Travis Collier


Are you following your blueprint for greatness, or someone else’s design for mediocrity?

Jason is a struggling comedian in Hollywood. Dropped out of UCLA and bartending at two Boulevard bars at night, Jason is lost. But while mixing drinks, he discovered he could make people laugh. He started standing in line at open mics—and started to love it. Unfortunately, he’s trapped in this pattern of being a “struggling comedian”. This in a city where every Starbucks is full of “struggling screenwriters”.

By considering several of his comedic and artistic inspirations, Jason began to strip away the nonessential and focused in on what made him a great comedian, his ability to connect. He tripled down on his connection and his commentary, changed who he viewed as an audience, and transformed his identify from being struggling to successful. He did this through the SCALE process.

Author Travis Collier has written a book that’s as much a kick in the seat as Seth Godin’s Linchpin. Travis has you consider and eradicate the ways you’re dissipating your energy, forces you to consider the core of your greatness, then takes you through a set of inciting and insightful inquiries to arrive at the experience of living an amazing life by design, not an average life by default.

Through Jason’s example, Travis takes readers through a series of five revelations, with the ultimate goal for readers to walk away and immediately start living differently. On the other side of SCALE. readers will view their unique contributions to the world through a perspective no one else can understand, but many more will appreciate. Travis has distilled his 14 years of military experience and 5 years of consulting expertise into an intuitive formula to push clients towards a breakthrough they wouldn’t have experienced or considered before.

There are several stories and inspirations here in SCALE to help you:

  • Identify ways you can simplify your life
  • Determine your unique source of abundance and creativity
  • Design a new life built around you being your best, most successful self
  • Leverage your impact wider than you imagined
  • Embrace the experience of manifesting your core intentions

Command Your Transition

You’ve chosen to leave the military. How do you give up what you don’t need on the inside to make it on the outside?

The military has an entire structure pressing you into life in uniform. Your first two years of service hone you through indoctrination, training, and preparation to be at the baseline of service. Unfortunately, there isn’t a similar, systemic process the military takes you through to get ready for life on the outside.

You’re within a year before or after transitioning out of the military; you face a precipice of not being as clear about life on the outside as you were about life inside. You’ve been through the TAPS, you have anecdotal stories about life after the military. But you miss clarity about what you want to do, where you want to live, how you foster a massively different group of friends, or your new role in the family.

Similar to Steven Pressfield’s Turning Pro, Command Your Transition clarifies the challenge about being professional through your transition, so life on the outside becomes better than anything you experienced in uniform. This book will help you:

  • Define what career you want to pursue when you get out
  • Choose how you will continue to serve others after the military
  • Live your life, on your own terms, without regret or guilt
  • Uncover your own intent or mission statement for the legacy you want to create
  • Accelerate your transition, with the sparse time you currently have
