Great Biz Op 4 US Veterans
Many US veterans want to start their own business. They have learned how to be leaders and desire to implement what they have learned and what they can do. But leadership roles for most veterans in the corporate world are hard to find. Almost always you must start at the bottom of the ladder with rock bottom pay and work your way up. That takes time, often years. Also, it is often menial work far below your skill level. It’s frustrating and leaves you uninspired. You long for more responsibility, leadership and control. Starting your own business is always on your mind. But starting or buying a business or a franchise usually costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. It is out of most veterans’ pay scale. I understand.
My name is Mark Baird. I run a non-profit that has helped over 50,000 US veterans to find good jobs. I have also assisted over 200 veterans in starting or building their own businesses. I am also a best-selling business author. But before all of that, I was the owner of building maintenance businesses. I was very successful. Some of my accounts were the Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Re/Max Realty, to name a few. I had crews of US veterans working for me throughout my state. And my non-profit was started and has been able to keep going with the income I made by selling those accounts when I “retired.” Now, I have put together a simple but comprehensive plan for veterans to do what I did, start their own building maintenance business.
Building maintenance includes cleaning offices, windows, carpets, floors, machinery, parking lots and the grounds around offices. It also can include mechanical, electrical, plumbing, painting, repairs and security. It can also include homes. The potential for growth is greater than almost all other business ventures.
I have created a simple, step-by-step process to get US veterans that are interested in starting such a business. I will teach you every aspect of the business: What you need to get started. How to approach businesses. How to make bids. The equipment and supplies needed. How to clean. How to train crews. — How to be a successful and profitable business owner in just a few months or less. And I will show you how to turn your veteran status into a competitive edge.
The great thing about starting a building maintenance business is the cost. You can get started for just a few hundred dollars. That is how I got started too. Five years later, the business was almost running itself. I got a condo on the sand in Laguna Beach and spent more time surfing than working. It was a great life!
If you are US veteran that wants to own a business like this, write or call me. Let’s talk.
