I don't usually post on Thursdays, but Billy Covington, who is the owner of Mr. Rooter Plumbing in Clarksville, Tenn., is speaking today about something that is near and dear to my heart - the VetFran Program.
He's joining military veteran and franchise business organizations around the country to bring attention to the unemployment issues U.S. military veterans are facing. At these events, they'll share the business opportunities available for our service men and women.
For example, the "Independence through Small Business Day" event Billy is participating in is at the Tasti D-Lite store in Nashville. You can read more about it on his local newspaper's website.

Here's wishing you a world class day.
