Rick Yost is the Co-Founder of VeteransList.us. The company’s mission is to help connect people to veteran owned companies.
Rick attended the University of South Dakota, and participated in ROTC. After graduation, he was commissioned as an Officer in the United States Army. He attended Ranger School, and served as a tank platoon leader with the 3rd Armored Calvary Regiment during Operation Desert Storm.
Rick had this to say about getting started as an entrepreneur:
I knew I wanted to start something myself. I wasn’t sure what, so I went and filed an LLC. I didn’t have a product, didn’t really have a service that was well defined. But I started an LLC. That action, in the coming six months after I did that, I was amazed at the opportunities that presented themselves to me…. if you put yourself in the right mindset, then you make yourself open to opportunities that you may have passed over before.
VeteransList was launched on a Kickstarter campaign, and will soon launch with one of the largest databases of known Veteran Owned Businesses.
