Jocko Willink is a retired Navy SEAL. Jocko has taken what he learned from the military and is teaching others how to live their life the same way, including our kids. He lives by a code. A code that anyone can develop for themselves. Jocko holds himself to these standards everyday. This is the Way of the Warrior…

He’s also written books about this code: “Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win,” a book I loved and highly recommend. And most recently he published two books in his children’s series: “Way of the Warrior Kid: From Wimpy to Warrior the Navy SEAL Way” and “Marc’s Mission: Way of the Warrior Kid.”
