If you’re a military wife, I don’t have to tell you how stressful it can be. Between deployments and having to constantly pick up your whole life and move – it can be difficult to find meaningful employment. That’s why starting your own network marketing business it the perfect gig for military wives.
While they’re not legally allowed to, many businesses can and will discriminate against military wives during the hiring process. You might be the most qualified candidate for the position, but as soon as they hear that you are a military spouse – and they it’s possible you may be posted at any time – your chances of getting the job have significantly decreased.
According to reports, military spouses, 95 percent of whom are women, struggle to find meaningful employment. A 2014 study found that 90 percent of female spouses reported being underemployed or overqualified for their jobs. This can sometimes be attributed to the fact that not all postings are equal – many or not in cities, but smaller towns with very few employment opportunities. Also, military wives earn, on average, 38 percent less than their civilian counterparts and are 30 percent more likely to be unemployed. These numbers are significant!
Why Consider Network Marketing
- Bring your business with you wherever you go! We move. Often and many times unexpectedly. Losing your employment and income can be difficult. With a network marketing business, you can bring it with you!
- No need for childcare. You can work your business completely from home if you choose, which means you are bringing in income while also not having to pay for outside childcare.
- You CAN make money. Don’t believe the haters who say you can’t. There are so many of us who do! And with a very small investment needed, what do you have to lose? If you’ve been thinking about starting your own business, I encourage you to try it out for yourself!
- It keeps you busy and gives you a purpose! Sometimes we get so caught up in our spouse’s military career that we forget about our own needs! Having your own business is satisfying – it will give you a purpose, and something to keep you busy through all of the deployments!
