When he retired from the military in 2013 and settled in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Gary Peterson began to explore several career options. 

In 2012 he read an article about a local charity needing support to fix one of its aging vans. He took on the challenge and fixed that van, and sold another vehicle for $4,000. That led him to realize that he could help raise more money for local charities.  He launched One Community Auto to help local nonprofits raise money for their causes. 

"After serving 23 years in the United States Air Force, I had the work ethic and dedication to run a small business, but I didn't have the business background," Peterson recalls. "I quickly realized that there were tons of resources to help me get up to speed." He started attending SCORE workshops to do just that.
