We’re highlighting a few new businesses we recently discovered and love.  Many of us are entrepreneurs and we want to know how these businesses got their start and why customers love them.  Maybe you can find some inspiration and tips for your own business.

Sseko Designs: We met the founder of Sseko, Ben, at an INC conference and he’s doing amazing things. He has a brilliant shoe which allows people to simply switch the ribbons out for a new color and look.  We talked to Ben about making a Marine Corps Ribbon and providing a portion of the proceeds to the Semper Fi Fund and he agreed!  We can’t wait to show you the finished product.

Molly’s Suds: We were given a package of all natural laundry detergent and Abbey is going to offer her opinions on the product. We’re also going to ask Monica Leonard, the founder of Molly’s Suds, how she followed her dreams of starting a business which is good for the environment and also her family.

Commissary Closures: This week starts the beginning of the commissary closures on Monday.  If your Commissary is normally closed on Monday, then they will now be closed Monday and Tuesday.

Join us as we discuss Dogs on Deployment with Alisa Johnson and how they help foster pets for our service members when they are sent on deployments or out of the country.  You can “like” their Facebook page, or sign the Change.org pledge to require bases to change their policies to standardize breed policies on base.

Next we interview Stephen Peters, President of the American Military Partner Association on the repeal of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and how it is impacting gay and lesbian servicemembers lives and what we can expect in the future.  We also discuss life as a gay Marine before Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was repealed and why familes previously denied these benefits deserve them. You can connect with them on Facebook as well.
