Mike Shaw was a police officer for 10 years where he served various roles in patrol and drug task force operations. He took training seriously and found ways to improve his fitness, shooting abilities, and tactics. He began a couple of years ago growing his social media with the intent to help others, motivate people (especially police) to train and stay fit.
This is where I saw quite a bit of crossover because my brand is also geared towards people who see protection as more than just a job because we all know it requires a lifestyle to truly be able to perform at a respectable level with regards to our craft. We cover a wide variety of topics during this interview, some controversial, and some will simply reinforce what it is you already know.
At the end of the day, Mike Shaw is the type of guy I’d like to have with me when the rubber meets the pavement because he puts the hours in to be the type of guy who can be depended on and that’s what I hope to see more professionals strive to be like within the first responder and private security communities… The funny thing is that this way of life and these principles are also parallel within the civilian world so put in the work because in order to be the man you’ve got to become the man and that requires a process.
