Chris Osman

Marine, Navy SEAL, Founder of Rhuged

Chris Osman has a myriad of incredible personal experiences to share in this week’s TNQ Podcast. He is a former Marine and a former Navy SEAL who participated in numerous classified operations, a husband and parent. He has experienced everything from incarceration in a Haitian jail to dealing with a rare, life-threatening disease affecting his wife. He is an author (SEALs, The U.S. Navy’s Elite Fighting Force) and has owned TAG (Tactical Assault Gear) and currently owns and operates Rhuged, a direct-to-consumer ammunitions distributor. Listen as Chris shares some of his “Never Quit” stories.

In this episode you will hear:

  • I learned as I failed.
  • I couldn’t shake the desire to be specialized. I wanted to be tested to see if I could even do it.
  • The most isolated and depressed I’ve ever felt was being in a Haitian jail. I had zero control – there’s nothing we could do. Bare-footed with a shirt & pants, and that’s it.
  • My headspace was in survival mode.
  • I had never been so terrified. When I finally got on that plane with my passport on a commercial airline to Miami, tears were streaming down my eyes.
  • One day my wife started slurring her speech, and we learned she had contracted Myasthenia Gravis, an auto-immune disease that affects the immune system from the shoulders up.
  • One night while in the hospital, she was looking at me, and her eyes rolled back into her head. I quickly assembled the bag mask and called for help. I’ve never been through anything like that. It was a never quit moment.
  • You push forward by being the positive light in someone else’s miserable experience.
  • You gotta be a rock for your people.
  • You can’t bail on people when it gets to be the hardest part of their life.
  • It doesn’t matter how much money you’ve got, you can’t be a Navy SEAL. You gotta put the work in.
  • No matter how much someone would pay me, I’d never put myself back in a position to work for someone else.
  • My goal in life is to never work for somebody else.
