At some point, you may entertain the idea of being your own boss. Preparatory work includes conducting market research, writing a business plan, deciding on a business name and location, getting federal and state tax identification, applying for licenses and permits, and more. The SBA Office of Veterans Business Development (OVBD) offers education and training on the entrepreneurial process through several paths, two of which are Boots to Business (B2B) and Boots to Business: Reboot. Boots to Business is the entrepreneurship track to business ownership within the U.S. Department of Defense's Transition Assistance Program offered to transitioning servicemembers.
