As a veteran, many of the skills you learned in the military can be especially helpful in running a business. The wide range of hard and soft skills you acquired through service can be transferred with great success to the private sector. Many veterans are doing just that.
According to the United States Small Business Association (SBA), 2 1/2 million businesses
are run by veterans. Nearly one in 10 U.S. businesses are veteran-owned. They cover the entire range of business types: from professional and technical services to consulting, construction, consumer products, and more.
Here are some steps to start your business:
Step One: Coming Up With Your Business Idea
Step Two: Developing Your Business Plan
Step Three: Registering Your Business
