Lt. Col (ret) Rob “Waldo” Waldman; The Wingman and author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, Never Fly Solo, overcame massive claustrophobia and a fear of heights to become a highly experienced fighter pilot with over sixty-five combat missions in Iraq and Serbia. He believes the key to building a culture of trust lies with your wingmen – those in your life who help you to overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and achieve success. In business and life, you should never fly solo! Waldo is a graduate of the U.S Air Force Academy and also holds an MBA with a focus on Organizational Behavior. Mr. Waldman is the founder and President of The Wingman Foundation, whose mission is to build funds and awareness for soldiers, veterans and their families in need. You can follow Waldo on Facebook and Twitter.
Take a journey through the life of poet and writer Ralph Waldo Emerson in this episode.
Author Dr. Deane Waldman did his homework; as University of Chicago’s former head of pediatric cardiology he knows that our healthcare system is sick and in desperate need of a emergancy care.
According to his book “The Cancer In Healthcare: How Greed Is Killing What We Love,” healthcare itself has become a very sick patient, with the cancer of greed and bureaucracy adversely affecting doctors and patients alike. “Something is very wrong ... and though some blame insurance companies, hospitals or government, there is something far more insidious at work and Americans need to know the truth.” Dr. Waldman is working at the grass roots level to start a larger national dialog to talk about what good patient care should look like and how we can over-hall a top-heavy bureaucratic system to one that allows doctors to give real patient care. In short: he wants to put the ‘care’ back in healthcare.
“You are no longer a sick patient in need of healthcare. You are now a revenue source for doctor and hospital, a
consumer of big pharma products and an expense item for insurance under our current system. Worse of all, you
have become a vote-for-sale in Washington says Dr.Waldman.
Through compelling real-world stories, Lt. Col. Rob "Waldo" Waldman relates how his Air Force wingmen helped him overcome challenges and become successful by teaching him lessons that work in an office as well as in a cockpit.
In and of itself, the above excerpt would provide a more than compelling reason to buy Lt. Col. Waldman's book Never Fly Solo. Especially given the fact that the first accolade for his book was from the Pit Bull of Personal Development himself Larry Winget. Larry, who has you already know, has been a guest on my show several times tells it like it is, so if he likes it - it has to be good!
However, and beyond the above, I actually had the opportunity to not only hear Rob speak at the recent Virginia 2014 Forum, I had the privilege to meet him in person and share some time over lunch.
While I was obviously impressed with the purpose and integrity of his message, it was the accessibility to his personal story that resonated most.
Joining me today to talk about why it is important to never fly solo is Lt. Col. Rob "Waldo" Waldman.

USA Freedom Act: passed by relative landslide this week in GOP House, awaiting Senate action, reportedly ends direct state bulk collection of phone records revealed (again) by Snowden, forces telecoms into bulk collection role
Second Circuit Appeals court ruled this month that the Patriot Act did not, in fact, authorize the massive vacuuming up of people's communication data undertaken by U.S. spy agencies, despite ubiquitous, off-record claims to the contrary by "the intelligence community"
Court records can give the public some idea as to how the telecom oligopolies are responding to both of these events, indications being that a likely scenario is the largely unabated supply of communications information to the government
On May 31st of this year, Section 215 of the Patriot Act --used to support claims that nationwide, communications dragnet collection is authorized by law-- is expiring

THERE ARE TIMES IN ALL OF OUR LIVES WHEN OTHERS SPEAK NEGATIVELY ABOUT US, YET, WE HAVE THE POWER TO DECIDE HOW WE WILL MANAGE THE SITUATION.
THE FIRST STEP IS TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE. IF SOMEONE CALLS YOU A TREE---THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU A TREE. IF SOMEONE CALLS YOU A TRAIN---THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU A TRAIN. YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE AND ANOTHER'S ACCUSATIONS CANNOT CHANGE WHO YOU ARE UNLESS YOU GIVE THAT PERSON THE POWER TO DO IT.
LIFE HAS A BRIGHT SIDE AND DARK SIDE, FOR THE WORLD OF RELATIVITY IS COMPOSED OF LIGHT AND SHADOWS. IF YOU PERMIT YOUR THOUGHTS TO DWELL ON EVIL, YOU YOURSELF WILL BECOME UGLY. LOOK ONLY FOR GOOD IN EVERYTHING, THAT YOU ABSORB THE QUALITY OF BEAUTY.---PARAMAHANSA YOGANANDA
