"Active-Duty Entrepreneur" is a personal entrepreneurial story written by Jason C. Anderson, a retired USAF Lt Col who worked at the Pentagon from 2009-2014. Unbeknownst to Jason at the time, the book's concept was born driving on I-95 back to Alexandria, VA, from Fredericksburg in 2011 when he and his wife, Adrianna, began discussing life after retirement. With no (go-to) Federal jobs available in Jackson, Wyoming (Jason's hometown), he proclaimed, "We are going to start a small business" to which she quickly rebutted, "Hum...like the concept but why now? We are busy enough and have two kids under 5!" Jason had to do some quick thinking. After a few moments of awkward silence, he said, "Well, I have a stable job, stable pay, healthcare, and I know when I am going to retire. We have all the planning factors; this is the best time to start a small business." She agreed.

The Active-Duty Entrepreneur concept was born and the book was published a year later (2013) to help fellow military members consider small business startup using the same common sense model.

Active-Duty Entrepreneur

If you have a passion for anything in this age, it can most likely be turned into a business concept, and just about every military member will need and/or want a second career anyway. The author outlines a very viable and attractive alternative to continuing in government service or as a defense contractor. The information in this book was greatly relevant to me, as I have been thinking this way for some time. I wish I could have read it earlier in my military career.
