Franchising And Veterans; A Good Fit?


(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy).

On Veteran’s Day, I was asked to join two rather energetic and engaging women on their weekly small business radio program, to discuss how military veterans fit into the scheme of things with regards to franchise ownership.

I’m from this school of thought;

Military veterans can be great franchise owners. It’s just that we don’t live in a perfect world, and some people, veterans or not, just shouldn’t be small business/franchise owners at all. No way. no how. (For lots of reasons)

Now back to the ladies from Boost Your Business Radio. Who are they?

Rieva Lesonsky owns GrowBiz Media
She was the Editorial Director of Entrepreneur Magazine for 25 years, where she helped millions of Americans launch their own businesses.
