You clicked here because you’re wondering what this is all about. I mean, really? A site that actual celebrates the strengths of single mothers instead of making them feel like they’ve some how failed?
Look. I totally get it. I’ve been a single parent longer than some of you have probably been alive. I’m good at it and that’s okay. In fact, it’s more than okay. There are tons of reasons that being a single parent is a pretty good gig. Except for the potential poverty, existing on one pay check while trying to pay for all of the extra curricular activities that all your married friends insist that kids need starting at the age of 2 just to get in to a good college. Which you also have no idea how to pay for.
Here’s the thing. You can have balance and you can have an abundant life. You can have more time with your actual family instead of checking them out on Facebook and earn a living at the same time. True story. This website is for you and we want to build an entire community of single moms who are committed to having more balance and freedom in their lives while growing their businesses.
UPCOMING PROJECTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
There are tons of sites out there to help women start and grow online businesses and lots of them are simply amazing. I wouldn’t be here without learning from others. But this site is a bit different in that I wanted to create a collective rather than me just telling you how to do stuff and bragging on how I figured out how to adult and make money to feed my family on the internet.
Here are some of the opportunities and projects I’ll be adding over the next few months to help all of you grow healthy businesses and happy families.:
SUCCESS STORIES AND CASE STUDIES-
Everyone needs a boost and when women succeed we want to help them, right? This will be an area to share success stories from single moms that are kicking it in business or even just starting out and have a great idea that needs plugging. These features will help you gain a presence online and create traffic for your site as well as helping your create SEO friendly back links that help your site rank higher in Google. As for the rest of us? We get a boost seeing other single moms succeeding and showing us what’s possible. Win-win.
If you have an idea for a story or want to guest post, contact me! I love featuring smart, sassy single moms with great ideas and good writing. Areas we’re looking for at the moment are single parenting stories or tips, dating (ugh), how you’ve managed to have a good relationship with your ex (so hard), and business ideas you’ve tried, as well as social media marketing tips and tools. Also, if you’ve created something you’d like to share on our Freebie Resources board, we’d love to hear from you.
As our site grows, I’ll be adding a job board to feature all of our rock star talent. Sometimes you can’t do everything you need to get your business off the ground or you’ve grown and it’s time to hire help. You can post a job here and help out a fellow single mom. Maybe website building isn’t for you and you want help with your own site. Bring on the web developers and designers. If you’ve got a skill to sell, like photography, writing, copy writing or you’re a social media whiz, post your ad here and work for another single mom in business.
PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP
Let’s hang out together online! I’ll be popping in with posting ideas, tips, tricks, and asking all of you what you need to grow, learn, and earn. Your answers will help me create the content you need as well as getting support from me and one another. By invitation only when you sign up for our email list. All the fun with none of the drama. #nodramallamasallowed
VIP MEMBERS CLUB
For now, I’ll continue to work directly with a few select clients per month but I intend to scale that back eventually because working on a major site like this is going to take more hours than I have in a day. I’ve been considering a VIP MEMBERS CLUB where you have access to all the direct coaching I normally give to one on one clients. This one is still on the back burner until I can find a way to ensure value for the service and develop the extras and content. I know paid membership sites can be controversial but I will tell you this. Every time I’ve paid for content, whether it be a paid course or joining a membership site (I belong to 3!) I’ve gotten so much more out of it than if I had just tried to find information and read articles in different place on my own. It’s like having a private coach right at your finger tips and the benefits in growing my business have been huge.
