With as much craziness and violence we see in public these days, it’s crucial that we as men learn how to effectively protect and defend ourselves and those we love. Fortunately, with a little intentionality and planning it’s not all that difficult to keep ourselves and others safe.
Today, I’m joined by Former Navy SEAL, FBI Agent, and Federal Air Marshall, Jonathan Gilliam to talk about how to do just that. We cover the concept of preparation versus paranoia, the default of awareness, when to get involved in situations and when not to, the “crawl, walk, run” theory, and recognizing and neutralizing threats before they occur.
“The groupthink that I see right now is rampant and out of control.” Tweet That— Jonathan Gilliam
My guest today is Jonathan Gilliam and I’m not sure there is someone more qualified to talk about personal security and safety than this man.
He is a former Navy SEAL (also attended Ranger School), Federal Air Marshall, Security Specialist for the Department of Homeland Security, and a Special Agent with the FBI. He also has a BA double major in Political Science and Psychology.
He’s been featured on over 1,000 major media appearances including Fox, CNN, and MSNBC. In addition, he has his own podcast, The EXPERTS Podcast and is the author of Sheep No More: The Art of Awareness and Attack Survival. Enjoy.
“I’m not paranoid at all…if something occurs, I’m good to go.” Tweet That— Jonathan Gilliam
