I was a military wife for over 21 years and found myself working in jobs slightly above minimum wage and moving a lot! I longed for the job where I was paid six figures – that was my goal. I reached that goal then asked myself where do I go from here? When I left government service, I was unemployed for a very long time because of the great recession. I questioned my self-worth. My book talks about what happened to me after I left government service. A job does not define us.
