Stephan Porter, Planning


Veteran & Military Community Program Guru ✣Your Personal Military Transition Road Navigator ✣Military Community Advocate

Serving the Greater Military Community (Veterans, Mil-Spouses, Guard & Reserves, Families, Gold Star, Active Duty) on the #TransitionRoad…

By building bridges from industry in helping to create “Primed and Ready” Companies!

The Greater Military Community possesses mad soft skills and extensive, strategic hard skills to support & to grow your business’ bottom line!

I've chosen to not only prepare the individual to enter industry successfully through my volunteer efforts, but to help industry learn how it can acquire, retain, and benefit from this strategic talent, by refining their processes and programs to be “Primed and Ready”...just like a pump!!

Let me leverage these skills & experience to help you identify your organizations drift, your needs from the front-line worker through C/V-Staff, & find the point of engagement towards changing that drift to achieve your full potential.

The military taught me many life lessons:
• No one is greater than the team
• Take care of your people
• Mission First, Task/Purpose/End State
• Take responsibility
• Employ lifelong learning
• Say what must be said with tact
• hard right over the easy wrong
• Honor is everything, only you can give your integrity away

I will work continually to teach these to those I can and instill them into the organizations I volunteer with, work with, or am employed by!

It’s ALL about creating positive change in the lives of those around you, & in doing so...the world!
