Take a leap of faith and make the jump from where you are to where you want to be!
Who I am – I’m Damian Taafe-McMenamy, and I’m a soldier, a husband and a future entrepreneur. I say future entrepreneur because right now I’m more of an apprentice and that’s a fine place to start.
I have an amazing wife, Dervan, who is also in the Army, and four crazy pets that fill our lives with fun and hairballs.
Why I am starting this blog – MILBIZ was started on an idea I had about two years ago. I wanted to start a business, but I didn’t know how, or where to learn more while still on active duty. There isn’t a lot of information available for spouses or active service members to learn about entrepreneurship and so, to fill the gap, I started talking to people who had already made the leap.
Each person had a different story. Some were experienced and some were just starting. What was important was that they had taken action to start building something.
When I would share those stores with other people, they would start telling me about their own ideas for business, but didn’t know where to start. When these people talked about their own ideas, you could hear passion and excitement in their voice, they just needed some direction and support. After seeing this many times, I decided that since it didn’t exist, it should be built and boom, MILBIZ was born.
What we are going to focus on – So we are going to do some pretty cool things here. We will feature podcasts from different types of military entrepreneurs. Some are just starting, some have already become successful, and they will all share how they got started, as well as some actions that you can take to start your own business.
We’ll also have blog posts about life as a military entrepreneur including resources, strategies and answers to your questions about entrepreneurship. Our goal is to build a community where we can help each other in our individual pursuits to start our own MILBIZs.
