An accomplished insurance industry professional, Daniel Hohal resides in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Before joining the insurance industry, he served in the United States Air Force. To stay connected to his service, Daniel (“Dan”) Hohal supports The American Legion, Inc., which provides a range of services for veterans and their families.

The American Legion recently held its 57th annual Washington Conference, where participants had an opportunity to participate in the Boots to Business Reboot program. This two-step training program serves as a means of giving participants the knowledge and tools they need to break into the field of entrepreneurism.

The first step is a course called Introduction to Entrepreneurship, which is taught by the Small Business Administration. The second step requires individuals to take an eight-week online course called Foundations of Entrepreneurship led by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.

The Boots to Business Reboot program was offered to all veterans and service members, as well as their spouses, who are interested in launching their own businesses.
