  1. Veterans have a lot of money and time so they make perfect entrepreneurs. It is about finding that niche that they find interesting.

  2. Plenty of opportunities for veterans for they always have the seed money to work in just about any type of business.

  3. Money doesn’t guarantee success in business but it means you have plenty to work with and you get to fail faster. This will allow you to know the right thing to do next time.
