Hi John,

Thank you for your service. Could you provide a little more detail on what kind of business development work that interests you? Or share your LinkedIn page, if you have one. If you don’t have one yet, I suggest starting there.

Books/Reading I find impactful:

Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don't
James Collins

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
Malcolm Gladwell

Atomic Habits
