New York Times bestselling author Brandon Webb returns to the podcast to share about a new resource created by the SOFREP team that outlines practical ways you can prepare to weather the Coronavirus pandemic and future disasters. Brandon shares some of the hard-earned business lessons he learned running his company in 2019 and we also discuss the way forward for small businesses who will be harshly impacted by the inevitable economic fallout in the weeks and months ahead.
About the Book: Conservative estimates suggest that over 96 million Americans might be infected with the Coronavirus this year.
COVID-19 is real, and it’s not finished.
We’re all subject to information overload. Even mainstream news outlets have fallen prey to clickbait headlines and biased information. It’s safe to say everyone has a bias.
The Editors at SOFREP have strived to keep as center as possible with regard to right or left slant. Most American media is to one extreme or the next but, we believe, Americans have grown tired of this, and that there is room in the middle. This editorial stance hasn’t always been popular, but we’re not in the business of winning a popularity contest when it comes to our reporting—we’re in the business of creating long-term trust with our subscribers.
In the last eight years, we’ve covered major issues in America as they relate to Foreign Policy, Defense, and Security and carved out a niche for ourselves. We’ve broken major news around Benghazi, Libya, War Crimes, Syria, Terrorism, the Special Operations community, and more. So when COVID-19, commonly referred to as Coronavirus, landed on U.S. soil, we knew that we had our work cut out for us. “How can we contribute value without being alarmist?” was the question we asked ourselves.
Our attempt with this eBook is to do just that. Our goal is to be part of the solution, not the problem.
The advice in this book comes from several decades of combined practical experience in the Special Operations, military, and medical fields. Our main objective is to provide a practical guide to dealing with Coronavirus. We want to provide tips on how to prepare better and protect yourself, family, and loved ones.
This guide is not the end-all resource, but it’s rather a small piece in the larger solution puzzle. The Editors at SOFREP encourage you to stay informed (we recommend several sources of information in this book) and make grounded decisions based on facts. We understand, however, that sorting fact from fiction can be extremely challenging today with modern media news and social media spreading false or inaccurate information.
While we are a for-profit company, we did not publish this book to profit off panic. We hope this is reflected in the low price of the eBook—SOFREP subscribers get it for free. In fact, if you cannot afford to pay for this eBook or afford a subscription to our news site, we will give you a copy for free. Just write into our contact page at sofrep.com, explain your financial situation, and we will send you the book on us, no strings attached.

Personal development expert, coach, and bestselling author Noah St. John joins me in this episode to talk about how to develop work and life habits that are so powerful, they make success seem automatic.
About the book: Do you know the ”how-to’s” of success, yet still aren’t making progress toward your goals? Have you gone to lots of personal development seminars and read tons of ”shelf-help” books–yet still feel STUCK?
As bestselling author, business mentor and keynote speaker Noah St. John shows in his groundbreaking new book, the essential problem is that simply knowing how to succeed isn’t enough. Because if it were, we’d all be rich, happy and thin!
The truth is that human achievement is created by the unconscious habits that drive your actions. Reaching your goals is like driving a car: your conscious desire to succeed is your ”foot on the gas,” while your unconscious desire to stay where you are, is your ”foot on the brake.”
The result of more than three decades of study and experience, Noah St. John’s Power Habits System overhauls traditional personal development programs that focused on trying to change human behavior. Instead, St. John teaches The Power Habits of Unconsciously Successful People –targeting your unconscious thoughts, beliefs, and desires in order to get your foot off the brake and put you on autopilot toward success.
St. John’s life-changing program teaches you how to retrain your unconscious mind, unlock your hidden potential, and achieve measurable results in the following areas of life:
Your relationships: Using Noah’s methods, you will form deep bonds and mutually beneficial relationships with family, friends, and colleagues, and attract the people into your life who will contribute positively to it.
Your self-confidence: You will also gain a new sense of value and appreciation for who you are, leading to heightened levels of energy, genius, and creativity.
Your finances: You will create a more abundant lifestyle for yourself and your family, while becoming more fulfilled through your career.
Your happiness: You will experience a renewed zest and enthusiasm for life!
Using his Power Habits System, Noah St. John was not only able to transform his life from one of dead-end jobs and endless debt to worldwide prominence, impressive business accomplishments, and prosperity; he’s also become one of the world’s most sought-after keynote speakers and business coaches. And the results speak for themselves: Since 1997, Noah’s clients have added more than a billion dollars in sales.
About the author: Noah St. John is a keynote speaker and best-selling author who’s famous for inventing Afformations(R) – a new technology of the mind – and helping people get rid of their head trash so they can make more money.
Since 2009, Noah’s coaching clients have added more than half a billion dollars in sales.
Noah is the only author in history to have works published works by Hay House, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Mindvalley, Nightingale-Conant, and the Chicken Soup for the Soul publisher. His books have been published in 17 languages.
About the Book: The Ten Commandments have become so familiar to us that we don’t think about what they actually mean. They’ve been used by Christians throughout history as the basis for worship, confessions, prayer, even civil law.
Are these ancient words still relevant for us today? Their outward simplicity hides their inward complexity. Jesus himself sums up the entire law in a pair of commandments: Love God with all your heart, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself.
Peter Leithart re-introduces the Ten Commandments. He shows us how they address every arena of human life, giving us a portrait of life under the lordship of Jesus, who is the heart and soul of the commandments.
About the Author: Peter J. Leithart is President of the Theopolis Institute, a Christian study center and leadership training institute in Birmingham, Alabama.
On April 2, 2014, 2nd Lt. John M. Arroyo, Jr. was shot in the throat and neck by another soldier who then went on to kill four soldiers, including himself, and wound sixteen others. In this interview, John shares some of the many miracles that took place that day and in the months ahead to preserve his life.
About the Book: This is the amazing story of 2nd Lt. John M. Arroyo, Jr., who, on April 2, 2014, was shot in the throat and neck by another soldier who then went on to kill four soldiers, including himself, and wound sixteen others.
It tells of John’s journey from his childhood in Southern California to his time spent as a tattooed member of a violent street gang, and a hopeless teenage drug addict. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and ultimately became a Special Forces Green Beret and highly decorated officer after serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan and one in Iraq.
This story of the journey to the very edge of overwhelming darkness includes the story of his brave, supportive wife, Angel. Often overlooked, military spouses have a unique and powerful role in the lives of the U.S fighting forces.
Be inspired by this story as John uses his faith to protect himself and his fellow Special Forces “Operators” while deployed to the Middle-East and then relies on it to recover from the massive wounds he sustained after being shot at Fort Hood, Texas
