Decades of law enforcement experience have taught James DeMeo to always be ready for the unexpected–hostility/mass shootings and more. We talk about what it means to be ready in this interview. You can learn more about James here:

About (James DeMeo LinkedIn)

Having the courage to step outside your comfort zone is never an easy task. I spent 21 years law in enforcement, a noble but dangerous profession. I retired in 2011 and earned my post graduate degree from Adelphi University. Since finishing Act 1, I have continued my life long passion for learning, teaching & professional career development. The best career advice I can offer is to face your fears head-on, take a deep breath and simply go for it. Make your dreams a reality. You can’t change the world by having fear. You can’t change the world by talking about it. You just have to go out and do it. Today. Right now. Thank you.

Sage-Like Advice-Change Agent 2020 & Beyond:

In business and in life, when you are not pushing the envelope, not pushing yourself beyond your limits you are not creating impact. When you start to feel resistance that means you are creating meaningful change.

Lead from the front. Lead without fear. Education & Knowledge are the antidote to fear. Fear is simply not an option. Fear is not part of the equation. God Bless America.
