Mission: “The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) offers training in entrepreneurship and small business management to soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines wounded while serving or supporting combat operations in Iraq or Afghanistan. The EBV is committed to opening the door to entrepreneurship and small business ownership to these veterans, developing their competencies in the many steps and activities associated with creating and sustaining an entrepreneurial venture, and in coordinating with programs and services unique to veterans and others with disabilities.”


“This is a rare book, because Jim is able to weave together invaluable skills instruction with a very personal and informative story about his relationships with teammates, coaches, and most importantly his family.  Jim’s father, as both a veteran and a person with disabilities, clearly served as an exemplar for Jim with regard to how he approached basketball – and how he approached life.  This is clearly illustrated by the fact that Jim has committed to leverage the proceeds from sales of this book to improve the lives of this generation of veterans with disabilities.  On so many levels, Jim’s book is powerfully positioned to impart lessons about basketball and life that are meaningful and timeless.”
