For military spouses looking to create or expand their entrepreneur endeavors or who want to explore remote opportunities, the Association of Military Spouse Entrepreneurs Alliance is hosting a Remote Revolution on February 17-18.
This two-day virtual summit is an interactive event created to help military spouses build their ideal work future, said Moni Jefferson, CEO and co-founder of AMSE Alliance.
“The summit itself is hosted on a platform where (participants) will have the opportunity to interact with each other,” she said. “Most conferences you go to for furthering your business have great speakers, but they don’t know what it’s like to build a business while you are PCSing or while your spouse is deployed or you’re moving. We wanted to make sure that we offered an event that military spouses could go to and see themselves and come away with things they could execute and feel confident in doing.”
Remote Revolution will feature 45 industry experts and more than 400 military spouses for participants to connect with, including during virtual seminars, hands-on workshops and individual chats.
Participants do not have to have a business to enjoy the event, Jefferson said.
“If you have a side hustle and you don’t even think that your business is able to scale, we are going to tell you that it is,” she said. “This is the summit to come to if you are looking for confidence, motivation, tactics, strategies and a community to do it with.”
There will be two different tracks presented at the summit — entrepreneur and remote.
“Participants can go back and forth (between tracks) or they can follow one track and then watch the recordings of the other later.”
Keynote speakers for the event will be Felicia Jackson, the inventor, and owner of CPR Wrap; Amy Upchurch, the founder and CEO of Pink Stork, a women-owned and run wellness, beauty, and fashion company; and Becca Berg, co-founder and CEO of Dubsado, a business management solution for small business owners.
Participants should expect workshops with industry-leading experts; inspiring panels of spouses who have found success in life and their careers; a chance to participate in a pitch competition; and digital swag with discounts and freebie codes to products and services.
Jefferson said that the hands-on workshops will include topics such as project management, innovation, ways to generate revenue online and branding.
AMSE Alliance and WISE Advise have joined together to launch this summit, Jefferson said.
“One of the biggest goals for the AMSE Alliance is to unite businesses and organizations in helping military spouses start, scale, and maintain their businesses,” she said. “The organization’s goal is to raise funds to help military spouses start their businesses.”
