new podcast episode:

The Workforce Struggles within the Military Population and Bootstrapping a Business with Monica Fullerton, Founder of Spouse-ly

Today’s guest is Monica Fullerton. She’s a military spouse, mom of twins, and the CEO/Founder of Spouse-ly. In this episode we discuss the journey of feeling a calling for better change, doing something about it, and the blessings and struggles of bootstrapping a company. We also dive into community, networking, and the importance and support along the way.

With the military spouse unemployment rate at 24%, Monica knew something needed to change. For the last (almost) three years now she has been working diligently to grow the Spouse-ly community into something that will help the military and first responder community!
