Here’s What Happened the Week of July 10, 2017
July is rolling right along and so it the MILLIE team. We shared another inspiring #IamMILLIE story, gave our audience a BIG reason why they should hire a Scout and joined Susan Reynolds on Spouse Spouts to talk about PCS’ing!
We’ve included links (for easy sharing), the copy for the posts (in case you’ve already used up all your creative juices today), the hashtags (for optimal millennial reach) and the MILLIE logos and branding information (in case you want to feature us on your front page or something).
If you’re one of our partners, please send us what’s been happening in your world lately by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
