Tulsa, OK – June 25, 2015 – The transition from military to civilian life can be difficult for some as they strive to create a way to financially provide for their families. According to the Small Business Administration, one in seven veterans are self-employed or are small business owners and 25% say they are interested in starting or buying their own business. Online education platforms like Digital Tutors, Lynda.com, and Thrive15.com, to name a few, are more prevalent today compared to ten years ago making learning affordable and easy. With Thrive15.com, veterans have access to world-class mentorship available for free with the 1 for 1 HandUp Movement.
The International Franchise Association (IFA) estimates that one out of every seven franchises in the U.S., more than 66,000 businesses total, is owned and operated by a veteran.
Franchising is a viable option for veterans looking to start a business that has built-in systems already in place. Online education platform, Thrive15.com, is the practical business training resource that many active duty reserve and former members of the military are turning to learn how to start and grow a business.
Thrive15.com has teamed up David Robinson and the U.S. Chamber’s Hiring Our Heroes Program to provide free subscriptions to U.S. military families as part of the 1 for 1 HandUp Movement. The program works by providing a free subscription to veteran, reserve, and active duty members of the U.S. military and their spouses for every paid subscription on the website.
