Dog Tag Inc. seeks to provide a transformative opportunity for veterans with disabilities, spouses, and caregivers by offering an education through Georgetown University and experiential learning in our small business venture, Dog Tag Bakery.
TheOldManSays that this is a hands-on venture for Veterans who have the desire to learn and earn with their own small business venture. There is an opportunity to do the jobs that are required to manage and operate a small business. Classroom activity is backed up by real world experience.
Supported by the Small Business Administration grant, this is the type of program that needs to be emulated wherever and whenever possible. Imagine if you will, business projects like this opening up across the country to help Veterans engage and learn the best business practices. There is no doubt that business and the Veteran both benefit when engaged to work together. The opportunity to own and operate a small business is an incentive for many Veterans. Given the opportunity to participate in a mentoring program will benefit not only the Veteran but also the community he or she works and lives in.
These mentoring programs work because the Veteran already has the prerequisites for learning for success: discipline, the ability to follow instruction and a willingness to sacrifice.
Do you run a small business? Do you know someone who runs a small business and would be willing to consider developing a program like the Dog Tag Bakery? Nothing succeeds like success. Here is a proven program that works!
“Dog Tag helped me to begin living my passion, to build my business.
Now, I can help others go from stuck to unstuck; from“disabled” to “able.”
