We go live with the first episode of The MILBIZ Show! In this short episode you will find out what the podcast is, who I am and why this podcast should matter to you.
What is the show? – The MILBIZ show is a weekly podcast that interviews service members, spouses, and veterans who have taken the leap to start their own business. We share the journey of our guests from military service, the transition to the civilian side; how they came up with their idea and the initial steps they took to turn idea into a business.
Why does this matter? – Too many service members and spouses struggle to find meaningful work outside and after the military. Constant moves, continually changing jobs and the difficulty of capturing the military experience on a resume can make finding a job challenging. Now, more than ever, service members and spouses should consider entrepreneurship. With planning and preparation, you can create a business that gives you the purpose, flexibility, and income that you want instead of taking what is available on the job market.
Who am I? – I am Damian Taafe-McMenamy, an active duty Major stationed at Fort Leavenworth. In my 12 years, I have deployed three times to Iraq, been station in Germany, Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii. My wife, Dervan, is also an active duty Major. With only 8 years until retirement, I have committed to starting and building a business that gives me both freedom and purpose. If you like what you hear, subscribe to the show in iTunes or Stitcher and leave a review. Reviews are how I know what you think about what I am doing and it enables others to find the show. I’m looking forward to seeing where we can take MILBIZ! – Damian
