John Guarnieri | Secret Service to Shinedown

That first step from a “stable” platform, such as a secure job, into the unknown, is absolutely tough.  The step is never easy.  In fact, it can downright shake your foundation.

I recently had a discussion with John Guarnieri.  John left the Secret Service for a career protecting some of the top bands in the world, from Motley Crue to Shinedown.  John told me about how it felt to leave a secure position with the Secret Service, one that he had for years, and jumping into the world of tour security. Not just small venue security either. John jumped headfirst into some of the biggest venues out there, working behind the scenes to protect such bands as Motley Crue, Nickelback, and Shinedown.

Everyone fears that first step, everyone.
