How to lead the field with Authority Marketing

November 15, 2017 by Terry Kohler

Join Team Veteran as we host a live coaching webcast event tomorrow.  #OneMoreCustomer featuring our business partner Fran Tarkenton.

As you are learning that Team Veteran LLC uses:

  • IDShield
  • LegalShield
  • Small Business & Home-Based Business Legal Plans tied with GoSmallBiz [Fran’s company]
  • Commercial Drivers Legal Plans
  • these employee benefits and more

to create sustainable funding for Hperbaric Oxygen Therapy [HBOT] to help fight the battle of Veteran suicide, TBI & PTS, Fran’s One More Customer is another tool we use to build small business relationships.  Partnered with Team Veteran Foundation and other vetted Veteran charities, we are creating a disruptive innovation.  Yes, there is an app for that; in fact we have a few!

Since one of our missions is to help our fellow Veteran-Owned and community businesses grow their businesses, we are making available to the area businesses along Utah’s Wasatch Front this and the opportunity to network!

Our history with Dr Janathin Miller (Hummingbird)

October 23, 2017 by Gordon Brown

I was introduced to Dr. Janathin Miller (CEO of Antin Engineering; Director of Training at Veterans Training Corporation) in 2010. She had decided to unleash her 36 years of DOD (Department of Defense) contracting experience to assist Veteran Owned Businesses (VOB) and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) excel by helping me to create a Veteran Business Consortium (VBC). A concept similar to my industrial real estate development company called Consortium 44 Development. Her Dad was one of the founders of the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) during WWII which later became the CIA. He retired from the CIA and neither his wife or daughter ever knew he was a spook. The discovery of Dad’s history caused her to dedicate the rest of her life to supporting Veteran owned companies.

Dr. Miller carried a Top Secret Crypto Level 4 security clearance and taught a graduate level Entrepreneurship course at Stanford for the MBA program and at two of our planning meetings she gave three unsolicited endorsements for LegalShield. One endorsement was so strong that she said she writes DA next to a student’s name that does not understand the value as a future entrepreneur of having access to extremely inexpensive legal advice through LegalShield. She said she had used the legal plan for over 25 years and all of her charities had been created using LegalShield.

Planning meeting for Team Veteran LLC

Dr Miller “Hummingbird on Speed” is standing behind the black chair.

15 VOB and SDVOB were sitting around that table wondering if our meaning of DA was the same definition she meant. She finally broke the silence and said, “Gentlemen it stands for “Dumb Ass” and if the DA wasn’t removed before my course ended those students failed.” Her reasoning was if a future entrepreneur didn’t understand the value of having an attorney on call for a small monthly fee, then they were too stupid to be an entrepreneur and would waste the limited SBA funding.

Since the VBC would require some seed money to start and no VOB or SDVOSB was flush with cash, remembering her endorsements of LegalShield, I made a proposal to Dr. Miller. She immediately agreed and offered her Rolodex. Our offer was that we would donate one third of the revenue created through referrals and leads generated from her Rolodex to initially fund the VBC. There were several delays in creating the initial letter that Dr. Miller intended to send to her warm contacts; the delays continued when her partner was diagnosed with advanced Parkinson’s dementia. We had several false starts because of these new priorities in Dr. Miller’s life.

Once the Consortium was self-funding we would continue these donations created by Team Veteran LLC to be used for Veteran’s needs, and the seed to create Team Veteran Foundation was planted. September 13, 2012 Team Veteran Foundation, Inc a 501 (c)(3) was born. Soliciting for corporate or individual donations is extremely difficult because the vast majority of Americans do not support Veterans, 1st Responders and their families.

Dr Janathin Miller died from brain cancer November 11, 2015, the same day I had completed my 38th Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) dive to heal my Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). I had nicknamed Doc the “Hummingbird on Speed” because she was on the move 24/7 working to help Veterans and their families. The day she died I was the first to be contacted at her request to thank me for giving her the nickname which she used often to introduce herself.

Team Veteran LLC has expanded the original idea and included 1st Responders and their families. We have also increased our contribution level to over half of the commissions received from the sale of LegalShield, IDShield, employee benefits, Commercial Drivers License and SmallBiz legal plans to create a corpus to perpetually fund vetted Veteran charities. Contact us to learn more about how you can help stop the Veteran suicide epidemic.

They tell us there’s alternative sustainable fundraising

September 30, 2017 by Terry Kohler

Picture this.  Team Veteran members are chatting with people, many times with those in low or high level decision making positions, that tell us there are other viable, working alternatives to creating sustainable funding, from what we are doing. TVet is still waiting for them to tell us what is working. While we wait for those solutions, let’s listen together to some gentle jam melody. Click the play button below and enjoy while you continue reading.

Team Veteran LLC has been told there are all kinds of funds out there to support [Veteran] charities. Where is it? Besides begging for money, i.e. the typical donations, and grants.  We have also been told by people they are going to reach back to us. We figure they are going to tell us about their currently working sustainable funding program or idea – still waiting!  Only the serious need to reply.  Team Veteran LLC will not be sitting around waiting for those non-serious talkers, because they don’t care about Veterans, their families or children.

Remember the kids in the movie… “Are we there yet?”

Team Veteran LLC gets contacted frequently by individuals with a request to include their business’ cause~mission~purpose on our Resources page, but they have yet to ask us about our causes~missions~purposes.  Let’s see how many ‘please add us to your Resource page’ will contact us if we start saying, “Only the serious Veteran supporters need apply”.  All they see is a Resource page on someone’s web site they hope to add their business/personal gain to.

Still waiting.

As the rest of the world waits for working sustainable funding, 22-30 Veterans a day are dying by suicide.

Team Veteran LLC is using cause marketing to create sustainable funding. Are you still waiting with us? There’s about 54 minutes of this gentle jam melody provided by Jeapordy.

Call to Action

March 19, 2016 by Terry Kohler

We have reached a crisis point with the Protectors of Liberty and Freedom our Veterans and their families. We need your help with this mission.

trumpeter Navy Veteran

The VA’s focus on psychotropic drugs is one of the leading causes of the 22-30 daily Veteran suicides. Suicide ideation is one of the effects of these drugs along with heart, kidney, thyroid and liver damage. Ask yourself, why would anyone prescribe 5-25 drugs daily for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) when there are drug-free alternatives? Albert Einstein said it best when he defined Insanity; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Team Veteran is creating sustainable funds to support Veteran organizations that focus on Integrated medical treatments for PTS and TBI such as equine therapy, service animals, guide dogs, HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy), meditation and aromatherapy to name a few. The VA will not pay for these alternative treatments because they are outside their agenda.

We support other Veteran charities that recognize the Team Veteran motto “The First Cost of Freedom is Supporting Our Veterans”. Albert Einstein said it best when he defined Insanity; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The current method of raising these funds is to Beg, (AKA solicit donations) which means a large portion of the money raised goes to the fundraiser.

To create the larger donations required for the sustainable funding for these charities, Team Veteran decided to utilize LegalShield and Kroll’s IDShield, two employee benefits that are commission-based products. The same products endorsed by Morgan Wright, a Cyber-Security Analyst, interviewed on Fox News Live regarding medical identity theft.

You’ve seen and heard LifeLock advertised on TV and radio (Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh), this comparison quickly shows the difference between LifeLock and Kroll’s IDShield. If you purchase IDShield and or LegalShield through Team Veteran you will also be helping to create sustainable funding to support Veteran and First-Responder charities. There is also a small business legal plan available for companies with less than 100 employees.

CALL TO ACTION: Will you join us and together we will create sustainable funds to support Veteran charities nationwide? Any questions please call 602-561-7805, or fill out this contact form

Very Respectfully,
Team Veteran

Added the .org to a copy of the Team Veteran logo.  Allowing TVet logo to be used stand alone yet give the url of the web site.  Also added Gordon Brown’s mantra “The First Cost of Freedom is Supporting Our Veterans”.  As true today as it was the day he first spoke those words.

Giving back to Veterans, 1st Responders and their families

March 16, 2016 by Terry Kohler

Every 48-minutes or less, a Veteran dies by suicide. A number of those are sadly followed by family members. 1st Responders also are affected by lose in fire and on-off duty situations.  Our partnership continues to grow with vetted charities to save as many lives as possible. A large portion of every membership available from LegalShield & IDShield purchased through Team Veteran members is donated directly to those worthy causes.  We don’t ask for donations or handouts.  We create sustainable funds because people/businesses keep these no-contract memberships for their value and money savings.

Are you ready to benefit from services that helps you, while generating donations, without extra out-of-pocket giving.

Team Veteran members created a unique win-win-win.  Are you ready to participate?

Oxygen Instead of Medication

January 24, 2016 by Gordon Brown

Oxygen Instead of Medication

Daily there are 22 to 30 Veterans dying by suicide and many believe these are completely voluntary acts. Many say suicide is a cowardly act and I say these people do not know the facts behind these suicides.

Prescription Medication Spilling From an Open Medicine Bottle

Currently the protocol used by the VA for treating Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is the use of psychotropic drugs. Since a TBI is a physical injury of the brain, why would they use psychotropic drugs for the treatment of that injury? Treating a TBI with psychotropic drugs makes as much sense as treating a broken leg with the same drugs, both are physical injuries and neither is going to have positive results from the drugs.

Are fund raisers abusing Veterans?

December 22, 2015 by Terry Kohler

Those who understand the ‘How’ of Team Veteran’s mission, know that TVet does not solicit nor accept ‘Other People’s Money’ (OPM). 100% of the donations Team Veteran creates come from our profits from the sale of LegalShield and IDShield and goes directly to vetted charities who support Veterans, POW/MIAs, First-Responders and their families.

The video below demonstrates the reason why TVet’s program for creating funds is so critically needed; as you will see the arena of fund raising has become such a self-serving facet of (more…)
