Military spouse Adrianna Domingos-Lupher is a go-getter. Despite the professional challenges that can plague military spouses, Domingos-Lupher never accepted that she (and her fellow spouses) could not achieve career success. Adrianna took her two degrees from UNC Chapel Hill and converted them into a dream career not only for herself, but for the other military spouses she would employ through her own business.
Domingos-Lupher credits the rise of social media for connecting her to the other 1.1 million military spouses across the globe and for allowing her to make the transition from freelancer to CEO. By first launching a military spouse blogging network, and then a media company, social media became a powerful platform for both connecting and kickstarting a profitable career as a freelance writer, social media consultant, content creator, and ultimately, an entrepreneur.
‘Whenever I start a new project like SpouseBox™ that’s designed specifically for military spouses, I realize what a strong group of men and women we are. There’s an understanding that if my sister can do it, I can do it, too. We’re all in this together.”
As a result of her work launching ground-breaking programs for military spouses through her companies MSB New Media™, SpouseBox™, and NextGen MilSpouse™ Adrianna Domingos-Lupher will be honored by the White House this Wednesday as an Entrepreneur Champion of Change.
The White House Champions of Change program was created by the White House in order to recognize indiviuals that go above and beyond to help and effect change in their communities. The Champins have distinguised themselves by continuing to serve our country through their successful small businesses and non-profits. These individuals create jobs and spur economical growth.
The award ceremony will be held today, August 27, and will showcase each of the honorees and highlight the importance of their work. Dr. Jill Biden will speak, as well as Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, and Robert Herjavec from ABC’s Emmy Award-winning TV show, Shark Tank.
