A Veteran's Journey to
Entrepreneurship Success |
Phil Oakley

Military Service to Business Success

🎙️I’m beyond excited to share another inspiring story with you on this another episode of Marketing Boost Solutions Podcast. Join me with Philip Anthony Oakley, a distinguished veteran with a 22-year career in the U.S. Army as a military policeman and intelligence officer. He shares his transformative journey of patience and learning, filled with resilience and dedication

  • The Transition from Military to Entrepreneurship

    One of the most significant challenges Phil faced was transitioning from the military to entrepreneurship. He emphasized the importance of patience and understanding that success doesn't happen overnight. Phil's own experience with his government contracting business taught him that mistakes are teaching points, and it's crucial to learn the nuances of any new venture.

  • Advice to the Younger Generation
    When asked what advice he would give to young men today, Phil reflected on the value of the journey. He shared that the trials and tribulations one goes through are formative, much like how heat and pressure create diamonds. His message was clear: embrace the setbacks, as they will shape you and prepare you for future success.

  • The Patriot Fest Music Festival

    Phil's involvement in organizing the Patriot Fest music festival is a testament to his commitment to celebrating patriotism and supporting veteran-related organizations. The festival aims to unite people beyond political affiliations, focusing on the core values of God, family, and country. Phil and his co-organizer, Matt Holmes, faced initial pushback but remained steadfast in their mission to create a non-political, patriotic event.

  • "Dying Confession" - A Dramedy Inspired by Military Bonds

    Phil also discussed his book, "Dying Confession," which blends drama and comedy to depict the deep bonds and friendships formed in the military. The book, inspired by Phil's first duty assignment, includes a poignant scene set in Iraq and aims to honor the sacrifices of service members.

  • Supporting Military Charities Through Literature

    The release of "Dying Confession" on Memorial Day weekend serves a dual purpose: to share Phil's story and to raise awareness for charities supporting military personnel and their families. Phil plans to host a book signing event where donations to these charities will be encouraged, highlighting the ongoing need to support our veterans.

  • The Importance of Family and Legacy

    Family plays a central role in Phil's life, as evidenced by his touching stories about his stepfather, grandfather, and the passing of his older brother. He also spoke of a song written by his son, which reflects on the life lessons and positive influences that have shaped their family's journey.

  • Patriot Fest: More Than Just Music

    The upcoming Patriot Fest is more than a music festival; it's a celebration of patriotism and a tribute to military personnel and their sacrifices. With a lineup of veterans, Navy SEALs, Green Berets, and more, the event promises to be a powerful display of love for the country.
