The Milspo® Business Network is all about connecting the community, no matter where we are posted so that we can all be inspired by each other’s successes.
Leading the charge of the network are the Milspo® Ambassadors, business leaders who are experienced in military life and are partnered to serving or retired military personnel. The Ambassadors are committed to supporting and enabling the growth of Milspo® owned businesses throughout the UK and abroad. They regularly give guest talks to share their expertise and have a wealth of knowledge in all fields of business. A few have been guests on the podcast series.
This team is the heart behind the Milspo® Business Network and such a kind and friendly bunch who will welcome you with open arms to the community.
We are very proud to announce that the wonderful Emma Gray has become our newest Milspo® Ambassador.
Emma Gray, is a former solicitor whose dreams were shattered when her Royal Marine husband died at the age of only 38 years old from oesophageal cancer. Although she was a legal expert in Wills, Emma’s worst nightmare came true when she had to deal with her own husband’s probate.
Despite the lonely role of being a widow and solo parent to her two bereaved children, Emma discovered what she calls “Rainbow Hunting”: looking for the smallest break in the clouds and rain to find hope and joy, even in the darkest times.
Emma set up Rainbow Hunting to help others who find themselves in similar tragic and difficult circumstances. Emma has paused law to train to be a counsellor and write a book on her experiences. Emma hopes that her website and new path will help guide others through the toughest of times, so that they can find their own rainbows and learn to dance in the rain.
Emma is on the National Board of Solicitors for the Elderly and is an Ambassador for the charity Widowed and Young (WAY), for whom she has set up a WAY Military Sub-Group.
Below Emma has written a blog on her own website that we wanted to share here.
