Why did you choose entrepreneurship? Choosing entrepreneurship was easy for me. My love of words and wanting to help encourage people while elevating their thinking. Everyone doesn't have a support system or strong foundation I want my company and my books to provide and solidify that.
Why do military spouses make great entrepreneurs? We are very versatile in our thinking and motivation. Always ready for change, thinking inside as well as outside of the box. Military spouses understand sacrifice, delays, and victory. Life doesn't always come in a neat box or pretty bow. We make it work with what we have and we make it great. We see a need and we supply it.
What is a "blocker" for you in business. What holds you back? My blocker for business right now is money. Also exposure and marketing. They're so many people I want to reach. So many venues to walk into. Working my faith and networking until no becomes yes, yes becomes concrete!
How has being a military spouse changed your for the better? Being a military spouse changed me for the better in ways of maturity and survival. Coming from a large family, you take what you know and add it to what you learn. All walks of life come together for one purpose our military spouse. It's help me to understand my vitality to my spouse. He needs to always know home is taken care of.
What strengths do you possess, that you did not know you had, until you became an entrepreneur? Believing in myself. Knowing what I have is important. I've always fought for other people and their dreams. Finally I learned to focus on myself and my dreams. Understanding everyone wouldn't want to become a part of it. Spectators are welcome. Standing firm in my core values loving the knowledge I gain wisdom freely given. Learning what doesn't work right now may work later. My biggest strength I believe I've gained is no makes me work harder. I love and believe in my product.
What would you tell a milspo entrepreneur who is feeling discouraged? Feeling discouraged can become overwhelming. Go back to your plan. Why are things not working? What can you do differently? Also understand patience is also a vital part of our lives. Stay focused! Find someone to help you brainstorm, ask for help and be willing to accept it. Your time is coming. Keep working don't give up!

What is the most amazing thing you have experienced in your business thus far? My most amazing thing is when I get an email about how my book has touched an entire family. When people want to thank you for giving them the gift of communication back. It's very powerful and amazing. When a parent says my child doesn't read yet they love your book!! Awesome and humbling!
How do you want to be remembered? Remember me by what I've done in the terms of how my words helped you. My prayer is I'm always found giving positive words of love to help elevate your thinking and encourage your life. Understanding I will always give truth even when it hurts. Tough love is still love! Sometimes we need the little things to help us accomplish our big things.
