Seda Goff, Director of Veteran Entrepreneurs at PenFed Credit Union and Suzie Mills, an Air Force veteran and owner of Honest Soul Yoga are committed to helping veterans follow their dreams of starting their own businesses.
A fun historical fact that at the end of World War II, nearly 50 percent of returning veterans started their own businesses. Juxtapose that with the meager 4.5 percent now? What changed?
Well, a big problem for many vets is gaining access to the funds necessary to start their own businesses. That’s where PenFed Credit Union can help. The Veteran Entrepreneur Investment Program (VEIP) is designed to help vets make their entrepreneurial goals realities.
Seda Goff Michelle Tompkins for The Hollywood Digest about how to get veterans on the right path to starting their own businesses and what PenFed Credit Union is doing to help. Suzie Mills joined in the conversation as she is not only an Air Force vet, but also is the owner of a successful business and she encourages others to do the same.
