In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Patrick Bet-David goes over the major lessons he learned in the military that drove him to become a successful entrepreneur and millionaire. 

Learning how to manage chaos was a key takeaway for Bet-David. In the military and when starting your own business, everything is happening at the same time. Finding a way to be poised and handle this stress is vital for success.

The military is all about executing missions -- Bet-David finds that being mission-driven was another important element that he could apply to business. As an entrepreneur, you should know what your mission is and how you will complete it. 

Figuring out how to get more done with limited resources and learning how to perform under pressure were also among the many things the military taught Bet-David.
