I'm a proud sponsor of the Florida Association of Veteran Owned Businesses. This organization is constantly bringing value to it's members and to its corporate sponsors. Throughout the recent months, they have created educational platforms for those who wish to become an entrepreneur, as well as set aside opportunities at the enterprise level for those that already own their own business. They are currently working to create these same set aside opportunities at the state governmental levels as well.

This is an awesome Chamber, but it's more like an awesome HUGE Family of Veteran Business Owners and those of us committed to their success. The After Hours Event last week was truly an energized environment and an awesome fishing hole for Opportunities, Decision Makers and Potential Strategic Alliances. Kudos to the entire TEAM, BOARD and Membership.

Many veterans go without purpose or guidance which leads to failure and in my case homelessness. I was very fortunate to have a support team that brought be back on my feet several years ago. Veterans in many cases we do not ask for help or handouts causing many to end up in the predicaments we most end up in. The chamber is dedicate to the betterment our communities and our veterans along helping veteran owned businesses have a voice. Best choice I ever made.

FAVOB has been helping military men and woman in return for their service and sacrifices they have done for our country support that empowers and enables them to lead confident and productive lives. Helping them connect with companies that hire veterans....helping entrepreneurs connect with the right people to achieve their dreams. I am not a veteran but I have quite a few family members that have served this country and did not have an organization to help them after they came from the war with opportunities to achieve their dreams. This is what attracted me to be a member of this great organization and what they stand for.
