Hi, I'm Jan Rutherford.

I am a former Green Beret and a successful entrepreneur, podcast host, wilderness expedition leader, and author of the book, The Littlest Green Beret

My experience comes from the business world, the military and academia; but my philosophy is from a confluence of Sparta’s discipline, Socrates’ self-awareness, Aristotle’s courage, Emerson’s self-reliance, and Thoreau’s reflective seclusion. 

My coaching and speaking work also includes leading expeditions with executives and military veterans, and sharing leadership insights from those experiences.
