[00:00:03] Welcome to Goat Wrestling Perseverance podcast with your host, Dave Swanson. He's wrestled with goats, climbed mountains and bicycled across America. He wants to help you with your dreams and goals with one perseverance story at a time.

 

Dave Swanson: [00:00:25] Welcome to Go Wrestling Perseverance podcast today I'm here with a guest that is not only a former Marine Corps enlisted soldier who was a sergeant, but he's also run several companies. And we first met it about 10 years ago working for the same company. And not only that, after we he left that company, he started several small companies since then as CTO, G.B. Innovations. He's co-founder, co owner. And not only that, a really good friend. I want to welcome to the show, Tom, big lead. Tom, welcome. Thanks, Dave. Thanks for having me. All right. As we know, we go wrestling perseverance, podcast, the audience. We jump right into the story. And I'm pretty sure that they're going to be impressed with this.

 

Tom Beighley: [00:01:08] All right. Well, you know, I thought a lot about this. You know, I've teased each other about, you know, picking one because there's so many in my life to pick from. I don't know if that's just a sign of what's to come or not, but neither here nor there. So the storm and to share with you today is kind of a it's a it's a little emotional at times, somewhat to try to steer clear of that. But so this is about two and a half years ago. I left actually about three years ago, I left the company that we worked together at because we had lost a lot of work. It was contract based. So we fell out of a lot of good faced and clients and moved into a role with a former boss of mine. We started a company doing the same thing, strategic consulting for the government, mainly Department of Defense. And we made a go at it. It wasn't necessarily a failed endeavor, but one that we just decided to dissolve after a period time where lack of work was just lack of work. There's a lot of big firms that have, you know, as you know, have a lot of tenure and have a lot of relationships with those clients. So not having that big company reputation in front of us and having access to those people, it was just something that I was a little bit more difficult to crack than we anticipated. So anyway, during that time, I was going through a pretty rough patch. My marriage won't get too far into those details, but there was just a lot of things going on that weren't generally acceptable. There was it was kind of a torture period for me. We had moved to Florida, as a matter of fact, to to take a contract working with that company. And it wasn't the place I wanted to be. In fact, I was there for two months. My wife left and went back here to San Antonio and started bartending or staying in L.A.. And, you know, kind of just just doing things that I didn't think was consistent with, you know, a spouse. And it really beat me up, really tore me up. It was pretty, you know, like I said, it was torture to me. I ended up moving back and tried to patch things up, gotten to have started a streamlined life a little bit, picked up some sales and supplements and things just weren't getting any better. They spiraled out of control. As a matter of fact, it's a lot of alcohol and they had really violent behavior, a lot of lies, a lot of deceit, a lot of turning people a
