Journey To Entrepreneurship

I told some friends, I told some family, and I thought I would tell them and they would support me….People were telling me all the reasons I couldn’t do it (entrepreneurship)…I realized I was probably asking the wrong people those questions
The one clear, unfair advantage that veterans have over just about any other group out there is that network….I actually have not met a veteran yet who will not answer an email or a call
