Andrew O’Brien - Helping Veterans Become Successful Entrepreneurs (AoL 113)

January 4, 2018

Show Notes: Let's face it. The world can eat you up and spit you out if you let it. And the number one way that this happens is by not having a personal mission. Or simply not having something to fight for. Like anyone else, military veterans are susceptible to having a numb life after they retire from the armed forces. However, because they have had something to fight for they know what it means to have a mission - even though it didn't begin in their own head. This mission gives veterans a unique sense of comradeship. And when they retire - they lose all of the support they've become accustomed to. As we've been learning, entrepreneurship can be a way to not only develop a personal mission, but embrace it as well. And that being the case, veterans can make great entrepreneurs who support each other. In today's chat with Vetrepreneur Tribe founder, Andrew O'Brien, we learn how his life struggles have lead him to realize this and why he felt it was necessary to start the Tribe even though he had been having pretty good success with his PR company.
