My name is Mark Baird. I am the founder of HirePatriots.com. I write about everything that helps US veterans, the organizations that support them, and US small businesses.
How to Be a US Veteran Business Owner
Are you a US veteran? Do you want to own a very profitable business that employs other US veterans? Our non-profit, Patriotic Hearts, will provide you with your own US Military Maintenance company
Our purpose in putting you into business is 3 fold: One: It gives a US veteran a solid, profitable business by which he can support himself and his family comfortably. Two: It creates a business that employs other US veterans and pays them well. Three: It provides a monthly source of donations to Patriotic Hearts, our US veteran non-profit.
I have built several successful commercial maintenance businesses since 1970. Now, I am helping US veterans: I am showing them how to do it too. It is a very lucrative business. For instance, I have had many 20,000 sq. ft. office cleaning accounts for $5000 a month. After paying $15 an hour or $900 a month to have them cleaned 3 hours a night, I was able to keep the rest as pure profit.
I provide everything you need from equipment, website, business plan, marketing plan, scripts, agreements, bid sheets, business cards, etc. Then we use my book: The Patriotic Business Plan: Strategies for Sensational Success to get accounts. I will mentor you every step of the way, and so will other USMM veteran business owners.
You can work this business yourself, at first; or, you can hire employees from the start. But your business will grow quickly and soon you will not be able to do any cleaning. You will be in business appointments getting new accounts and hiring new employees.
My marketing method also opens a lot of doors for you to speak on TV, radio, in the press and at conventions, clubs, and associations. It will bring you hundreds of thousands of dollars of great, free, media attention, and new accounts.
To get started, I ask for you to have some skin in the game. I only have time to work with veterans that are serious about owning their own company. $2500 helps Patriotic Hearts pay for your equipment, website and marketing materials.
If you are still interested, give me a call and let's get started.
