Old Line Spirits with Mark McLaughlin

Old Line Spirits; Veteran On The Move

For the 400th episode of Veteran On The Move, Joe is joined by Mark McLaughlin, the co-founder of Old Line Spirits. Along with fellow Navy Veteran Arch Watkins, Mark seized the opportunity to transform a love of whiskey into a successful distillery. Mark shared his post military story; from utilizing the GI Bill for graduate education to working two years as an investment banker. After deciding that banking was not a good fit, Mark turned to entrepreneurship. He shares the lessons he learned through his experience; to include the importance of being able to adjust your business plan in the face of adversity and the value of continuing to learn.
