Veteran business owners and military spouse business owners need mentors who can give them great advice. Thankfully, books can be those mentors that help drive their mission forward. Here are five we heartily recommend:
1) Rise: The Veteran’s Field Manual for Staring Your Own Business & Conquering the Online Economy by Wes O’Donnell
What it’s about:
Military veteran and entrepreneur Wes O’Donnell provides step by step instructions for veterans looking to start their own business. The book is full of tips and detailed, real world examples—and an awesome appendix filled with veteran-specific business resources.
Why we love it:
We believe veterans make natural entrepreneurs and are an invaluable asset to any business. We love O’Donnell’s honesty as he shares events from his experience—including embarrassing mistakes he made in his own business.
