Patriot Principles Boot Camp

Elite warriors are elite because they train more, push harder, and stretch their ability far beyond what the summer soldier can even imagine. BUDS2shutterstock_1194182 Which are you? Elite warrior or summer soldier? Patriot Academy’s mission is to train champions who change the world. No Olympic champion ever attended one seminar or training session and then showed up and won a gold medal. If you want to be a champion who changes the world, it’s time to dig deeper, work harder, get grounded, and sharpen your counsel like iron sharpens iron. 2014-02-02 09.10.50 pmThis Patriot Principles Boot Camp will make you stronger and take you deeper than anything we have done through Patriot Academy before. This is NOT for the lazy or faint of heart. Be ready to have your convictions both challenged and strengthened. This is your chance to dive into the LIFT principles with Patriot Academy founder, Rick Green, and other leaders. shutterstock_150250187If you could sit around a campfire with Rick and other mentors in your life, what questions would you ask? What would you want to learn from them? For eight consecutive weeks, Rick will be hosting an online campfire chat for all Patriot Academy Alumni that would like to attend. The price of admission is zero dollars, but is not free. You will pay for this Boot Camp with your time and effort and you will be a better leader for it. In fact, if you complete the boot camp, Rick will pay you! (see below) Expect to spend 5 hours each week during this Boot Camp. Assignments prior to each campfire chat will consist of reading books or watching online videos (approximately 3 hours each week) and a one to two hour online chat each Sunday evening. We will be diving deep into the LIFT principles and applying them to current issues. Weekly online sessions will be recorded in case you have a scheduling conflict once in awhile, but if you are unable to attend at least half of the sessions live, you probably should wait until next year to attempt the Boot Camp. If you successfully complete the Boot Camp, you will automatically receive $75 off any Regional Patriot Academy and $150 off the National Alumni Academy. If this will be your Fourth or greater year to attend Patriot Academy, you will also receive an additional $100 off your tuition.

BOOT CAMP OVERVIEW

This course will include 8 live campfire chats with Rick Green (and special guests), as well as a few recorded webinars, reading material, and Rick’s Constitution Class recorded at Independence Hall. Bookmark this page as the first place to go for determining what you need to study before each live fireside chat. rg-homepage-constitution-classes Each week you can scroll down to the next lesson, click on the link to that lesson and you will be taken to detailed instructions and links to the live webinar, recorded video, tests, etc. for that week. You are on the honor system to not review the tests prior to actually taking them and to only use resources when the test is clearly marked as an open book test. Included in this course is your opportunity to visit the very place where both our Declaration of Independence and Constitution were crafted…Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In these video lectures, Rick will take you inside the cradle of liberty and teach on the Constitution.
