MC - AKA Jason Hoschouer was the very first guest I ever had on The Police Podcast...
I knew at some point I would have him back on. We've kept in contact since that first episode and I've been an avid listener to his podcast, The Crossover Show that he co-hosts with Justin Bieber.
MC has been online talking about his duties since 2008 and letting the world know, "If got stopped, you deserved it." He talks about some of the current events that we've been seeing around North America, finances, quality of life and what he thinks are the most important things in life.
Last time MC was on the show he talked about his interest in financial matters after going through debt struggles and finding his way out through training he received from Dave Ramsey.
Well, MC is now taken this to the next level developing the, "Motorcop Mindset" which is a system to help people improve their lives.
MC has always been an author focusing on blog writing, but now he has just published a new book on focusing on budgeting for the first responders, "Badges And Budgets - Personal Finances From A Law Enforcement Perspective".
I bought MC's book and it is filled with actionable content and financially sound advice. If all you do is implement what MC talks about in this book, you'll be better of than you are right now...take it to the next level and...well, let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Mike McCormack is the President of the Toronto Police Association, the largest of it's kind in Canada representing over 8,000 members both sworn and civilian.
Mike comes from a deep policing tradition and like he mentioned in the interview, his dad went up the management side to become Chief and Mike chose the other side to become president.
I'm not sure which title I would rather hold, Chief or president. What the two men have in common is an incredible duty of service to others and Mike has taken the police association in a direction that has increased awareness of the importance to tell the message of what it takes, "to protect those, who protect others."
During this episode, Mike talks about the Toronto Police Transformational Task Force*, public safety, "Carding" and offers advice to other associations.
I hope you enjoy this episode.

* When this episode was recorded, Mike had not seen the final report so any comments he made at the time were not based on the report itself.
Two incredible power houses in their own fields joined forces to help parents writing the book, "Outsmarting Your Kids Online - A Safety Handbook For Overwhelmed Parents".
I read this book in about two days. I know some of you could do it in about three hours. It's an easy read but more importantly it's got immediately actionable things you can do to help protect your family.
Amber and Michael talk about the must do's, the need to do's and the should do's that can make an immediate difference in your awareness and knowledge of not only what is happening in your children's life, but what they are doing in their online environment.
More importantly than that, you can recognize the hazards and dangers that might be knocking on their virtual door trying to get into their real world.
Amber and Michael have shared their expertise in the cyber world with you in this book in a way that even the most tech challenged individual can get what they are talking about, relate it to your life and show you just how important the information is.
Think you know everything there is to know? Think again. I've studied both Amber and Michael. I've listened to them teach, I've read their books, I've taken their courses and this book still taught me plenty.
ABOUT MICHAEL AND AMBER...
