Though Johnson is busy with his podcast and other projects, he is enjoying getting to work with Yelp, especially after they launched a $100,000 Veteran Business Fund, awarding $10,000 to 10 deserving veteran-led or veteran-owned small businesses.
“Yelp has been my absolute favorite because this is so near and dear to me since I’m a veteran myself,” he says. “After serving my country and coming back to serve my community, being a mentor and then becoming a business owner myself, this was a great fit. To be able to work with Yelp and highlight those individuals, veterans and business owners as well is absolutely amazing. We have 19 million people that serve the country and about 250,000 of those every year get out of the military, and some of those are brave and courageous enough to become an entrepreneur. Yelp is putting their money where their mouth is, as they’re giving away $10,0000 to 10 different veterans.”
