My Five Biggest Regrets As A COPreneur

My Five Biggest Regrets As A COPreneur

We're making a bit of a shift and with season 2 of the podcast, the new COPreneur Path Podcast! This slightly different platform is actually in response to you, the listeners. I put out a survey a while back on LinkedIn and I surveyed some of you that I have direct contact with, and the response was a resounding, "Yes! We want a podcast that is focused specifically on the idea of copreneurship and the path from going from cop to copreneur, and becoming a successful post-LEO entrepreneur."

So, what I want to do today to usher in this slightly new, slightly changed, or I should say more focused podcast is to talk to you about my five biggest regrets as a copreneur. Now I feel like the term regret is sort of a stronger word than I'd like to use here, because do I actually regret anything? No, I don't. I don't regret a single thing about my journey thus far. Everything that I have been through in both a positive and a negative has been ultimately for the positive.

I don't regret a single thing, but are there things that I would like to go back and change or things that I wish that I knew before what I know now. And that's what this podcast has always been about. It's all about sharing with you my own journey and what I've learned along the way to help you be successful entrepreneurs. I'm hoping that by discussing these five biggest regrets of mine with you, that they too will be helpful. And they'll usher in this new chapter, this new season, this new era in the podcast that is now the COPreneur Path Podcast!

I help companies who market products and services related to law enforcement or the military, or are in the hunting & fishing, dignitary security, private security, and private investigations industries.

As a former 15-year law enforcement veteran, deputized US Marshal, law enforcement administrator, lover of hunting and fishing, and enthusiast of all things tactical, I know how to speak yours and your customer's language.
