Wise Now Steps Into Helping Returning Veterans Find Entrepreneurial Success

Share Article

According to the Small Business Administration, 2.4 million of the 27.1 non-farm businesses in the U.S. are owned by veterans. But with thousands of former military personnel entering the work force each month -- bringing with them a vital combination of skills and effectiveness -- that number will continue to grow.

"You set the standard, and the company rises and falls on your command. So if you want a smooth, well-oiled process, you can have that. It just takes planning and perseverance, two things our service members have in abundance."

Industry leader Wise Business Plans is stepping up to help guide these men and women in uniform toward civilian success.

"Members of the military are in a unique position to appreciate and thrive on the challenges of entrepreneurship," said Joseph Ferriolo, director at Wise. "It's hard to faze them, because they know what true life-and-death situations feel like. But they are also trained to quickly and efficiently assess any situation and make important decisions with confidence."

They are also highly aware of the need for strong but flexible planning, he said.

"We find that clients with a military background seek us out because they know the importance of good planning and we pay attention to the details that matter. They come to us aware of the areas they may need additional information to prepare for, and we provide them with that information in an efficient and timely manner. It's a good match, because we value effectiveness and quality under pressure as much as they do."

Ferriolo said moving from the military world -- a highly organized, well-honed machine -- to the free-for-all of the civilian business landscape can be jarring for some. But it doesn't have to be that way.

"One of the biggest truths we try to demonstrate to our veteran clients -- and all the others -- is that you are in control of the efficiency of your business," he said. "You set the standard, and the company rises and falls on your command. So if you want a smooth, well-oiled process, you can have that. It just takes planning and perseverance, two things our service members have in abundance."
