I am a small business owner and wish to provide services to the military, however, I have no idea how to start the process. Any advice would help.

Thanks

Hi Gloria, thanks for your service. It'd be a good idea for you to join a business assocation or society for relocation professionals. That way you can attend their events, and network with people who are already doing what you want to do in this field. They can provide you with helpful advice on how to get started. Here's a list of relocation associations you can explore. https://www.gmsmobility.com/blog/relocation-associations-memberships/

Also, if you haven't already, you should register with a local Small Business Administration office. https://www.sba.gov/local-assistance/find They can also help you get started and point you in the right direction of how best to connect with potential clients.

Gloria,

A good investment is to get your real estate license and build a relocation service from the state where you are currently residing. A real estate license will allow you to be part of the government verification for the housing law process which creates more creditability.

I am on Linkedin if you would like to connect with me.

Gloria - one way is to use LinkedIn - use LinkedIn to network with individuals that have done the same thing - search relocation service companies and then the people send them a tailored connection request to set up an informational interview - secondly connect with me to broaden your network - https://www.linkedin.com/in/garyrossibaldrigecoach/
