Melissa Lowe Book

Melissa Nelson Lowe’s Second Book

Writing a book is like skydiving; the only way to understand the experience is to actually do it. As any author can attest, putting one’s thoughts onto paper for the world to digest is intimidating and challenging. So, big props to Melissa Nelson Lowe on the launch of her second book, Charlie Bravo – Descent Into Darkness and Danger

Book Synopsis

Charlie Bravo takes a twist to the darker realities of government conspiracies, snitches, and failed skydiving world record attempts. Roger Nelson has to find a way out of Continuing Criminal Enterprises charges and tax fraud that lingers a life-long prison sentence over his head.

DropZone Marketing To Bring Buyers and Sellers Together

Interested in buying a dropzone? Interested in selling your DZ? If you fall into one of these categories – contact us!

We have identified a pain point in the industry which we want to solve – pairing buyers and sellers together privately. We’ve had several clients who’ve expressed the interest to sell their DZ’s but don’t wish to put it out there on for a variety of reasons.

If you’re looking to buy or sell… we’d like to speak with you!

James La Barrie Visits the Golden Knights and Zappos 

On August 28th, James La Barrie had the honor of making a presentation to the Golden Knights at their headquarters at Fort Bragg, NC for their quarterly safety meeting. La Barrie’s topic was about public relations and managing the media during a crisis.

On September 14th, I (James) flew to Las Vegas to attend an ‘Evening with Simon Sinek and Tony Hsieh.’ This was an honor for me as these two men are my business heroes. Tony Hsieh’s vision for Zappos in his book ‘Deliving Happiness’ profoundly changed the way I viewed business management. Sinek’s message in ‘Start With Why’ and ‘Leaders Eat Last’ cemented my own belief and challenges me in how I run my own business and consult with other business operators. It was a night I won’t soon forget.
