Inspiring entrepreneurial military spouses to be empowered in business, re-define their identity & gain confidence

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.

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

‘You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think’

You may be struggling to find a meaningful job because of this life – you’re not alone. Military life is tough, we know that because we are living it every day. But we are also a community that is making amazing things happen, turning our passion into profit despite the challenges of military life. And you are a part of it!

Hundreds of military spouses have already taken back control of their careers through the power of entrepreneurship. Now you can listen to their stories.


The skill sets of the military spouse are no different to any other community, yet we are often perceived differently by business.

It’s time to break those barriers, move away from the stereotypes and show the world just what we are made of.

We are natural leaders with a mission to create amazing businesses, no matter what service life throws at us.

We are here, we are seen, and we are making a difference!
