Mission: Military Spouse Entrepreneur

I began my journey to being a Military Spouse Entrepreneur literally on the opposite of the world. As an Australian trained attorney I found myself living with my active duty military spouse in a US State where there was no path for me to be admitted to the Bar. After serving a District Attorney’s Office writing motions and case notes, and leading a large regional non profit as its Executive Director, we moved to another military base in the same state.

Why I care about the Handbag I carry #bagsonamission

This post contains affiliate links. I am a brand Ambassador for R.Riveter. I have received products in exchange for my role as as a brand Ambassador for R.Riveter.

I didn’t have stylish clothes and hated trying to figure out what was “in.” For a long time I didn’t carry a Continue reading →
