About Veterans Business Resource Center (Vet Biz)

My superpower is delivering transparent communication ensuring everyone in the room knows what is happening, when it is happening and what part they play. My last 20 years has found me in the non-profit and entrepreneurship space specializing in program implementation, change management and creating group training programs. The first 20 years I traveled through the military, corporate communication and college instruction.

Working with people as they transition through one space to another is what excites me. Right now I focus on helping other experienced and nascent entrepreneurs who are transitioning military, veterans or family members decide if small business is the best decision for their now. Focused on Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and Illinois.

About Episode

Boots to Business is an entrepreneurial education and training program offered by the Small Business Administration. The purpose of such programs is to bring the principles of running a business to active-duty service members, veterans, and military spouses.

Nearly 1 in 10 ten small businesses in the United States are owned by veterans. That’s just one of the reasons why those who assist them, such as our guests today, are so vital on so many levels. For America to have a thriving culture of small business, we must invest in our veterans, and we are so fortunate that today’s guests are doing that work.

The Ignite Your Business Radio Show is proud to introduce VetBiz’s President and Chief Fear Conqueror Darcella Craven. Joining her as well is Mitchell Fitzpatrick, who joined Darcella’s organization just a few months ago, but who has established himself as one of the many crucial elements within this organization.

Here at Ignite Your Business Radio Show, we’re passionate about supporting business owners, and we’re even more passionate about supporting veterans. That’s why we believe that this month is #VeteransMonth. We feel so honored to have two distinguished veterans and entrepreneurs in our studio today. Not only did they serve this nation, but they have continued to dedicate themselves to the ideals of their military backgrounds by facilitating opportunities for all of their brothers and sisters in arms.
