Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (April 1, 2015) – Home-based business opportunity Cruises Inc.® recognizes the employment challenges military spouses face and has launched “Operation: Unsung Heroes,” a unique contest where military spouses can win a virtual work-from-home business in the exciting travel industry selling dream vacations. The contest begins on Wednesday, April 1 and ends on Thursday, April 30, with the winners being announced on Military Spouse Appreciation Day on May 8.
“Military spouses are truly unsung heroes and deserve recognition for all they do for their families and the sacrifices they have made,” said Tim Courtney, vice president of network development and ambassador of veteran affairs for Cruises Inc. “With approximately 15 percent of our Cruises Inc. vacation specialists being military veterans and spouses, we see their potential for success and are committed to providing business opportunities.”
According to the 2014 Military Lifestyle Survey conducted by the non-profit Blue Star Families, a military family engagement organization and support network, 84 percent of those surveyed believed the military had negative impact on ability to pursue a career. In the same survey, 57 percent of the spouses were not employed and more than half of them wanted to be.
“Being affiliated with a home-based business opportunity such as Cruises Inc. allows military spouses to do their job from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. It also opens the door for those spouses that don’t have the time for a full-time job but still want to earn extra income,” added Courtney. “Many of our military spouses use their extensive travel experiences and connections made from moving around the country to create a strong business foundation.”
The Cruises Inc. contest is open to current or former military spouses who are at least 18 years old by the contest start date, Wednesday, April 1, 2015. To learn more about being a work-from-home vacation specialist and to enter the contest, please email name and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org and a Cruises Inc. business opportunity specialist will educate those interested about the company and the exciting opportunity to become a Cruises Inc. vacation specialist. Eligible candidates are required to submit a 300-500 word essay that explains why a home-based business as a vacation specialist with Cruises Inc. is a great opportunity for the military spouse and their family, and how their passion for travel will result in a successful business.
Five grand prize winners will be announced on Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Friday May 8. Each winner will receive a Cruises Inc. home-based business opportunity, which includes a waived $249 initial start-up fee and virtual training that teaches how to run a successful business.
