"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."

"[As a military spouse] I get to live all over the world and experience life in so many different cultures.  I get to make new friends and develop new passions every couple of years, and I now have friends scattered all over the globe.  My children get to experience SO much of life that I didn't have growing up."

- Carmen Westbrook, Aina

"I am an Army spouse, going on 14 years (and 9 PCS moves), and mom to two #milbrats who keep life energized and on the go! I started out my professional career as a child development specialist for Army MWR, but after 10 years of moving around as a military spouse, had to get creative with a way to find fulfillment and income that meshed well with the transient and unpredictable military lifestyle. Military. Families. Fitness. Start Ups. That's my jam."

- Erica McMannes, MadSkills

"As a military spouse, you learn to be a number of things very quickly. You learn to adapt, to be flexible, to be creative, to be independent and to be strong. In the almost three years we have been married, my husband and I have been apart for almost half of that. Although I hate the time we have been apart, I credit it to my self growth. Time apart has challenged me in ways I would have never experienced had we been together. Time apart has allowed me to become stronger, and has really contributed to the growth and success of my business. I am more confident in myself than ever before, and I tackle challenges in my business head on."

- Elizabeth Beck, Gold Bud Designs

"Since I'm a military brat AND a military spouse, I think I have a unique perspective. I was raised to be independent and resilient, but perhaps being a military spouse has taken that to the next level. I'm a champion lawnmower, handy[wo]man, accountant, planner, and house shopper. I think I'm more organized as a military spouse than I might have been otherwise!"

- Beth Jones, The Float Spa SF
