Smith is related to, or affiliated with, the U.S. Government, the U.S. Department of Defense, or the U.S. Navy. "Wearing another hat," Jarrod is on active duty and has attained the rank of Commander. He believes we are losing service members and veterans due to a lack of intentional, informed planning and aims to offer a different approach, wanting to save families from grief and heartache reverberating through our ranks. With that clear, here is full and complete disclaimer:

My results aren't even close to typical. My advice, counsel, guidance, mentorship, and consulting is based on what I know at the time of our discussion. It may be right, wrong, or, more than likely, somewhere in between based upon the situation, context, and what you do and do not fully disclose. It's also based on how I interpret what you say and whether we're talking apples to apples or lemons to limes. 


You're responsible, too.  Say this out loud: "It's My Fault."  There, now we can work well together and do great things. 


I'll take responsibility for my actions and decisions and you take responsibility for yours. I make no claim or promise that the results you get from using my services will meet or exceed your expectations. I will deal with you fairly, honestly, and 

always with your best interests in mind, 

but I could make an error.  


I'm human, just like you. I've failed before and I will fail again.  

My goal is to fail fast, learn from it, and then win. 

And win again.  Are you in? 

Alright then, let's go!
