Some people ‘jump’ into everything they do in life with both feet, whether that is jumping into corporate America as an entrepreneur or jumping out of a plane with the 82nd Airborne. Justin Pearson is a perfect example. He even transitioned out of the military with a jump, running headfirst into a LinkedIn environment that wasn’t well suited to help veterans find civilian work.

Justin served in the U.S. Army for two decades. Only agreed to be placed in the infantry if he was allowed to jump out of planes, just as his father and grandfather had done before him. He was a member of the 82nd Airborne, Charlie Company 1505 Parachute Infantry Regiment, known as “The Panthers.” He served in Afghanistan for over a year after 9/11. Today he is the Founder and CEO of Proper Patriot, a patriotic apparel company that focuses on positivity within the military community, the law enforcement community, and the first responder community.

In this episode of Veteran Voices, produced in partnership with Vets2Industry, host Scott Luton speaks with Justin about:

• What everyone needs to do to network, market themselves and build a personal

brand today

• The details people often don’t realize about the ‘funnel’ approach to building out a professional network

• How to prepare to have quality interactions that turn into relationships over time
