    Type of content: News

    Hang out with entrepreneurs long enough and you notice patterns.

  • Best for Vets: Employers 2017

    Type of content: News

    Benny Kinsey retired from the Army in 2010 thinking his experience as a command sergeant major with two bachelor’s degrees and an MBA would make it easy to land a job in the civilian workforce.
