I am an Air Force wife and entrepreneur. I wanted to share with you what we are trying to do at Military Spouse Connections. In light of the sequestration, we want to encourage military spouses to be proactive and not reactive to the coming changes. Empowering military spouses is key. I am the Executive Director at Military Spouse Connections (MSC). The nature of our business is to provide businesses and individuals with qualified candidates, while assisting military spouses gain rewarding careers and maintaining being gainfully employed. It is our goal to educate military spouses on careers and business opportunities available to them. Many military spouses are not aware of the opportunities they have to have a flexible and portable career and also to be their own boss. We give military spouses at different bases the opportunity to do events like we do that will educate spouses on careers, business opportunities as well as schools that will still fit into their lifestyle.
