Healthy Families RetreatHere's an event for your military family that you may want to check out. The Virginia Wounded Warrior Program is inviting military familieas and veteran families to the Healthy Families Retreat this April 26 thru 28. This is a great opportunity for families to learn and play together while gaining skills to help foster resilience.

Conclusion: Sunday 12pm

Location: "Westview on the James" Camp

Sacrifices inherent in serving our nation such as deployments, and recovery from physical and invisible wounds take a toll on warriors, spouses, and children. This weekend event will help parents and children build communication, conflict resolution, and coping skills to foster resilience among military and veteran families.

Nestled in Goochland Virginia, Westview on the James offers a rustic setting to learn and play! Parents and school-age children will participate in both separate skills-building workshops and family activities that promote bonding and togetherness.

Open to all military and veteran families coping with the impact of deployment, military service, post-traumatic stress, operational stress and traumatic brain injury. ** Note this event is most appropriate for school age children who can function within a group environment both with and without their parents present.

Accommodations:
Rustic cabin lodging is available but limited so REGISTER soon!
Meals and recreational activities are also included for registered families.

The event is FREE, but registration is required. Please contact Sophia Reed at 804.819.4221 or email your contact information to: reeds[at]rbha.org.

Nurturing the Money Tree: Owning a Small Business- Part 2

DirectionDivaLogo.jpgIn 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.
