Transition Advice
 
 

Want to be Your Own Boss?

Should you consider working for yourself as you transition from the military? Many of the skills and qualities you honed during your military service, such as drive, patience, perseverance, sacrifice, problem solving, and handling adversity, are well-suited for entrepreneurship.

According to a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) report, approximately 2.5 million businesses were majority-owned by veterans. That makes up 9.1 percent of all U.S. businesses. These veteran business-owners are continuing to serve their country by employing over 5 million people collectively.

The SBA report also cited that out of these U.S. veteran-owned firms, 2.1 percent, or 32,000, are veteran-owned franchises. Owning a franchise is a way to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself, as the franchise has the procedures already in place and provides support to franchisees.

Many resources are offered by government agencies and non-profits to assist veterans in establishing their own business or acquiring a franchise. Check out a list of these resources here: Resources to Check Out Before Starting Your Own Business. Leveraging this assistance can increase your probability of success.
