Valor and Ventures
Sean and Manny pull up chairs with the indomitable Brian Gordon. We journey with him, starting in the unassuming streets of Bradenton, where young Brian's world was anything but ordinary. Amidst hardship, he stood as a beacon of protection for his mother, younger brother, and friends, teaching us about resilience, sacrifice, and the essence of leadership. Football fans would appreciate hearing about Brian's high school days, where he donned the jerseys of OLB and DE, showing early signs of strategy, agility, and leadership. His commitment to duty and protection led him to one of the most esteemed institutions – the U.S. Marines – where the values of honor, courage, and commitment were not just words, but a way of life. Post-Marines, Brian's entrepreneurial spirit took shape in the form of Tactical Society, a testament to his dedication to ensuring that every individual feels equipped and empowered in today's unpredictable world. Dive deep into Tactical Society's ethos, its range of services, and its undying commitment to quality and reliability. But Brian's story isn’t all combat and tactics. We uncover a softer side with his unique venture, Guns & Gars. Explore the interplay of rifles and robustos, and how Brian's reverence for the 2nd Amendment found aromatic expression in a collection of cigars that have become symbols of freedom and liberty. We also venture into the deeply personal corridors of Brian's life, addressing the tragic loss of his brother Vernon Gordon. Feel the palpable emotion as Brian reveals how this heart-wrenching incident became a linchpin for his broader vision: a world where every American can be a responsible gun owner, ever-prepared to protect their loved ones. And as if his plate isn't already full, we shed light on Brian's philanthropic endeavors. With G.E.R.M., he reaches back to his roots, supporting underprivileged kids in their academic ambitions. Through OTS4VETS, he ensures his fellow veterans find their footing in the civilian world with grace and confidence. So, refill that drink and settle in for one of our most in-depth episodes yet.
