In FNPhenomenal MOM, Phenomenal Living

FNPhenomenal Mom is a series that I am doing to highlight Single Moms who are amazing moms and who are also rocking it out personally in their careers, entrepreneurship, or in the community.  I think that it is important to show other single moms that it is possible to raise amazing children without sacrificing who you are as a woman.  These interviews are motivational, but also include practical advice on how to structure your life for success, financial management tips, and techniques to teach your children about finances.  We are all in this journey together.  My hope is to highlight other…
