15. Living the Simple Life and Beginning Stages of Ranching with James Phillips
Show Notes

James Phillips, AKA "Phil" is a SOCOM Veteran who truly found comfort in nature, outdoors and around animals after he came back from deployment, Phil grew up in the farming space in the UK and moved to the USA when he was a young boy. He has always enjoyed being outside and feels grounded in that space. He and his wife, Maddie just moved to Idaho to start their dream farm and business. Phil also trains horses and helps cowboy on nearby ranches and really enjoys the lifestyle. We talk about that amazing non-profit NODENS who help veterans reset after getting back from deployment by integrating archery, hunting and outdoor skills. I was lucky enough to see the first class go through the process last year at a friend's ranch which was their retreat spot for the recipients, which is how Bryce and I met Phil. This is a fun conversation I know you will love!
