Conrad spent 13 years in the military between the Coast Guard and National Guard. Throughout his time in service, he struggled with alcohol and talks openly about his personal struggle against suicide. His understanding of that fight led him to found the Shot At Dawn Project, a veteran suicide solution that uses 'flags' or incidents as triggers to counsel and coach active duty members at the unit level to prevent a future casualty rather than respond to it. Conrad is now a realtor and ultra marathoner, using runs such as the David Goggins Challenge and Moab 240 to raise awareness for veteran suicide and his cause.

Whether you’re in the service for four years or twenty, you have learned skills, led teams, and learned what it takes to execute under pressure. While those past successes are valuable, they don’t always translate to a life or career when you get your DD214.
Join Tim and Brock as they break down the skills and strategies current and former military members are using to build a successful careers on the outside the service.
