VetStarts, A Redemption Story

What Vets are saying about VetStarts

“VetStarts is that missing link for confused veterans trying to become motivated world changers. I would want all of my brothers and sisters to attend VetStarts.”

“Suicide was once an option now it is my duty to live. VetStarts allows me to gain clarity of my potential future by getting down to the root of “who I am.” Mr. Leone has helped me find my purpose in life.”

“Mr. Leone is reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat. Vince’s ability to keep me grounded and help “myoscope” my future has allowed me to be the best person I can be.”

“I know I can trust Mr. Leone with all my secrets and problems. But most importantly, I have gained a strong connection with someone who has been through similar battles and that is the quintessential trust foundation.”
