Change Your Life: Start A Business

Being business owner is a lot of fun. It gives you an income and a freedom that no job will ever provide, and the fulling satisfaction of employing others. But it takes a serious commitment to succeed and hard work.

One of the great benefits of owning a business is that you can sell it. It has equity. Every new account or client you acquire makes your company more valuable. I was able to build-up and to sell my businesses several times. I took vacations, spent quality time with my family, surfed a lot, lived in gorgeous homes and owned multiple vehicles. I also employed dozens of people, and was responsible for them supporting their families. -- It is very difficult to achieve this lifestyle as an employee. But it is available in America for anyone with the imagination, confidence and drive to succeed.


My name is Mark Baird. I have created a program that helps Americans to start their own businesses. It is a program of the 501c3 non-profit, Patriotic Hearts.

First we find out if you are a right match for the business start-ups we have available. -- The start-up costs for beginning a business usually include equipment, insurance, licenses, website, marketing materials, and often the lease of a building or office. However, it is possible to begin profitable businesses for very little, if you run it out of your home or garage.

Our Entrepreneur program provides you with all the equipment you need to get started; a multi-page website; graphics for business cards and letter heads; bidding documents and agreements; your sales pitch, marketing materials; and training on how to use the social networks, TV, radio, the press and public speaking to spread the news and get new clients.  – We teach you how to start making good money right away, and how to build a business that employs dozens of others.  

We can advise you on getting any kind of business going; but, here are the businesses that we are true experts at making successful quickly:

Commercial Office Cleaning & Residential Property Maintenance / Carpet Cleaning/ Window Cleaning / Floor Maintenance/ Painting

We have a simple, step-by-step plan for you to follow. It worked for me. It has worked for hundreds of others. It will work for you.

If you have the desire to become a business owner, let me know. We can set up a time to talk and find the right plan for you.

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.
