Many veterans who are returning from war have trouble finding a job. Often, it takes them some time to adjust to being home. They are not ready to find a job as soon as they return home. Then, they have trouble finding one due to the economy. This leads many veterans looking for ways to make some money to support themselves and their families. Many try to start their own businesses and they are having a lot of success with it.

Here are some reasons that veterans make good entrepreneurs.

  • The military teaches men (and women) to be disciplined. They know how to work hard and get things done. They will apply the same to their businesses.
  • In war, veterans have to be ready to react to anything that can happen. They are prepared to react to any problems that will occur in their business.
  • Veterans are also used to days that are not routine. Many business owners do not have schedules like people who work regular nine to five jobs.
  • Veterans have to be quick thinkers in war, just like business owners.
  • They know what they can handle so they will not stress over the little problems that arise in their business.
  • Veterans know how hard it is to come back from war. Many veterans devote their life (and their businesses) to helping other veterans.

Veterans make good entrepreneurs. War prepares them for business. They have to be quick on their feet and ready for anything. This will help them keep their business going strong. They will not stress out over problems in their business because they know that they can handle it.
