For months I have been blogging about how to budget and save money. Today I am writing to inform you how to make some.
Shortly after my daughter was married her husband joined the Marines. They moved far away and we all quickly learned about the challenges a Military Spouse endures. They moved several times over the years and finding a job as a Military Spouse is difficult. Employers were glad your spouse was serving the country but not so glad that they would hire you and then have to re-hire and re-train the next person because you were relocated again. Children came along after a couple of years and that made it more difficult to work outside the home. (I know I don’t look old enough to have grandchildren but I do) I really did not know how big an issue this was until a few months ago when I attended a Military Job Fair and picked up a copy of “Military Spouse Magazine”, there were several stories about the challenges. I found out that my daughter was not alone. Then during a conversation on the topic someone said to me, “Tell your daughter thank you for serving”. Then it hit home, she did not strap on the gun everyday but she supported her country by being a strong supporting spouse and keeping the home front intact while her husband was away.
To keep this brief I found a legitimate business that is portable and a military spouse can take with them as they move. Since most everyone knows about the product based businesses out there already I shied away from those. I was not interested in a business where you had to keep inventory, make deliveries and collect money so I settled on energy, solar, gas and electric. Everyone understands it. Everyone already uses it. Everyone likes to save money on it. It’s easy to explain. Your customers save money and you make money. That’s a great foundation to build your new business on.
The timing is right as the US Government deregulates energy all over our great nation. Since utilities are highly regulated you can be assured only a reputable company can be approved by federal, state and local authorities. It does not matter what state you are in you can be in business with America’s # 1 retail provider of energy Ambit Energy and the #1 residential Solar installer Sunrun.
Our motto is “Integrity Before Growth”. Both companies have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Ambit Energy received the, JD Powers Award in several states and was featured in INC. Magazine as the Fastest Growing Independently Owned Company in America. Click here for additional information: Military Spouse Business 5 minute Overview
