Former Army Ranger uses his experience and his Total Warrior Model to help businesses gain a cognitive edge over their competitors.
Jason Van Camp had a choice to make. “Die in place, weather out the storm and hope things return to normal, or do something about it – innovate, change, adapt, improvise, and overcome,” he explained on the most recent podcast episode of Talent Magnet.
Talent Magnet is a podcast produced by the Thurston County Chamber in partnership with Pacific Mountain Workforce Council.

In episode 245 released on September 8, Talent Magnet kicked off the new format with an interview with former Army Ranger and Deliberate Discomfort author Jason Van Camp. His company Mission Six Zero and his Total Warrior Model is based on his military experience and scientific research on performance and team building. His clients include NFL teams such as the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.
The Total Warrior Model uses testing to determine if someone had what was needed to be in special forces. The Total Warrior Model uses that criteria and applies it to a “whole person” model. Six criteria – mental, physical, spiritual, social, emotional, professional – are used to evaluate clients. His model helps clients with camaraderie and team building. Jason’s non-profit Warrior Rising assists veterans in starting their own businesses, building upon their entrepreneurial spirit and providing a supported pathway to the right resources and mentors to launch their business.
