Building a Business that Works for You

From the Battlefield to the Boardroom Podcast

Ben Burt, Army Veteran, knew very little about franchise ownership when he transitioned out of the military. He considered a career in the medical field based on his military background, but quickly realized that his top priority was finding a career that would allow him the flexibility to spend more time with his family - which is what led him to become a franchise owner.

Fibrenew specializes in the repair, restoration, and renewal of leather, plastic, vinyl, fabric, and upholstery. As a franchise owner, Ben gets to make his own schedule and work with customers to repair everything from medical furniture to boat and aircraft interiors. In this episode Ben discusses his rewarding journey as a franchise owner and why franchise ownership is a great career for veterans. Topics include:

  • Ben's military background and what led him to Fibrenew
  • Focusing on your values determine your career path
  • Leveraging lessons learned from the military to become a successful business owner
