Have you just retired from a career in the military? Are you looking for other working opportunities? Thankfully, you are in luck! There are plenty of ways you can get involved in the free market using the skills you obtained through your service. These ideas demand reliable and passionate individuals who care about their industry.
Contract work has become incredibly common in all sorts of industries, and becoming a private security officer is no exception. Instead of being hired regularly, you will get paid to do a job for an allotted amount of time. Because you are a private contractor, you can set your rates and times that are off-limits. This works great if you need a flexible schedule.
You can go through a type of agency that can help you find clients. Apply through them to get the gigs you want. Most people who are hired into this field are required to have some sort of experience in the military or police force, so you should feel right at home.
Do you have a passion for firearms? If you do, becoming the owner of an indoor gun range might be for you! Not only would you be taking care of the range and the guns that people rent, but you could also get involved in firearm safety training—an important skill millions are learning about.
With a highly-regulated industry like firearms, you must stay compliant with ATF regulations. This will keep you out of federal and legal trouble. Be aware of the gun legislation that is passed in your state. Otherwise, you could be breaking the law unintentionally. Owning a gun range can be fulfilling and exciting, but requires a lot of responsibility.
Few people are more prepared than the nation’s soldiers. Not only do you have to be on your feet, lest something goes wrong, but you also need to be aware of long-term preparation. Many returned veterans decide to pursue a career in emergency preparedness for this purpose.
This industry provides a lot of variation in what you do. You could focus on creating emergency preparedness packs for families. You could help people develop food storage in their homes. You could hold emergency preparedness training classes for small companies, so they know what to do if a natural disaster were to occur. Make it your own!
These are just a handful of the careers that are out there. Figure out what your passion is, and gear your career toward it! This will help you and the people you work with.

Breaking taboo called FAILURE by talking openly about it, sharing my fail stories and lessons that I learned on my way back from hell. I had four successful companies that at one time all went bankrupt. You could say that I went from hero to zero. But I managed to survive! Down that road I became Fail Coach not by degree but by failing personally and professionally, learning from my failures and growing. If you are looking for a coach try not to find one with shiny diploma hanging on his wall but one that has personally gone to hell and back.
