Tim Lawson not only provided Ben and Josh with a ton of valuable points, but he also inspired a great conversation. Ben and Josh reflect on what they know and what they've heard from people about life in the military. (Josh served and Ben has many friends who served).
Your hosts also talked about Tim Lawson's viewpoint on honesty versus transparency. While both honesty and transparency involve telling the truth, when you tell it makes the difference. That viewpoint has changed the way Ben thinks of himself, considering himself a transparent person. Now, he sees himself as honest because he doesn't always offer up details, but he doesn't hide them when asked. Josh also provides an example of when transparency isn't always the best solution according to robots in Interstellar (on Amazon and iTunes).
Josh and Ben also talk about the type of life that a small business own lives. Is it just a pie in the sky, all the time is free time, and we can do whatever we want when we want? While it is more flexible, it isn't exactly that life.
Ben and Josh also talk about Tim Lawson's podcasts (he hosts more than one), and specifically 1, 2, Many: Veteran Suicide. The timing of Tim's episode and this show is interesting because a friend of Ben and his wife (who is a Vet), committed suicide last Friday. His family set up a fund to help pay for these unexpected funeral bills.
