Episode 9: Ed Rush
THE JIM HOUSE SHOW
The Rare Few, who have spent a significant amount of time in the cockpit of an F-18 fighter jet know the value of strategy and the power of focus when flying nearly twice the speed of sound.
After 2 combat tours to Iraq, decorated Marine fighter pilot Ed Rush—one of the country’s leading instructors in aerial-dogfight fighting, left full-time active duty to speak, write, and share a focused message that will change the world.
Ed’s clients range from Entrepreneurs to Multi-million-dollar multi-national organizations
and include CEOs, founders, political leaders, sports teams, universities, and Hollywood stars.
However, Ed is quick to point out, that he achieved ALL of that in spite of failing kindergarten.
As you will hear in this interview, Ed’s family is very important to him, and that’s why he initially made him show up on my radar.
He shares a couple of pretty crazy flying stories, and he even gives Us a brief tutorial for how to fly an F-18… pretty cool!
So why would one of the top F-18 pilots in the world, turn IN his wings and walk away at the top of his game—away from something that he loved doing?
Well, Ed answers that question during our conversation, and here’s a little hint… books are part of the answer.
All of my previous guests have been successfully published by traditional publishing houses, but that’s not the right path for everyone, for very few, in fact.
So, I wanted you to hear why someone who had the option to be published by the big houses, but chose instead, to self-publish on his own.
I helped Ed create his book 21 Day Miracle, and he’ll lift the hood to reveal part of that crazy book journey.
He has over 160, 000 followers on Facebook, 80,000 on Instagram, and north of 10,000 on LinkedIn.
Go buy the 21 Day Miracle at EdRushBook.com which is a free membership site we created along with the book, and it’s got a ton of value inside.
Ed’s super bright, he’s really funny (please don’t tell him I said that) and, he’s here on the planet to make a difference!
I usually say Buckle Up before we start the interview, but today I’m going to say…
Strap yourself into the harness, and get ready for a Catapult launch off of the carrier!
