the time. But also, things go wrong. We will fail at times. What we do what that happens is what makes up our character. Are we going to blame our circumstances, or perspective roadblocks, or are we going to own our part in what happened? It’s easy to […]

“Be on fire, for them,” -Coach Martin Rooney

Have you ever had one of those days where you’re up, you’re out to finish the task at hand, but, still just a little, uhm, bogged down? Like you’re there, you’re present in the moment, but it lacks meaning. It’s just another thing to do on a long list of stuff. That overall enthusiasm is […]


Resilience. Webster’s Dictionary says it’s “an ability to recover from or easily adjust to misfortune or change.” That brings on the secondary word for us to ponder: change. Change is going to happen. It can be for the better, or it can be something I often call a life ambush. Life’s bullets just come, and […]
