Thank you for your service to your country!

And thank you for visiting Home Business for Veterans.

The purpose of Home Business for Veterans is to educate, train and help military veterans (and anyone else) learn how to create and operate a successful online home business.

There are many home business opportunities for veterans. Learn how to identify the good ones while avoiding the scams. We are not writing about the possibility of buying franchises.

There are many resources online about franchise opportunities. As we complete our research on financing including grants for veterans to start a business, we will add the information to our resources page. Read more about Home Business Basic Training.

We all are experienced with training. From basic training through advanced training, unit training, large scale training, joint training, international training and major exercises with coalition partners and allies. This site introduces you to home businesses, how to get started, setting goals, planning for success, internet marketing, avoiding scams and more.

Have you thought about starting your own internet-based home business?

This is something everyone has thought about at one time or another.

Starting a home businessParticularly, on days gone wrong. A bad day at work. Failure for promotion. Getting laid off with no back-up plan. Not having enough money to pay an unexpected bill. A desire to do something else. Just plain tired of your financial condition and are unhappy as a result.

Sounds bad doesn’t it?

There is good news!

Based on a 2012 study by the Small Business Administration, 52% of U.S. companies operate as home businesses. Many of today’s biggest brand names were established by stay-at-home moms – (Dorothy) Gerber, Mrs. (Debbi) Fields, and Julie Aigner-Clark (Baby Einstein), to name but a few. And don’t forget Apple or Amazon. Jeff Bezos founded Amazon.com in 1994 as an online bookstore and it was completely run out of his garage.

Starting an internet-based home business has never been easier for veterans or anyone for that matter.

Billions of people are online at any given time. Sharing information, researching for product information, shopping, socializing just to mention a few of the things people do online.

Imagine an internet store that never closes. People looking and shopping 24/7. Kevin Systrom, co-founder of Instagram, says, “If you’ve got an idea, start today. There’s no better time than now to get going.”

The really good news is your military skills will serve you well building a home business. I wrote an article on applying military skills shows you how they apply.

Patrick Bet-David, successful entrepreneur, lets results speak for themselves in this 90-second video.

Life of an entrepreneur

Do you have a vision of your future?

I know for many of us veterans during deployment, we dreamed of and talked about getting back to the real world. And we go through the struggle of finding work or a new challenge. Or being in a job that sucks or is wasting your talent.

I remember the challenges of supporting a family on my military income. Even with my wife working, it was a struggle getting to the next payday.

Saving for the future? Not a chance. That is why I chose to start a home business when the opportunity arose. It was to supplement my income so I could save for retirement. If you are not ready to start a home business, then finding ways to reduce your expenses can help.
