With the month of May designated as Military Month & Memorial Day, we would love to share the story of 101st Airborne Veteran Patrick Bet-David to share his advice about how to succeed in life after the military, including the 19 military lessons that made him a millionaire. Patrick went on a remarkable journey as a a refugee from war-torn Iran, to joining the U.S. Army, creating the world’s most popular entrepreneurial YouTube channel Valuetainment (with over 1.1 million subscribers) and becoming a CEO with over 10,000 employees. Examples of the military lessons that Patrick can share inlcude:
Managing Chaos: “In the military everything happens at the same time, and you have to find a way to be poised in the middle of it. Some people can’t handle that.”
Leadership: “We don’t give up on our peers; we develop them.”
Strategy: “Everything is about strategy. You’ve got to learn what you’re going to be doing with strategy. In the world of business, you need to be strategic.”
Managing Risks: “When in war and business, you have to anticipate what may happen if you stand still, go right, left, forward or backwards. If you climb the mountain, you’re tired, which is a risk, but if you stand still, there is risk. You have to decide which risk you want to take.”
Patrick’s hugely popular YouTube platform Valuetainment allows him to interview CEOs, actors, sport legends & politicians including Kevin Hart, Mark Cuban, Steve Wozniak, Magic Johnson, Steve Aoki, Ron Paul, and Tony Hawk to uncover the process behind their success. We would be thrilled to share Patrick’s American dream story with you, as well as the savvy business advice and lessons he has uncovered along the way.
From a humble beginning as a young immigrant escaping war-torn Iran with his parents, to founding his own company, Patrick has gained a first-hand understanding of what rags-to-riches means and how it is fueled by freedom and opportunity. As a natural critical thinker, Patrick takes complex leadership, management and entrepreneurial ideas and converts them into simple life lessons for today and tomorrow’s entrepreneurs. Patrick is passionate about shaping the next generation of leaders by teaching thought provoking perspectives on entrepreneurship and disrupting the traditional approach to a career.
Patrick’s unbelievable story starts with his family immigrating to America when he was 10-years old. His parents fled Iran as refugees during the Iranian revolution and were eventually granted U.S. citizenship. After high school, he joined the U.S. military and served in the 101st Airborne before starting a business career in the financial services industry. After a tenure with a couple of traditional companies, Patrick was inspired to launch PHP Agency Inc., an insurance sales, marketing and distribution company – and did so before he turned 30. PHP is now one of the fastest growing companies in the financial marketplace.
Patrick speaks around the world on a range of business, leadership and entrepreneurial topics including how and why to become an entrepreneur and the importance of learning how to fully process issues.
