Virtual and Remote Careers for Active Duty Military Spouses
150. Fed Up with Low Milspouse Pay
Show Notes | October 25, 2022 | Episode 150 You know what boils our blood? Military spouses not getting paid what they are worth. Highly educated and qualified people are going from making $100,000 a year to no more than $70,000 when they become a military spouse. What?! That's crazy and unfair.  Career-driven milspouses should not have to take a pay cut because they are working remotely or will PCS with their service member every few years. It is wrong to put a cap on military spouse pay because of the sacrifices they must make as a military family.  In this special joint episode, VirtForce and Spouse-ly, the e-commerce platform that offers quality products and services from military and first-responder families, are changing the narrative about military spouse pay.  Tune in to learn how you can stack your revenue streams by finding a remote role through VirtForce and selling your goods or services as a vendor on Spouse-ly.  Links and Resources Kimber Hill LinkedIn Monica Fullerton LinkedIn Kirsten Shrewsberry LinkedIn In this episode, we mentioned the following resources: VirtForce Recruitment Arsenal Love and Lettering by Katie Strawberry Designs Join the Conversation Our favorite part of recording a live podcast each week is participating in the great conversations that happen on our live chat, on social media, and in our comments section.   VirtForce on Facebook VirtForce on LinkedIn VirtForce on Instagram Check Out Recent Podcast Episodes: VirtForce Podcast on Apple Podcasts  VirtForce Podcast on Spotify VirtForce Linktree

148. When to be an Independent Contractor vs. Employee
Show Notes | October 10, 2022 | Episode 148 When looking for remote work on the VirtForce Recruitment Arsenal there are two types of employment status - employee or independent contractor. What's the difference?  We have VirtForce's own attorney breaking down the pros and cons of both, so you can figure out which employment classification works best for the kind of remote work you are looking for.  It comes down to more freedom or more support. Independent contractors have the flexibility to set their own schedules and choose their own equipment, but they must have the discipline to save for retirement and do their own taxes. For employees, those things are taken care of by the company. Tune in to find out how you can get #hired as an employee or work as an independent contractor.  00:00 🚀 Intro Links and Resources Kimber Hill LinkedIn Peter Spanos LinkedIn In this episode, we mentioned the following resources: VirtForce Recruitment Arsenal Join the Conversation Our favorite part of recording a live podcast each week is participating in the great conversations that happen on our live chat, on social media, and in our comments section.   VirtForce on Facebook VirtForce on LinkedIn VirtForce on Instagram Check Out Recent Podcast Episodes: VirtForce Podcast on Apple Podcasts  VirtForce Podcast on Spotify VirtForce Linktree
