I created this site to help veterans build their own online home businesses the right way.
Glen Palo here. I am just an old internet marketing hack. I have been doing this internet marketing thingy since 1996.
I have great wife, 5 kids and 9 grandkids. I am a brother, uncle, father, grandfather, husband, veteran, golfer, and work-at-home entrepreneur among other things. I am a Christian, world traveler, internet marketer, mentor and friend to mention a few other things.
My Navy career started in 1971. I went to boot camp in San Diego at the Recruit Training Center. My first tour of duty was at the Navy Fleet Intelligence Center, Pacific. Nearing the end of my enlistment, the FICPAC career counselor convinced me to apply for Office Candidate School at Newport, Rhode Island. I received a commission as an Ensign in the Navy Supply Corps. I retired in 1991 during Desert Storm.
Like many military people retiring after 20 years of service, retirement pay does not get the bills paid. Especially in my case trying to raise 5 children. Besides getting a job, I also wanted to work for myself, be my own boss.
My mom was my inspiration. Because her career was stymied by the corporate “glass ceiling” and probably age discrimination, she wanted to start her own business. With my dad’s encouragement, she started a general construction company with one of her business associates. My mom was 64 years old at the time and the country was in the middle of the 1974 recession. I still remember the times I woke up to find my mom working on construction drawings and blueprints spread all over the dining room table.
I started my small business in 1996 providing tax preparation services to individuals and small companies. A number of my tax clients were small business owners operating out of their homes. I researched creating other sources of income, particularly on the internet since these businesses could be operated from home.
Major surgery put me out of business in 2006. It took quite awhile regain my full strength and stamina. But I am back! Starting over was not so bad. I loved the fun and challenge. But here is the best part, it is not hard. It’s simple when you have a plan!
I want to help other veterans create their own home businesses. Create a life-changing income using the “take-charge” attitudes developed in their military service. As General Colin Powell said, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
My objective is to help you create your own business and work from home like I do.
