Borne the Battle #188: Justin Nassiri: Navy Veteran, Entrepreneur, Host of Beyond the Uniform Podcast


After transitioning out of the military, Veterans often wonder, What’s next? This important question leads to wondering about a next career. Some often feel as though it’s too late, or that they’re too old to pursue a new goal or dream job. Navy Veteran Justin Nassiri thinks otherwise.

On this week’s episode of Borne the Battle, Nassiri shares his backstory and insight into how he was able to transition into civilian life while achieving his dreams. As a Stanford MBA alumnus, an disciplined entrepreneur and successful consultant, Nassiri’s thoughts on transition prove invaluable.

In this podcast, Nassiri discusses:

  • Key mentors during his time in service
  • Indispensable life experiences that guided him to his early and continued success
  • Stories of Veterans who were able to make it to the top
  • Practical advice for those looking to get started in a new career
