Military Spouse Education Foundation (MSEF)

The Military Spouse Education Foundation (MSEF) will launch in 2013 to establish a Military Service Grant for spouses who are excluded from the Department of Defense's MyCAA program.
MSEF is founded on the belief that we are one community supporting one another regarding rank, branch, status, or educational status. After 11 years of war, our Post 9/11 era spouses deserve a program that compliments the challenges of military life rather than creates more obstacles.
Four Point Plan:
- Establish a "Volunteer Experience to College Credit" program between the American Council on Education, the military service branches, and military service organizations
- "PCS College Courses Program-" Course transferability
- Equip spouses with expanded skillsets with workshops on topics such as goal setting and balance
- Launch a Military Spouse Service Grant
In Part 1 of Nurturing the Money Tree we chatted about creating income by working for someone else. But if you are like me, maybe working for someone else isn't for you, and many military spouses actually choose to own their own businesses. I know I did.
This option gives them the flexibility and control that they are looking for while building something for their future at the same time. Being a business owner has some great advantages, but if you don't know what you are getting into and you don't have a plan of action it can quickly take over your life or worse leave you in a financial pickle.
