Raise your hand if this sounds familiar...
You find yourself wondering precisely when your paycheck is going to hit your account... counting on that couple days early for military pay from USAA (or Navy Fed).
You have heard of the VA Loan, but have no idea that you can leverage it into a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio.
You want to have more income coming in but do not have the ability to add another job or time-consuming to do list to your plate.
You're wishing you could actually choose to re-enlist or or retire without feeling forced to keep going because of money or hardship. OR you want to be able to try to enjoy your time in service without your family hating you for it.
(This book is for you if ANY OF THEM do!)
Introduction to ideas you may have heard of but likely don't know the down and dirty of how they can work for you.
How does this sound?
A blueprint for how to clearly define what you personally need
The breakdown of precisely what you will need to get there
The build-up, this is your kick in the butt showing you how to execute even if you don't have time on your side
The finisher: now you know the ideas, have the tools you need, and a clear path to get where you want to go. We talk about why it's important and how to make it easy
Even the maximum amount of time you can serve in the military leaves you with a whole lifetime post military.
What if you could understand how to maximize whatever amount of time you spend in duty (or married to it) so that you could choose the lifestyle you want?
What if you could actually enjoy the pride in serving your country because you do not have financial stress?
What if you could better comprehend the constraints the military community faces so you could "support our troops" from a deeper understanding?
What if you could do it now?
HURRY UP AND WAIT? NAH...
"I wish I had this when I joined the Air Force. It should be a handbook issued to every military member today. I know Julie is one of us, she gets it and she could not have possibly done a better job of delivering the information clearly. She also pokes some fun at the stereotypes of the military and somehow doesn't take the material too seriously... but when you're done you feel like she's slapped you across the face to wake up and you're excited to thank her for that slap."

I was once briefed on IED's via a PowerPoint presentation... I know what it feels like to be taught how to not die. But what the military couldn't teach me was how to live.
The military is focused on its' mission, no one can blame it for that... the issue is how easy it is for the extensive training we receive to become a crutch. In other words, you may realize you have been waiting on your branch (or the DOD) to brief you on how to build and live your life that exists outside of your military service.
It wasn't until AFTER I got out of Active Duty it that I began to understand everything available to me - and all the opportunity I had missed while I was in.
I built a successful business helping military members and their families learn how to leverage those opportunities (not just the VA Loan benefit).
I have had the honor of helping thousands build extra income, larger nest eggs, be more self-sufficient, and freedom for themselves to travel or pursue passions.
This book will teach you the proven strategies that have helped my clients, and the hard lessons learned along the way.

LET'S BREAK it DOWN
To provide a resource for the military community to learn these proven strategies.
Many times people come to CalzaCo and are a ways away from being able to take the next step in their journey. I wanted to provide a solid resource to help meet people wherever they were. Also, to be able to support more widely - outside of the local Luke Air Force Base community.
I included notes in the book on how to use strategies if you do not have access to military benefits.
"In The Arena" is designed with military members and veterans in mind. I am passionate about helping military members learn how to be self-sufficient and get ahead. HOWEVER, the strategies in the book easily translate to the civilian world and some chapters eve contain a helpful note on how to use a strategy if you don't have the VA Loan benefit or the predictability of military pay.
All of my personal profits from the book sales are being donated to Fighter Country Foundation.
You can buy the book and support a good cause. All profits from book sales the first year are going back to the military community.

My husband is active duty and we hadn’t really thought to much of what our life will look like once he gets out. This book put so many things into perspective for me. Not only did Julie have great insight on goals, how to achieve them, get out and stay out of debt but how to make plans and implement them to get great results for life and retirement. I have taken so much from this book and now have goals and plans for the future. I will definitely keep it to refer back to.
Nearly 20 years ago it was my time to transition from military to civilian life. The military has a program that helps with that, but it didn’t really help. If this book existed then I would have had more confidence to move on.
Honestly, I still haven’t moved on. I afraid of what comes next. My husband is military and will be retiring in a few years. Julie’s book gives me to courage and guidance to set a new goal. I am motivated and ready to do what I have to afraid to do.
“In the Arena” is a great read for anyone who needs a push to do what you need to be successful. I bought the kindle version for myself but I plan to buy the hardcover for my husband.
This book should be handed out to everyone and I mean everyone; whether you are leaving high school, entering the military, or just out here with me in the workplace. It’s a reminder to look beyond your everyday job, to look at your future security, and invest in it as early and as intelligently as you can. She hands you seriously valuable lessons it takes people YEARS to learn in degree programs and others you can only learn in life lessons. Priceless! Will need to keep this book close for years to come to refer back to these tools.
