I created the Command Your Business Podcast to focus on Military Veterans who have become or want to become Entrepreneurs. More than 2.4 million U.S. businesses are owned by Veterans, about nine percent of all American firms. They employ 5.8 million employees and have $210 billion in annual payroll. My focus is on the Veterans who want to create jobs and grow our economy.
I spent 4 years in the Army ROTC program at the University of Tennessee, graduated as a Distinguished Military Graduate, and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. I spent the next four and a half years serving as a Tank Platoon Leader, Tank Company Executive Officer, Battalion Maintenance Officer, and Assistant Operations Officer. Since leaving the Army in 1999 as a Captain, I have worked with Global and Fortune 500 companies in a variety of roles to include Six Sigma Master Black Belt, Plant Manager, and Marketing Manager.
In my military and civilian career I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing leaders. The group of Officers and Non-Commissioned Officers I served with taught me lessons that I will never forget. I find myself using the tools and skills I learned as an Officer on a daily basis. There are thousands of people who have served in the Military who have gone on to start or lead successful businesses. I think that everyone can learn from their journey even if they never spent a day in the military, and that is the reason for starting this podcast.
Are you a veteran? Is there something I can do to help you? Do you know someone who should be a guest on The Command Your Business Podcast? Want to partner with me?
