Be prepared to protect and preserve life today.


That never ending nagging that constantly pulls at the back of your heart and throat…

I’ve experienced a lot of fear in my life,

Especially now more than ever as a parent…

But one thing my time as a Special Operations Marine has taught me, it’s how to operate successfully in the face of fear.

How to have raw, unfiltered courage, and perform with excellence!

So, how do we excel daily in the midst of the unknown, danger, and adversity?

How can we truly break-free from anxiety, worry, and doubt?

Here is how…

This is a proven method that has taken me from a teen who shoots up dope in the city streets of Chicago, to a Special Operations Marine and world-renowned expert on transforming your resilience and identity.

It’s all truly in your mindset.

“I’m not good enough.”

“I’ll never get that job.”

“She’s just going to leave me.”

“He’s just going to use me.”

We have about 40,000-80,000 thoughts a day… and most of them are negative.

But why?

Why MUST we always default to the negative?

It’s because our brain is built for survival, and negative events are prioritized with our thought process because negative events are tethered to things that hurt and kill us.

Overcome vulnerability with violence

I am an anti-violence advocate, yet its ironic because in order to be truly peaceful, you must be capable of great violence… but just choose to not use it.

A physically incapable person is not peaceful… they’re just incapable, incompetent, and weak.

A person who is capable of great violence, but chooses not to use it except in justified circumstances for the preservation of peace… that person, is Lethal!

Lethality is how we overcome our deepest engrained fears.

By knowing how to protect ourselves and our loved ones, our survivalist brain reduces its level of anxiety because it knows, at a sub-conscious level, that you are physically capable of defending and protecting yourself.

Be your family’s hero, and the example that shows them how to live life with an open mind and full heart.

Overcome the crippling grips of fear, and Live Lethal.

Excellent presentation! Simple to understand.
Attended a free class presented by SCSA's training organization. We all learned a lot about home security, including tips that can be implemented by the average homeowner at little or no cost. The presenter was very knowledgeable, with a lot of experience. The audience was given opportunities to ask questions. I will definitely be visiting their new business in New Lenox.

I was lucky enough to see Joe share his thoughts on home and personal defense at a seminar in New Lenox. He's an engaging speaker with a wealth of knowledge to share. I'm looking forward to learning more from him in the future!
