154: "I don't want people to give me things. I want to earn things." Trevor Maxwell Reinvents Himself After 20 Years of Service - Part 1 of 2
Jen Amos welcomes her US VetWealth colleague and Creator of Military Money Mistakes, Trevor Maxwell, into a two-part interview. Trevor shares his first memory of meeting Jen's husband and business partner, Scott R. Tucker. At the time, they discussed Trevor's decision to take a different career path after retiring from the Navy. He continues to reflect on his journey in the last 5 years since retiring, including his mindset shift of seeing himself as a "new guy" in the civilian world. Trevor leaves us for part one of this interview explaining why he decided to pursue a career that was completely different from his work in the military to leave that part of his life behind.
