The great thing about being a veteran transitioning to a home inspection franchise is that you probably already possess the skills necessary to run an effective. Leadership, for example, is one of the most common talents veterans learn during their service, and it also happens to be one of the most important attributes when running a Pillar To Post franchise. Having the ability to set goals, and communicate clearly with your clients or team, is of paramount importance.
