    Military life brings with it many new challenges, it also provides us with some incredible opportunities to do things we have never done before. It reminds me of the times I spent sitting around the small television screen with my siblings eating popcorn and wondering if the crew of the Enterprise would survive their latest mission. I still laugh when I think of all of the episodes with the puff balls in every duct or when Captain Kirk inspired his crew to boldly go where they had never gone before. Anyway, .military life challenges us to carve new paths and boldly go and for this week the adventure is as…

    3 Tips to Overcome The Frustration of Social Media Marketing

    Have you ever been frustrated because things aren’t having the results that you want them to? Maybe it’s that sales aren’t moving at the speed you expected?

So in January of last year I set a weight loss goal to lose 50 pounds before I turned 50 (on March 21, 2015). I’m proud to say that not only did I lose the weight, but I hit my goal…

    Milspouse Reflections: Don’t Let Your Fear of Change Hold You Back

    Fear of change is the greatest challenge I face as a military spouse and it’s often the thing that holds me back from having a great experience. Change in the military environment used to be a recipe for disaster. You see I like routine, consistency and knowing that my actions will produce the results I am looking for. But change is one of the things that trips many of us up and we all know that as milspouses change is part of our everyday existence.  Whether it’s a pcs, deployment, TDY orders, a new baby, or any situation life throws at us, change is something that we can’t ignore. Over the last 6 1/2  years we have had LOTS…
