Freelance Vets with Jay Sheehan

Military Spouse Turned Entrepreneur (1)

This week we have an episode that is relatable to both military spouses and Veterans that have transitioned from Active Duty. We’re talking with entrepreneur and Army Veteran Jay Sheehan, who founded Freelance Vets, a freelance network exclusive to Veterans and Military spouses. In this episode, he gets candid about the hardships both military spouses and Veterans have when searching for employment, and how discovering the holes in the job market helped him discover entrepreneurship. He also explains how Freelance Vets shows the value of hiring a Veteran or Military Spouse.

“What better way to design your life than to literally create a business around yourself.”  – Jay Sheehan
