189: Army Veteran Ricoh Danielson
Ricoh Danielson is a US Army veteran of OIF and a multi-rotational operator of Iraq, Afghan and Haiti. He is a commissioner for veteran commission in Phoenix and former city commissioner of Scottsdale. Ricoh is a small business owner and silent actor for many small businesses.

“If you put checks and balances in your systems, then you will be ahead of your game as well.” – Ricoh Danielson on scaling a business.
Transition from the Army
Ricoh retired from the army in 2008 and became a security operator for different organizations. His newfound work gave him the experience of working with a lot of Marines in Afghanistan.

His transition was tough. During such time, he went through divorce and homelessness. Among the biggest challenges he faced was finding his life’s purpose.

At one point he had worked 28 different jobs. It was not soon when he realized he could be an entrepreneur like other members of their family.

Pursuing Success as Entrepreneur
Ricoh did not allow challenges to defeat him. He picked himself up and decided that it was enough.

“Believe in your product and service because you are not just going to sell to anyone; you will be helping people who have that need.” – Ricoh Danielson

Not long, he successfully graduated from law school and started his own digital forensics firm. He also got an MBA and another Master’s degree in UCLA.
Into Digital Forensics
Ricoh first came across digital forensics in Iraq. They went into a raid one time and found some computers and burner phones left behind. He learned how to extract data from them.

When he went into law school he saw the same thing. By and by, it inspired him to get into business. He worked his way up the ladder to the success he has now.
