What is your story on how you “made it” and became self made?


My answer to What is your story on how you "made it" and became self made?

Answer by Ken Larson:

I took a long road through 2 military tours in a war zone and 36 years in the war fighting equipment profession to develop a value system that includes things other than career advancement and financial success.

In the process I made wrenching changes, chasing the ghosts of PTSD (see link below).

It was a journey that brought me to a legacy of contribution without salary, volunteering without expecting a return, unconditional giving and receiving the gratitude, and respect of many small enterprises through volunteer work.

It offers a unique opportunity to help start-ups and small business, enabling me to stay involved in my fields and assist in growing success stories.

The challengers are unending, the satisfaction is high and the opportunity to contribute and pass one's knowledge forward is unlimited.
