How can military members, past and present, jump into entrepreneurship?
If you are interested to learn how then this episode is for you. Our Kickass Boomer of the Day, Ryan Garrett, will talk about his retirement after 36 years of working as a financial advisor and partner of Edward Jones in South Boston, VA.
He has been in leadership roles most of his career, being used to working 100 hours a week. Ryan is now dedicating time to helping veterans and their families learn how to be an entrepreneur if that is something they would like to do.
The Rosie Network and Racing for Heroes both support our military and their families and also our first responders. These organizations help with mentoring, training, and support for both groups.
Join me in this episode and learn why Ryan is a Kickass Boomer!
