The holidays are fast approaching and families are beginning to prepare for Thanksgiving. Before we enjoy this cherished holiday and start to contemplate Christmas, let’s remember the one group of Americans who will not be able to celebrate the holidays at home. They are the gallant men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, who are scattered across the globe fighting for freedom in the Middle East, Afghanistan, Africa and other areas of the world.
I recall the emotion as if it happened only yesterday: the overwhelming pride, the pure joy and the unshakable belief that I had truly helped another human being. Two years ago, I began mentoring a young veteran on how to start a small ecommerce business. Six months ago, he notified me that his online niche t-shirt business was earning just over $100,000 per month in gross sales.
I move a lot. Serving in the U.S. military for 10 years and then running my own business as a veteran, I have become somewhat of a relocation expert. My most recent home purchase was on August 25, using the VA home loan process from start to finish.
