Master Class: Fearless: How to Be A Rich Military Spouse


    Master Class Recap

    If you want a great career and a great military marriage, you do not have to be totally fearless (and all that implies.). Instead, you only need to fear LESS. Worry LESS. Talk-yourself-out-of-it LESS. Because you really are the worker so many employers want most.

    That’s why we put together this master class to share all we have learned from coaching thousands of military spouses on the job hunt. You can expect to learn the following:

    1. How to avoid the lure of common career off-ramps that could lead you into low-pay or no-pay work.
    2. How to bring together your many talents, skills, and job experiences into one clear goal that makes employers want to hire you.
    3. How to access the spouse employment programs that help you leap over your lack of a local network and into the in-person, hybrid, or remote work you want most.
    4. The magic words to ensure you and your service member can end up with the happily-ever-after you dreamed of.
