It takes a lot of courage to live as a military spouse, which is perhaps why so many military spouses make successful entrepreneurs. No matter how good a business idea is, entrepreneurs still have to summon the courage to put themselves ‘out there’ and give it their best shot.

Katie Prill took that leap of faith and added entrepreneur to the list of roles she already fills. She is a military spouse, a mother to two boys, a registered nurse, and one of the country's newest entrepreneurs. As the owner of ‘Love and Lettering by Katie’ on the Spouse-ly platform, she offers a wide variety of home decor, stickers, clothing, seasonal gifts and decorations – including custom orders.

In this episode of Veteran Voices, produced in partnership with Vets2Industry and sponsored by Buyers Meeting Point, co-hosts Monica Fullerton, Founder and CEO of Spouse-ly, and Scott Luton speak with Katie about:

• The challenges of being a military spouse working in a licensed field like nursing or teaching, and the administrative overhead that has to be started over following each move

• How (and why) people should find the strength to overcome their fears of starting a new business

• Why taking care of yourself – finding time for breaks – may be the most important part of any entrepreneur’s ‘hustle’
