Powerful Interviews

Q: Why was the Federal Reserve meeting in Jackson Hole this week?
A: It was held in a few different locations in the late 1970s, but Jackson Hole has been the location since 1981. The conference was placed there partly because Paul Volcker, the then-Federal Reserve Chairman, wanted to attend the great fly fishing in the area, which is held in late August.
Q: What areas of the equity markets got pounded this week and why?
A: Athletic stocks such as Dick’s Sporting Goods, Foot Locker, and Peloton (again) dropped over 30% each after recently reporting disappointing earnings and lowered forward guidance.
Q: Why should investors use McGowanGroup Wealth Management (MGWM) to update their investment plan?
A: At the McGowanGroup “The Team That Cares” provides investors with a clear and realistic investment plan that includes designing and managing a tailored portfolio of great assets with growth potential.

NetWorth Radio’s Dallas Business Leadership Series: Spencer McGowan Interviews Ryan “Birdman” Parrott about the Red Coat Challenge!

Former Navy SEAL and Founder of two nonprofit organizations benefitting Veterans and First Responders, is originally from Detroit, Michigan. Birdman enlisted in the Navy after watching the Twin Towers collapse on 9/11 and served eight years as a U.S. Navy SEAL attached to SEAL Team SEVEN, completing three combat tours to Iraq before being assigned to Advanced Training Command as an Instructor.
In 2005, while serving in Iraq, Birdman was riding atop a Humvee manning the gun turret in enemy territory, when his vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED), causing a detonation and throwing him from the Humvee. Birdman regained composure with his face and hands burned and witnessed his fellow team members suffer devastating burn and blast injuries. His entire team survived their injuries and went back to operating.​
In 2012, Birdman established Sons of the Flag to help Veteran and First Responder burn survivors and their families find the help and medical attention they truly deserve. He recognized that burn care treatments and advancements had not been evolving as other forms of injuries, so he made it his mission to do something about it!
He is also the founder of the Birds Eye View Project, addressing the extreme needs of Veterans and First Responders through extreme sports.
Birdman, by dedicating himself to serving veterans and supporting suicide prevention, launched The Human Performance Project. This concept was to take health and wellness to the next level of human performance. The launch event is the opportunity of a lifetime: 7 continents in 7 days including skydives, distance runs, and even a snowball fight in Antarctica!
In the midst of running two nonprofit organization, Birdman also authored “Sons of the Flag: Real Accounts from the last 100 years of American Service”, a book dedicated to relaying a selection of real stories of American Heroes.
