Celebrating Veterans

Being a part of the armed forces is no easy task, and assimilating to home life can be even more challenging. We believe that the skills and strengths acquired from training were not only beneficial on the field, but off the field as well. In honor of Memorial Day and encouraging new beginnings to the men who fought, we wanted to share some business ventures that would complement the disciplines and cross-transferable skills they’ve worked so hard to master.

Off Road Tours:
Startup Costs: $50,000 – $100,000
If you’re looking for the more adventurous route, off road tours have become popular in the tourist areas. If you don’t know where to start, some companies offer franchise opportunities to help you get to where you need to be. Depending on your schedule, this can be a part time position.

Disaster Planning:
Startup Costs: $10,000 – $50,000
Being prepared for the inevitable natural disasters can save lives, and if you’ve trained in disaster relief efforts, you would flourish in this venture. There’s two avenues that you can pursue with this business, both of which generate income: Offering disaster planning services, or sell disaster related products. This can be operated from home, with part time opportunities. An additional benefit to this industry is that your marketing efforts would go noticed because natural disasters get a lot of media coverage.

Residential Security Consultant:
Startup Costs: $2,000 – $10,000
This position can be operated from home with franchise opportunities available. In this field, you would spend time with a family and define their security objectives. You then tailor a security system to their needs. This is great for those of you with security or law enforcement backgrounds.

Special Events Security:
Startup Costs: $2,000 – $10,000
There are thousands of events all throughout the U.S. happening, which presents the opportunity to utilize your security skills. This is another industry that would be great for veterans with experience in security or law enforcement. Another profitable opportunity in the field can be earned by becoming a security instructor to those looking to learn security techniques.

If you’re wanting a website to showcase your services, there are plenty of user friendly resources that give you a step by step tutorial to a successful website. Some that we love are GoDaddy.com and WordPress. Whatever venture you decide to take on, we have complete confidence in you! We hope everyone has a great Memorial Weekend.
