To catalyze the entrepreneurial potential of military experience to lead the American economy.
Pretty audacious. And damned important.
In this episode of Radio Free Enterprise, Ray Crowell, Director of Bunker Labs DC talks about vetrepreneurship and the role Bunker Labs plays in helping not only veterans but also active-duty military personnel and their spouses, transition from a career in the armed forces to successful business ownership.
Every American feels a deep debt of gratitude to the brave men and women in our Armed Services and we’d all like to repay them any way we can.
A wonderful way to do just that is by patronizing businesses founded and run by military veterans. But how can we find them?
In this interview Rick Yost, CEO of VeteransList.us, explains how you can use his search engine to locate veteran-owned businesses in your community and also explains why you can expect a better experience when dealing with vetrepreneurs.
And, if you are a veteran business owner yourself – or a veteran considering starting a business – Rick describes the advantages you hold and special challenges you face.
Rick wraps up by explaining all the benefits veteran business owners receive by registering their companies for free with VeteransList.

In this episode, Dave explains how he originally got involved in network marketing and how he has built a successful business with over 14,000 team members, all while staying true to himself and never being pushy.

How did Groupon grow so quickly from an idea on a napkin to a publicly-traded $13 billion company with 10,000 employees?
By capitalizing on the widespread fear and ignorance of Marketing exhibited by thousands of business owners across this country.
Please spend a few minutes with me to consider The Groupon Conundrum and how it may apply to you and your company.
