Today was day one of a two day seminar presented by SCORE Acadiana aimed at helping veterans get an edge in the world of business. The workshop entitled, The Simple Steps to Starting a Business is part of a national initiative focused on teaching veterans the skills they need to be successful businessmen and businesswomen after their service.
Keynote speaker, Eric Thompson says that many veterans already have the skills necessary to create a business like discipline and direction. The workshop helps fine tune those skills and provides advice from people who have already proven themselves in the workplace. The event is free to veterans, paid for by tax dollars, and includes handbooks and reading materials to take home.
