What Veterans have taught me about business

To those who have served and are serving our nation, thank you! You are the reason that I am able to write this blog without a care in the world of what I say. In recent years, I have done a lot of research on the military and what it takes to serve our country. The courage, dedication, and skills that it takes is absolutely insane. Watching American Sniper and the story of Chris Kyle, helped me realize just what it costs to be a soldier in the USA military or in any country for that matter.

One branch of the military that I have always been fascinated with is the Marines. The training that they go through to become an elite group of men and women is a league above any other. Then some of course step it up another notch and become a Navy Seal. I encourage you to research and find videos on what happens throughout their training and what they go through in combat. No matter what branch they are in, they all train towards the same thought in mind, going to war.

The hell that soldiers are put through when they are deployed is hard to put in words. However, there is something to be learned from seeing what they go through. If they can go through that kind of hell, then surely, I can be a better person, face my fears, and live a meaningful life. With this mind set, the excuses that are holding you back from becoming a successful entrepreneur, will suddenly diminish. The amount of work that a soldier is expected to put in for a meager pay is insane but, he does it without thinking twice. So, why can’t you simply get off of the couch and do what you have always wanted to do. There will always be hard work involved with being an entrepreneur but, it is miniscule compared to watching your six in a country that your hated in.

So, stop holding yourself back with all the excuses of why you can’t start a business or why you don’t have time. The time is now!
