What we're about

Year after year, the Blue Star Families’ Military Family Lifestyle Survey reveals that military families are concerned about the amount of their family income and lack of employment available for spouses. We believe that entrepreneurship is a solution that can alleviate some of those stresses.

We are a community of military spouse entrepreneurs, sidepreneurs, and/or wantrepreneurs who encourage and inspire each other. Our focus is not so much on promoting our businesses, but instead on sharing resources that will help our businesses to start, grow, flourish, and realize our "big hairy scary goals".

In order to join this group, you or your spouse must have a military affiliation, whether that be active duty, reserves, National Guard, or retired. We don’t mean to be exclusionary, but we do want to encourage entrepreneurship among those in the military community who have the desire and aptitude to own their own business.

Our meet ups are friendly, both for you and your children. We meet at Wegmans in Alexandria, next to the children's play area in the back of the store. Bring your kids, grab a cuppa something to sip on, and join us. We look forward to joining you for coffee, connection and conversation soon!

Take your Milimompreneer experience farther than geographical boundaries...we are a community that stays connected even through military moves! Join our closed group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/milimompreneer/), where opportunities, resources, ideas and information are exchanged. The only requirement is disclosure of your military affiliation.
