In this episode of The Ben Steele Show I had the opportunity to sit down with my two friends and fellow Marine Corps Officers Travis Soubie and Collin Burke. Also, my friend Bret McHale, who is an aviation supply officer, made a quick appearance half way though the show.

If you have ever wondered what it’s like to be an officer in the military, the USMC specifically, than this is the episode for you. We discuss everything from surviving Officer Candidates School, to infantry training at The Basic School, to our current lives at our Military Occupational Specialty training in North Carolina. We talk about some of the challenges that we have faced in Marine Corps training as well as the many benefits that we have received.

In addition to the military talk, we also discuss developing effective morning routines, fitness, nutrition, and keys to becoming a successful person in general. We talk about some of the people who have positively influenced us as well as some things that we are working on to be better people.

This is the 1st episode of many for The Ben Steele Show and really gets down to the roots of why this podcast was started. Consider this an average man’s guide to living a more than adequate life.
