The InDependent Spouse podcast

The weekly InDependent Spouse podcast is a series of fun, informative podcasts for the military spouse business owner

The InDependent Spouse podcast was born from a need to hear something new.

A need to hear from the inspirational men and women who experience service life from the ‘home-front’ while creating successful businesses.

To give a voice to those who are already achieving amazing things, and to inspire those who dream of doing the same.

As the traditional role of the ‘military spouse’ continues to evolve in line with the military itself, it seems only fitting to reflect these changes in a modern way. What’s also clear is the importance of developing your own role; one that gives you, the spouse, your own voice while also complimenting that of the service member.

In this series, Jess, a current military spouse running a business while living the ‘magnolia wall life’, explores the world of running a business by chatting to inspiring military entrepreneurs who do the same.

 So sit back and listen to their personal stories. Hopefully one day we’ll hear from you!

This week I have been talking to Jo Lomax, the inspirational founder of Huggable Heroes. Jo and her team produce personalised Huggable Heroes for those suffering from anxiety or separation. Inspired by her own experiences as a wife of a Marine, Jo started the company in 2015 and now helps all sorts of families with her Huggable Heroes.

They are for children who are in hospital, for children with separated parents, for those struggling with dementia, and of course for our own Armed Forces Community – because everyone going through deployment does need a hug!

This first episode of Series Two is very emotional and I cannot thank Jo enough for being so open and genuine when she shared her story with me.

Don't forget to subscribe, write a review, watch the new YouTube Vlog series, and head over to to see how it can help your 'magnolia wall life' business.
