Why Patriot Broadband Is a Great Business Opportunity for U.S. Military Veterans
Qualities of a successful business owner are things like responsibility, discipline, a focus on excellence, and the ability to learn as the business adapts. These qualities can be hard to find, but one specific group of people typically meet all of them, and more: military veterans. Veterans possess a wealth of knowledge and skills from years of training and education they received while serving. Qualities and characteristics common in veterans make them an ideal franchisee for a business like Patriot Broadband.
Patriot Broadband was founded by a US Airforce Veteran, Rodney Balance, Jr. After having to move to another town just to run his business due to lack of internet service, he decided to dedicate all his time to improve the lives of others by finding a solution to the internet problem in rural America.
Our founder believes that this brand and the unique franchise opportunity is a good fit for fellow veterans for multiple reasons. Veterans possess many qualities that are synonymous with a great business owner. According to Business.com, “The military excels at teaching transferable ‘soft’ skills of critical thinking and multitasking, teamwork and leadership, integrity and motivation, among others,” said Edward Slavis, a former U.S. Marine Infantry Officer who served in Iraq. “I apply these skills to my real estate business, but they could be employed in any field.”
We identified some specific characteristics that many veterans possess that we know would make them great franchise owners with our company.
Discipline & Organizational Skills
Discipline is a vital element necessary for owning a successful business. There is a lot to keep up with when starting a new franchise, and our team has the resources and tools to help you. But a franchisee must be able to stay organized and focused in order to be successful in the long run. Veterans have already built the habits of discipline and organization during their time of service.
Understanding of Teamwork & Loyalty
A smart business owner should have the best interest of their team and their market in mind at all times. Veterans have a deep understanding of teamwork and the value of loyalty that they bring into any business they play a role in. Patriot Broadband is a product for communities, and any Patriot Franchisees must be loyal to the community that they serve.
Never Say Never Attitude & Confidence
Perseverance is a quality that any profitable business owner must possess in order to get through all the phases of starting up a new business location. Franchisees must be confident in the product we provide, and their own ability to serve the community through this business model. Veterans have to face unimaginable situations when they are serving our country, and have the wherewithal to beat any tough business situation.
