New Strategy to Create US Veteran Business Owners
For those of you interested in owning their own US Military Maintenance company, here is some additional information that might help you get started and then some links to profiles of a few USMM owners.
We provide you with all the equipment that you need to start your business. We provide you with a customized US Military Maintenance website. We train and certify you. We teach you how to get accounts, and show you how to get your business on the first page of the search engines. We provide marketing materials, scripts, agreements, bid sheets, biz cards, advertising, and one on one mentoring. We even get you on TV, radio, in the Press and get you speaking gigs at business meetings.
We do everything we can to make you successful. If you follow our directions, you will be. But of course, the key to any business success is to provide a better service than your competitors. You all know what “Inspection ready” means. Require and maintain that same excellence in your business. Always dress, act, speak and perform like a true professional. Manage your team of veteran employees with respect, pay them well and always on time. And let them know that as your business grows there will be greater opportunity for those whose good work makes that happen.
Companies across America are eager to hire US veterans. Several major ones have already contacted us and have set terms for us acquiring their office and facility maintenance contracts. They believe in our mission: To create 1000 US Military Maintenance businesses and to employ 100,000 US veterans.
Being a US veteran business owner whose mission is to employ other US veterans and to pay them a good wage is a cause that will make many business owners want to partner with you. We have developed a business plan that uses this grand cause to bring you clients.
Our USMM owners are finding success in large cities and in rural regions. Our goal for each USMM veteran is to earn $250,000 in your first 12 to 18 months. Several USMM owners have done so. (Now, they are on their way to earning $1M in their second year.) You can too. Follow in the footsteps of successful USMM veterans who are walking Point for you. They are all willing to help you along.
