Robert Graves’ first job out of the Marine Corps was a “couch bum.” He hadn’t prepared well for his transition and found himself sleeping on a friend’s couch after he got out. Going from “hero to zero” was tough. But he persevered. “I finally landed my first real civilian job four months later doing exactly what I told myself I would never do again … building and installing radars,” he says.

Not On His Radar. Graves fixed and maintained radars for 10 years as a Marine. He was good at it, and the civilian job doing the same thing paid well. Yet he missed helping people. So he completed his bachelor’s degree in psychology, got certified in hypnotherapy and opened his own practice.

All About Helping.
Today Graves is a life coach and hypnotherapist in Los Angeles, helping clients with behavior modification and peak performance. “I help people get their life back on track. I help veterans transition. I help people find confidence in themselves they’d thought never existed.”

How to Grow a Beard. His desire to help inspired Graves to write a book that tells his own transition story and offers help in adjusting to civilian life. Self-published in 2016, “How to Grow a Beard: A Military Transition Guide Back Into Civilian Life” grew from the many veterans who asked for his advice. If he didn’t have the answer, he knew how to find it. “Generations of veterans have walked this same path of transition, and there is no need to quit. There is no need for clinical depression due to the new nature of the outside world. There is no need for solitude and suicide because we’ve all experienced the same frustrations — but some of us were able to get the answers,” he says. “I hope that this book changes peoples’ lives.”[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
