132: "Sometimes securing that next income source isn't the most important thing in post-military life." Becoming an entrepreneur with Jason Madden

Jason Madden went from serving for 15 years to transitioning to a military spouse, Franchise Entrepreneur, Career Ownership Coach, and Co-Host of the Doin’ The Thing Podcast. He shares how becoming medically discharged and his desire to be with his wife were the catalysts for him to reinvent himself as a veteran. Today, Jason educates veterans on the various ways to be an entrepreneur, describes intrapreneurship for people working within a company, how to use your own funds (i.e. the Thrift Savings Plan) to invest in your own business, and much more.
