DISCOVER & EXECUTE YOUR NEXT MISSION

FOR VETERANS BY VETERANS

Your Strength

At The Mission After, we recognize the valor and discipline that defined your service.

Transitioning from military to civilian life isn't just about changing routines; it's about transforming your entire approach to life.

With our unique blend of cutting-edge and time-honored techniques, we're here to guide you through this pivotal transformation.

The Path to Reintegration

You've mastered the art of war.

Now, let's channel that mastery into conquering the challenges of civilian life.

We understand the blend of psychological prowess and cultural adaptation required.

At The Mission After, we're not just acknowledging your past—we're helping you to forge your future.

Discover the Commander Within

Unleash the leader inside you. It's time to take command of your life with the same authority you once wielded in service.

Revitalize Mind and Body

Our tailored physical protocols are designed to rewire years of military conditioning, breathing new life into your brain and body. Prepare to meet civilian life's diverse demands with vigor.

Master New Forms of Communication

Learning to express yourself in a world unfamiliar with military hierarchy is crucial. We equip you with the skills to connect, share, and lead among those who've never known the meaning of "following orders."

Redefine Your Surroundings

Take control of your environment in a way that supports your new journey. It's not just about adapting; it's about thriving.

Embrace Your True Mission

It's time to identify and commit to a mission that resonates with your core values—the mission that truly matters.

What once made you excellent may be holding you back

It's easy to have a sense of purpose when someone consistently hands you a mission that others agree is vital and important.

Try figuring out your true purpose and passion when it's all on you.

It's easy to be married when you're hardly ever home.

Try being in the same space day after day.

It's easy to ignore your health when the solution was always take Motrin and drink more water.

Try being healthy with a cabinet full of medications from the VA that they wouldn't have dared prescribe you when you were in.

Dear Fellow Veteran,

It's been 18 years since I left the service and I've successfully learned how to develop a thriving business, community, health, and overall lifestyle. This is coming from a guy that had no plan, little hope, and zero direction when he got out. All I knew is that I was ready for the next chapter.

This letter is to you if you experienced anything like I did:

  • No idea of what of I was going to do when I got out besides go to college.

  • Lacking a sense of purpose and mission aside from paying the bills.

  • Coming home only to find that it was difficult to connect with family and friends.

  • Feeling of being alone even in the presence of others.

  • Surrounded by people who didn't have a purpose or mission either.

  • Feeling like a loser, left behind by society.

  • People saying, "thank you for your service,"' and unsure how to respond. Felt like an empty gesture.

  • Embarassed and lacking pride about my service. Feeling like I could have done more.

  • Lack of trust in the VA and let down by the system.

I didn't think I deserved a better life. But my undying perserverance got the best of me. The words have repeated in my head daily for over two decades, "one foot in front of the other." A gift I had received in military training.

In the last 18 years I've learned A LOT.

And that's what I'm here to share with you today.

In service,

Mike Bledsoe
