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!
