The American Vision: Polish Your Star – With Guest – Retired USMC LtCol, Author, Leadership Coach, etc…, Valerie Bérubé


Polish Your Star – The Valerie Bérubé Story

I’m a retired Marine lieutenant colonel, a published author, and a premier authority on making extraordinary leaders. I’m the creator of the GEMS model of leadership. I’ve led thousands of diverse people in different countries around the world, led scores of projects from several million dollars to over half billion dollars, and led significant elements of military operations overseas that often made the headline news.

Thirty-five years ago, as a thirteen-year old kid who was drinking, smoking, and failing school, I was a far cry from anything special.

I had straight D’s on my report cards. I was suspended from school for drinking and getting into fights. I was going nowhere fast.

I grew up in a highly functioning, dysfunctional family and experienced significant adversities. I hear about 75% of people grew up with some degree of significant adversity, so I guess I’m “normal.”

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … TLB
