  1. My name is Anne Baumgartel and I am an Independent Representative with Momentis. Momentis provides business opportunities in the energy industry. The company wants to give back to the men and women of our military both current and former by providing the business opportunity at no start up cost to them. This is an excellent opportunity for spouses as well because it can be done anywhere across the country as well as in the UK and Canada. So, it is something that they can do as they move around with their military family members. I want to find out how I can reach all of these service members, active, wounded, retired, etc. that want to earn a second income, a better retirement and eventually financial freedom. Please contact me at 540-220-2343 to tell me how I can become involved with your agency so that I can help military members and spouses. Thank you so much. Anne Baumgartel

  2. Military Spouses Virtual Career Fair is no longer active. In a search for link for military spouse employment, I was looking through the jobs link on the page and noticed they state that as of 1/1/13 they will no longer be hosting the Veterans Career Fair. Also, that “captcha” code to submit an email isn’t working for me. I didn’t want to leave this comment here, but I did want to alert you to the problem. (I’m on a Mac, using Chrome, but that shouldn’t matter.)

    1. Hi Aviva,

  3. I do trust that is the most appropriate place to send this sort of problem. I have got a several tasks that I need reconditioned around the house. I am in search of a person with a wide range of expertise such as correcting residential plumbing, to electric work and cabinetry. Because of the fact my husband and my federal taxes cash just came in I can definitely get these tasks dealt with. At this time practically all I want is to find a respected handy-man. I found this business labelled Fix It Unlimited. They have two addresses, Fix It Unlimited of Phoenix, 2942 N 24th St #114, Phoenix, AZ 85016, (602) 714-8724 and Fix It Unlimited of Glendale, AZ, 10960 N 67th Ave #62, Glendale, AZ 85304, (623) 455-5635. Have you or somebody come across these guys? Any information would be highly valued.
