Four Reasons We Military Makes Good Entrepreneurs!
For you military veterans as well as active personnel – if you are considering a new career in business, there are lots of things that you will need to take into account: from funding your new venture – to finding staff, to deciding on the best location to launch – these three points are just the tip of the iceberg.
I believe that all military veterans have many skills that are transferable from an army career into the world of industry. These skills are essential if you want to be a successful entrepreneur.
Here are four of the biggest reasons military personnel make good entrepreneurs:
1. They can deal with stress and have the physical and mental stamina
When you have worked in the Military, you become accustomed to chaos and knowing how to deal with challenging and time-sensitive situations. My military background has given me a cool head and the ability to handle difficult situations with ease.
2. The Military teaches problem solving skills
As well as handling stress, entrepreneurs should also know how to solve problems and overcome them. Military staff become natural problem solvers because of their past experiences.
Army veterans can look at the bigger picture and use creative thinking to find solutions to problems and challenges.
Military training provides mend and women with an aggressive attitude and a willingness to do whatever it takes to accomplish a mission or a goal with minimum personnel and resources. A military veteran has a “can do” attitude and a mindset to see the mission trough.
3. The Military knows how to build relationships and liaisons
Another reason why so many military veterans make a success of entrepreneurship is that they can build relationships like no-one else do to their experience and training.
Whether you were on the front line or working in military offices, you know that there’s a special bond among veterans and that we can talk to anyone.
Communication skills are critical in entrepreneurship, as you have to be on the ball and ready to make new relationships with potential buyers and customers.
4. Military staff are dedicated, loyal team players
Finally, I must mention dedication. When you are working in the Military, your job is much more than a job — it becomes your way of life.
Men and women who who enter into the Military do not do so because they want to make millions. They do it because they want to be part of something bigger and better. They want to make a real difference.
The very best business owners are not fixated on money; but they want to build or create something, and solve problems in ways that other people can not do. Entrepreneurs have the same values and attitudes.
If you can apply your dedication and passion for a new industry, you will find purpose, freedom, and the ability to build a business that you love.
Making the change from a veteran to an online digital marketer and entrepreneur is hard work but it’s better than trading your time for cash.
It takes a new mindset that goes with your inner values.
You need to be transformed from being a worker to an entrepreneur.
