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 the U.S. Census Bureau, over 337,000 businesses are majority-owned by veterans. That makes up 5.9 percent of all U.S. businesses. These veteran business-owners are continuing to serve their country by employing approximately 3.9 million people with about $177.7 billion in annual payroll.

These businesses include veteran-owned franchises as well. 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. Leveraging this assistance can increase your probability of success.

Also use LinkedIn to connect with people who own a business or franchise that is similar to what you are considering. Ask for their opinions and insights into the business.

If you think owning your own business is right for you, be sure to use the many resources available to veterans. The hard work, dedication, and numerous other skills you exhibited in the military will serve you well in turning your entrepreneurial dream into a successful veteran-owned business.
