Fall Flying in the Blue Ridge Mountains by Tyson Rhame

Tyson Rhame Flying

With the fall season right around the corner, Tyson Rhame thought he would share one of his favorite fall flying videos filmed in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Perfect temperatures and calm predictable weather after a frontal passage make for perfect flying weather.  Tyson Rhame has been flying in and around the Blue Ridge Mountains for many years and definitely knows where to go to find the best views and most entertaining flight routes.  For all his film work, Ty uses the Drift Innovation cameras attached to his Extra 330LT aircraft using self fabricated mounts.  After years of experimentation, Ty has managed to create an aircraft camera mount for his aircraft that is stable, streamline, secure, and dampens vibration effectively.

Ty has been flying since 1984.  He originally started flying and teaching flying in glider aircraft at the United States Air Force Academy.  Following the Air Force Academy, Ty attended Air Force Undergraduate Pilot Training(UPT) at Reese AFB in Lubbock, Texas where he flew T-37 and T-38 aircraft.  Upon graduating from UPT, Ty was immediately back as a First Assignment Instructor Pilot (FAIP) and taught new air force pilots until 1994.  Following his FAIP assignment, Ty was assigned to the C-130 aircraft and flew on active duty and in the Georgia Air National Guard until 2005.  Ty transitioned to the Air Force Reserves in 2005 and eventually retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2014 with over 30 years of military service.   In addition to flying thousands of hours all over the world, Ty flew over 200 combat missions and combat support missions while in the Air Force totaling over 230 hours of combat time.  Tyson Rhame was awarded numerous Air Medals, Aerial Achievement Medals, Commendation Medals, and 3 Meritorious Service Medals for his service in the United States Air Force.  Ty was hired by a major airline in 1999 and flew large commercial jets until he took an early retirement in late 2015.  Ty now flies privately and enjoys sharing his flying experiences through his videos.  Ty’s primary aircraft for enjoyment is a 2 seat Extra 330LT in which he often takes passengers flying.  “I love nothing more than sharing with others the thrill and freedom I feel every time I fly—Ty Rhame” If you are lucky, you may see Ty’s plane at your local airfield when he is looking for someone to fill his front seat.

Avoid doing it all – By Ty Rhame

Very few successful entrepreneurs can do it all themselves. An important part of being a great business leader is learning to share the load in the most effective way. This is why you hire competent and useful people. You won’t be able to do everything required to create a successful business yourself; you will have to bring in others. Who you select to help you run your business will go a long way in determining how successful it will be. One of the most important tasks for any entrepreneur to master is the art of hiring the right professionals for the job. You simply cannot afford to lose time, money and results by hiring the wrong people.

Top 7 Reasons for Becoming an Entrepreneur

Many people say that they want to become an entrepreneur, but they don’t really know why. Here are my top 7 reasons why someone should become an entrepreneur.

You gain autonomy: Running your own company/business allows you to take full charge of your life, including how you use your time.

Opportunities: Entrepreneurship opens you up to a new world of opportunities. There is no limit to the number of businesses you can create.

Responsibility: You can make a contribution to society because the decision is all your.
Be your own boss: No one likes to be told what to do. When you own your own business, you can choose your own path.

More family time: When you control your own time, you can choose how you allocate it and have more time with family.

Opportunity to create a legacy: If you are one of those people who want to be remembered for the contributions you made in life, entrepreneurship is the way to go

Control: Although succeeding as an entrepreneur takes more hard work and sacrifice, you have a better sense of security because you control your finances.

Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Own Your Own Business

There are many reasons why you might want to be a business owner as opposed to being an employee.  Here are five of my favorite reasons about why owning a business is a great thing to do.

1. You can pursue your passion

Nothing is more fulfilling in life than pursuing your passion. When you wake up every day and do what you like, you don’t feel like you’re working. This makes life very fulfilling. No one has to push you around to work. Also, everything tends to fall in place when you pursue that which you were born to do i.e. your passion. There is in fact no better reason to start your own business other than to pursue your passion/dreams.

2. You take full control of your destiny

It is also fulfilling to be able to take control of your own life and make your own decisions. Working for someone else denies you this opportunity. When you own your own business, you don’t have to get buy-in from anyone. You can determine anything about your business from the culture to goals and strategies steering you company to whatever direction you see fit. Although running your own business can be a daunting task even when you delegate, you get the thrill of having full control.

3. You can choose who you work with

Employees rarely have the opportunity to choose their workmates unless they are in senior management positions. Considering that companies thrive because of teamwork, being able to choose who you work with is enough to motivate anyone to own their own business. If you dream of working with positive people who genuinely care about their work and share the same passion as you, you are better off starting your own business.

4. You can reap the full benefits of your efforts

Many employees are dissatisfied with their jobs because they feel like they are marginalized. The best way to make sure you get rewarded for your efforts is to start your own business. In most organizational settings, the employees who work the hardest aren’t the ones who get paid the most. If you want more for your efforts, you should consider owning your own business.

5. You get unmatched fulfillment

Although it is possible to be fulfilled as an employee, it is impossible to get the same sense of pride you get when you build something on our own. Succeeding through your own abilities, ideas, efforts and leadership brings you a sense of fulfillment that can’t be achieved any other way. If you believe that most people want to live a fulfilling life, owning a business can be one way to achieve that goal.
