Podcast Episode 21: Wealthy Single Moms

Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 21 of The New Family Podcast!

For this episode, I chat with business journalist and mom of two Emma Johnson. Emma is the host of a podcast called Like a Mother with Emma Johnson, and she’s also the woman behind the popular website Wealthy Single Mommy. Is Wealthy Single Mommy a contradiction in terms? Hell no! Emma explains how she overcame the initial hangups she had when her marriage ended—that becoming a single mother meant being a welfare mom who would always struggle financially and in life in general. When she launched her blog geared to other professional single moms, the response was incredible. The number one challenge Emma’s readers share with her is fear about running into financial problems. So Emma has recently launched an online course called “How Not to be a Broke Single Mom,” as well as a dynamic Facebook group called “Single Mom Society.” Emma’s message is empowering and inspiring to all moms, regardless of their circumstances.

Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Emma.
