When you have prepared for combat, you are more
than prepared to take on the business battlefield.
Huffington Post conducted an interview with Kevin O’Leary “Mr. Wonderful” on Why Military Veterans Making Great Entrepreneurs. Our very own Eli Crane was at the center of this interview, taking the lead into the three things entrepreneurs can learn from being a part of military service.
1) The importance of team building
2) How to focus on mission planning
3) Developing your skills as a leader
Kevin O’Leary, who has invested in a number of veteran-owned
businesses, says that military training emphasizes many of the same traits that
make great entrepreneurs. “Specifically, military veterans have the three
Ds: desire, drive and determination”, says O’Leary, who likens business to
being — in its own way — a battlefield. “In my experience,” he
says, “entrepreneurs who are in the military or have been in the past are
able to problem solve their way through the business battle field with much
more ease than most.”
