Support Moms on Small Business Saturday

Posted November 25, 2015 by Elyssa Koidin

Once the turkey has been carved and we are all recovering from pumpkin pie comas, hectic travel, and quality time with the family, the so-called season of giving begins.

Posted November 25, 2015 by To-wen Tseng

Thanksgiving is around the corner. Today my two-and-half-year-old came home from his day care with a thankful turkey. Thankful turkey, you know, the classic construction paper turkey lists what children are thankful for. We had this conversation.  “Mama, look at my turkey!” “Wow!

Working Mom and #MilSpouse Speaks Out for Tax Credits For Families

Posted November 11, 2015 by Rosalynda Thorn

Working moms are never off the clock. Our working days are bookended by packing kids’ lunches in the morning and reading bedtime stories at night. We put in a lot more than a full day’s work and every dollar we work for is hard earned. This is even more true for military families like mine. [...]
