Are you a milspouse who wants to sustain their career? Audrey Fairbrother, Marketing Director of Boldy and former milspouse, understands theses questions very well and wants military spouses to be BOLD and bring work-life balance into your life by working remotely.
“Everyone can benefit from remote work. It just allows for a better work-life balance. It gives you that extra time with your family. Everyone has important priorities going on, so I think remote work helps even all out,” said Audrey.

If you haven’t heard of Boldy, they are a 100% remote premium business staffing company that provides executives a highly-skilled remote staff to help represent their business and carry out responsible tasks.
Boldly currently provides its clients with a staff of executive assistants, marketing/social media experts, project managers, accountants, and paralegals. Boldly is also made up of several military spouses. They have a dedicated milspouse page!
“Military spouses make some of our best candidates. They are naturally adaptable, which is great for this type of position with different clients and industries. They are resourceful and independent. Military spouses have amazing soft skills, “ said Audrey.
If you have over 7 years of experience as an executive assistant, marketing/social media experts, project managers, accountants, or paralegals – Boldy is looking for you. If you don’t have the required 7 years of experience, don’t get discouraged.
Audrey recommends spouses to play up their experiences such as volunteer work, internships, part-time jobs, and side hustles. These experiences cumulatively add up and you are developing soft skills and it is relative to include. Anything that has brought you professional experience.”
