Many of us for better or worse, live or die by our skill level to effectively operate the features of our smartphones.

Interviewer’s question: That sounds like a good start, but it’s all entry-level security jobs. How did you break into executive protection?
“I knew if I was going to advance my career and eventually obtain the kinds of opportunities that I wanted, I would have to go through a well-respected executive protection training course. I did my due diligence and read great reviews about Lasorsa and Associates’ Executive Protection Training Course taught by Joe Lasorsa, Jr. I did my first course there.

“I’m in Houston now for the past 7 days working a security detail for an area retailer. I’m assigned to the 2000 – 0800 shift. I’ve worked similar types of details in my home area but this is my first out of state detail. I’m no expert but I know lots of guys and ladies are looking to do this work so I thoughts I’d share some observations.
