What do you do when you're not sure where you'll be living a month from now? You face it head on, that's what!

Since she's already moved 6 times in the 4 years of her husband's Marine Corps career, you could say Danielle Keech is something of an expert on short-notice PCS moves!

On this episode, we talk about the perspective she's already gained as a new military spouse, military spouse employment issues and difficulties keeping a career afloat with the constant changes inherent in military life, how she got into freelance writing and content creation, and how staying organized and positive has helped her navigate so many moves--most of them DITY ("do it yourself") moves! Also that one time they had two weeks' notice to get to a new duty station and they moved themselves...

Danielle is also a new mama. You'll be encouraged by her words about choosing to be stay-at-home/work from home mom and her outlook about managing expectations as a military wife and mom. Listen in for her top tips for tackling a short-notice PCS (which will help with any move!).
