Tell us about yourself

Being a 31-year law enforcement officer, I realize that today's society has changed over the years, and there is a huge need for quality, affordable and easy-to-understand training to learn how to protect themselves or loved ones. Skills don't come naturally, so training is extremely important. Whether personal security or corporate security, we need to be able to protect and defend ourselves until help arrives. KMSC Training was created to bring affordable training to the civilian need.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

KMSC Training is a highly rated and acclaimed training academy that has taught hundreds of people, churches, and businesses to enhance their personal or corporate safety.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Marketing and getting clients from interest and asking questions about our training to get clients to schedule our training consistently. Many calls come in asking about KMSC, and they seem interested, but I never hear from them again.
