Tell us about your business! I have 2 businesses. I own a Personal Training business where I help others achieve their health and fitness goals whether in person or online. I am also an Author and Advocate for Special Needs.
Why did you choose entrepreneurship? I am a Soldier and military spouse. Every time our family moves, we start over. I have to introduce my business to new people often. I love seeing new faces and I love that I can take my business anywhere.
Why do military spouses make great entrepreneurs? We make great entrepreneurs because we are RESILIENT. We can take care of home and run businesses and still make it look easy. We CAN'T just throw in the towel when we're having a bad day.
What is a "blocker" for you in business. What holds you back? I'd say time can hold me back. I have so many thoughts in my head all the time and having time to do everything that I want to do can sometimes be a challenge.
How has being a military spouse changed your for the better? It has changed my because I'm able to meet new people and be diverse in life.
What strengths do you possess, that you did not know you had, until you became an entrepreneur? Organization and strength. I've learned that I need a daily plan and goals. I've learned that not everyone wants your help and that's ok.
What would you tell a milspo entrepreneur who is feeling discouraged? NEVER give up. Trust me, if the idea is in your head, go for it. Be your OWN woman and hold on tight to your business. Separate your identity from your spouse.
What are your five favorite things that you can not live without as a milspo entrepreneur?
- Social Media
What is the most amazing thing you have experienced in your business thus far? That it can become the greatest achievement and it's what you put into it.
How do you want to be remembered? RESILIENT, STRONG, WOMAN OF GOD, LOVING, GO-GETTER, FAMILY WOMAN
