I started Boss Single Mama to share what I’ve learned about making money from home and gaining financial freedom for my family!

In the summer of 2014, I was a newly single mom with two kids to take care of and no job. But I did have a small freelance writing side hustle and a desire to continue staying home with my kids full-time.

So I decided to dig deep and work on turning my little side hustle into an online business. And along the way, I’ve learned how to manage my money like a boss!

Here are just a few things I’ve been able to achieve:

✔ Paying off all of my non-mortgage debt (nearly $100,000 worth!)

✔ Buying a home as a single mom (twice!)

✔ Growing my income to multiple six figures a year (from home!)

✔ Achieving financial freedom!

Great question!

And whether you’re a single mom or not or a mom at all, you might be facing a similar challenge where money is concerned.

So my goal is to deliver actionable, practical tips and advice that you can use to make money and save big!
