Starting and running a business is tough! When you’re an entrepreneur and a military spouse, the struggles can feel twice as hard. That’s why community is so important for military spouse entrepreneurs. Finding a group that’s supportive, encouraging, and is cheering for you to succeed makes all the difference.
I discovered that community a few years ago. The MilSpouse Creative® + Entrepreneurs group was founded by Moni Jefferson in 2015 as a networking community for military spouse entrepreneurs around the world to connect, collaborate, cultivate relationships and build the business of their dreams while still supporting their family wherever the military moved them.
With now over 2700 members, the community is growing every single day and is filled with active-duty, retired, and reserve military spouses in all stages of business – from those with the spark of an idea to those who are growing, and those wanting to scale.
I’ve had the pleasure of being part of this military spouse community for several years – learning and collaborating with fellow milspouses around the world. This year I’m joining 18 other amazing military spouse entrepreneurs as a MilSpouse Creative® + Entrepreneurs Community Leader. We’ll each take a week every quarter to share a bit of love and mentorship with the group.
From January 25 -31, 2021, I’ll be sharing my very best business advice, connecting with the over 2700 military spouses in the group, and offering a little bit of mentorship to those who are just starting their business journey or may be stuck somewhere along the way.
If you are a military spouse with an idea for a business or have been in business for a while and are looking for some advice, support, or mentorship, join us in the MilSpouse Creative® + Entrepreneurs group.
Running a business from home, sometimes halfway around the world far away from family and friends can feel lonely. Having a community to cheer you on and support you when you get stuck boosts your motivation and keeps you moving toward your goals and dreams.
