"Exceptional book written by someone who has been there and done that! Uses a simple methodology to construct what most entrepreneurs find difficult and simply overlook it because they feel it is too overwhelming. Highly Recommend this book for anyone planning to go into business for themselves or planning to expand their business."

"Business planning revolution!
I've been an entrepreneur in the agricultural industry for 8 years and this is the business planning/modeling system I've been waiting for. I teach it to veterans and aspiring farmers as a no nonsense method for planning business and production models in a quick and to-the-point manner.

This is the future of business plans no doubt. Great job Michael!"

"As an operational Project Manager for a large state agency, this effort by Mr. Penney will quickly become the ‘Gold Standard’ concerning planning and managing projects within my organization. It is filled full of relevant information that is applicable to any industry. Its content demonstrates and gives solid examples of how to take tasks, regardless of size or complexity, and systematically decompose them through a detailed planning process."

- David Hamilton 
Academy Training Developer 

Texas Middle School

"As a civilian and Patriot, I began listening to Penney's podcast for the 'Sea Stories' and was amazed at how equally entertained and intrigued by the business aspect of his post-service life. I was completely immersed in the idea of the 5 paragraph format, but the plan didn't directly apply to my career as a middle school teacher...at first. After listening to the tutorials and reading the template, I was able to modify the amazing 5 paragraph business plan so that it was applicable to daily activities in my classroom. The format is extremely easy to follow and adapt to any aspect of your life that you are looking to make the most out of, based on your passions and desires. Hands down beneficial for everyone!!"

Recommendations for Michael J. Penney...

 

I’ve had the pleasure of serving with Mike in a variety of capacities. My first experience working with him was when I was a student and he was a combat marksmanship instructor. Mike displayed a passion for teaching, mentoring, and inspiring. His enthusiasm and personality were contagious and students gravitated towards Mike. He made a lasting impression from my time as a student. Fast forward a few years, Mike walks into my patrol base in Sangin, Afghanistan. He was serving on the Police Advisor Team and was there to rebuild the local police force. Again, I watched as Mike brought his passion to his work. He inspired my Marines through his personality on a daily basis. Coupled with his personality, leadership, and experience, Mike brought a mental and physical vigor to the unit that was undeniable and once again I watched as Marines gravitated towards him. Mike’s rare combination of personality, leadership, passion, expert technical skills, and drive make him someone I would actively seek to serve with again in any capacity.

-JP Carter

Procurement Manager at Coca-Cola Beverages Northeast 

I've collaborated with Michael on several business initiatives and find his approach to challenges incredibly inspiring! Michael's "Can-Do" spirit and drive for excellence is extremely motivating and very contagious.

Michael uses his talents as a Podcaster @Cigars&SeaStories and his BizDev experience @Bunker Labs to craft a collaborative environment for the Veteran Community. Giving Veterans a stage, and a voice to share with others what matters to them.

Michael is a true product of his environment, surrounding himself with like-minded Veterans and Business Professionals has given him a significant advantage over his Non-Veteran contemporaries.

I am honored to be considered Michael's friend and colleague. Keep adding Value to the world!

Mike has done a great job leading the efforts of Bunker Labs in the Raleigh area. As a Marine and entrepreneur, he immediately gains the trust of the audience. He is able to quickly put everyone at ease which helps facilitate dynamic discussions that ultimately help the entrepreneurs in the room succeed.

I had the privilege of getting to know Michael through TEDx Raleigh and subsequently through his work at The Bunker RDU.

Michael is a dynamic speaker and storyteller, a great networker and someone I'm happy to call friend and colleague.

I would highly recommend Michael to any organization looking for a business leader and speaker.

Design Thinker & Director of Strategic Business Development at Capitol B Creative Studios and WRAL Digital

I met Michael just weeks after he brought down the house at Ted X Raleigh in 2016 with his talk “What's your IED? How to add value in explosive situations.” Google it!

His ability to translate his military leadership experience into narrative form is inspiring. He was the first person on our list to speak at “Ethics in Service”, a regionally focused event of the Research Triangle Park Rotary discussing the relationship of ethics and leadership to service. He set a tone for what turned out to be our most celebrated event in years.

Michael's charisma is deafening and his empathy, like his storytelling ability is mature beyond his years. Enlisting him to speak to your team, group, or employees will be money and time well spent.
