Why I Support Military Spouse Entrepreneurship
Military spouses sacrifice an incredible amount of autonomy as they move from assignment to assignment with their significant other. My wife gave up a job in the pharmaceutical industry that paid better than my 6 year captain salary to move around the world with me.
Many military spouses struggle to find work when they move to a different city, state, or country. Sometimes local laws don't even allow for spouses to work on the local economy.
The US military does a terrible job of accommodating the modern working spouse. I want to do what I can to help military spouses achieve their definition of success, whether that means working at home, outside the home, raising a family, or however they define it.
There are so many well educated and hard working spouses out there who have limited opportunities to have a fulfilling career, to add to the family bank accounts, or to simply bring in their own income. I want to support the entrepreneurs, the influencers, and the military spouses who won't settle for the status quo.
Please share this post with a deserving military spouse that you think would benefit from attending the Military Influencers Conference DC in September 2019. I'm looking forward to reading your excellent articles!
