A year and a half ago in a late hour, I received a phone call from an entrepreneur whom I worked with two years earlier. He was very concerned and told me that the investors he was negotiating with for more than a year, decided to redraw from the agreement.

Kevin shared with me his biggest failure, and not surprisingly, it was about… marketing.
“I started Gov Cloud Networks in 2013,” Kevin told me in our interview on my REACH OR MISS podcast. “After I retired from the Navy, I worked as a corporate executive for many years. During that time, I proved my expertise in applying advanced technology to seminal intractable business challenges. That often led to the development of Nobel Internet Phased Information Brokerage Businesses Models that would interact with mobile devices.
I was doing a lot of work with the military, the government, and the intelligence community; they were the only people that had these large global networks and had the money and the urgency to actually build and deploy the solutions that I was thinking of.Keep Reading »
