Become A Business Owner / Employer

Here is how you can become a business owner, employ US veterans, and start making money this week. It is an effort of Patriotic Hearts, an award winning charity that assists US military and veterans. Our primary focus is creating programs that employ US veterans.

We have created a special program, US Military Maintenance. This is a business-in-a-box that has already proven to be successful in getting US veterans and their supporters started in business. Our first two USMM owners to reach their one-year mark, a couple of months ago, each earned in excess of $250K. We have over a dozen USMM business across the country, so far.

My name is Mark Baird. I have been assisting US military and veterans since 1970, during the Vietnam War. At that time, we were losing 600 US servicemen every week. It was horrible! I was a pastor of a church that served college students. I encountered many US veterans that had survived that war physically, but who were torn up inside because of the trauma of war. My heart went out to them, and I have been honoring such veteran’s sacrifices and service since then.

At first, in response, I began a building a maintenance business that employed local active duty and transitioned US servicemen. They cleaned offices in the evenings; or did repairs, painting, and cleaning of residential managed properties during the day.  They enjoyed the work, and being with other veterans. They were also outstanding employees that did their best to help me expand my business by providing “inspection ready” service to my clients. They made me wealthy enough to fund my own non-profit!

I began a 501c3 that has helped tens of thousands of US military, veterans, and their families in a variety of ways. A little more than a year ago, I added this program to create successful veteran owned businesses that will employ other US veterans and pay them a livable wage. (You can read and listen to interviews with some of my USMM owners in my LinkedIn blog posts, on and on Friends of Veterans Radio.)

The mission of US Military Maintenance has already attracted the attention of several major corporations with thousands of offices and properties across America. They are eager to have our USMM veterans to service them. They just need us to grow and to service more locations. These are multi-million dollars a year contracts that have been offered to us IF we can find more US veteran business owners.

I have built and sold building maintenance businesses for 4 decades. I know everything that you need to know to get going immediately. I provide your equipment, website, training, certifications, and teach you how to start earning money right away, and then to grow into a multi-million a year business. I have written an awarding winning business plan for you to follow. If you do not mind being on TV, radio, in the Press and speaking to crowds of people, then you will benefit by making your USMM business famous.

The mutual goal of our veteran business owners is for our combined USMM businesses to be employing 100,000 US veterans in the next ten years. (With your participation we can get there sooner.)

The US veterans on our team that are active duty, reserved, recently transitioned, older veterans, successful business owners, PhDs., grunts and officers, from every branch in the US Military. We are a team that helps eachother. They are all extraordinary and exceptional. Working with them as they grow to more and more success has been the most rewarding and confirming experience of my life!

Do you want to talk to me about being a US Military Maintenance owner? Please contact me. Let’s set up a time for us to talk. (It seems that only amazing people respond to this inquiry, at least, so far.)

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a website for their location. We also hold welcome home parties, military marriage retreats, job fairs and create military family gardens.
