I couldn’t decide who to interview this week, so I decided to do a little round up of veteran entrepreneur interviews and articles. Instead of five questions, here are five of the best interviews I’ve seen recently.
1) On overcoming obstacles: Veteran Empire’s podcast with Noah Currier, a retired Marine corporal, Iraq veteran, and founder of Oscar Mike, a 100% Made in America clothing brand with military-inspired clothing and active wear to help people, especially disabled veterans like Noah, get “On the Move!”
2) On franchising: Entrepreneur’s interview with retired Army and former drill sergeant Ron Adams. His answers to how much it cost him to start his franchise, where he got advice, and the unexpected challenges he faced are the most helpful.
3) On how military skills translate to entrepreneurship: In an article written for Entrepreneur, Greg Coleman, a former KC-10 pilot turned tech entrepreneur (and TechStars participant), compares how four traits are key for both military and business survival.
4) On how military skills make successful CEOs: Through a variety of snippets, a Business Insider article asks several former military members how their service prepared them to become CEOs for such megacompanies as Verizon and FedEx.
5) On how inspiration can strike at the oddest moment and how you have to be prepared to capitalize on it: In the latest podcast from Command Your Business, former naval aviator Ben Kohlmann talks about how a quick article turned into something bigger.
