Introducing Our Exclusive Executive One-on-One Coaching Program

“Coaching is solution-focused, much more fast paced than counseling is. When you are looking for ‘how do I take the next step?’ ‘what is my next step?’ having that outside perspective and mentor that is coming alongside and helping you ask tough questions, or asking reflective questions to help you get to know yourself a little bit more, whether you’re stuck or not, it just gives you that momentum to really make progress faster.” -Corie Weathers

If you are a service member transitioning to civilian life, a veteran with a small business, or a military spouse looking to entrepreneurship, but you don’t know your next steps, we have an exclusive opportunity for you with our executive coaching pilot program, Finding Your Second Service! We have joined with esteemed executive coaches, Army Chaplain Matthew and Corie Weathers, LPC, NCC, to bring you a two-week executive coaching program that unlocks your potential so you can better understand yourself, how you do business, and how success can be within reach utilizing your talents and strengths. 

  • Tailored Program: Matt and Corie understand the specific challenges faced by veterans and military spouses. They give customized guidance to address these unique hurdles, making success more accessible to military-affiliated entrepreneurs.
  • Self-Awareness: Whether you have a business idea or are already running your own business, Finding Your Second Service allows you to learn more about yourself and the best approach for your business. See in which areas you excel, where you need support from others, and how to set yourself up for success.
  • Learning Opportunities: Building a network and learning from those already in the field is crucial in business. Within this coaching program, you will benefit from the combined knowledge and expertise of fellow entrepreneurs and our Second Service Foundation mentors and coaches. 
  • Leadership Skills: The military instills leadership skills, but within our program, these skills can be refined for civilian business success. Your coach will help you recognize and adapt your unique leadership abilities to the corporate world.

You have the talent, strengths, and determination to create a successful business, and we’re here to guide you — from start-up to the stars. Invest in yourself, your dreams, and your future by applying to the Finding Your Second Service program today. 

It’s time to step into your second service. 

The program is free to accepted Participants because of the generosity of our sponsor, the D’Aniello Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University. To learn more, visit
