Reviews for Conceal Reveal: The Space between Entrepreneurs and the Defense Industry

Author Julie Willis goes deep inside the current military/industrial logjam to find a simpler, more effective solution for modern warriors. This is an essential book to help unravel the complexities of a system gone awry. John J. Kelly, Detroit Free Press Julie's humble, outsider perspective on defense innovation is exactly what we need to keep the community honest. She calls it as she sees it, and blazes a trail for entrepreneurs to follow and connect. Graham Plaster, founder of the Intelligence Community Inc. Her company DEFIANT aims to bridge the gap between academics, entrepreneurs and the departments of defense to ensure the warfighters have the best and most up to date weaponry etc, hence the title. Susan Keefe, Midwest Book Review, 5 Stars In Conceal Reveal, rocket-propelled entrepreneur author Julie Willis reveals the flaws and corruption in that middle ground war zone between bureaucracy and the innovative tech companies capable of providing the modernization of the military to make warfighters effective and efficient. Her tumultuous journey, from discovery of the barricades to her forming her LLC - DEFIANT Communication - serving companies who serve the military, makes for an explosively entertaining call to action! DEFIANT may be the name of her LLC, but it also defines the exhilarating spirit of its founder! This diary shines a light on yet another role Big Money plays in the decisions affecting us all! Grady Harp, Amazon Hall of Fame Top 50 Reviewer, 5-Stars This book is about the birth of a company, about brave moves during chaotic times, about seizing opportunities, and about never losing sight of one's passion in the midst of change and challenges. This is a story about being a woman in a traditionally male-dominated space who sees a problem, senses a need, and bravely takes a different path. Willis is bold, blunt, direct in her assessment of the problems, ambitious in her plans to help, and willing to explain the issues with expert insight, humor, and a good dose of sarcasm. Conceal Reveal is both a defiant challenge to the current system and the intensely personal diary of a gutsy female entrepreneur who never gives up her mission to keep American troops alive. Jessica Tofino, Educator and Writer, 5-Stars Julie Willis gives the reader a multi-faceted view into the world of military modernization, and why it is not working for those who need it most! Brad Butler, Author of 'A World Flight Over Russia'
