Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Samantha and I’m mom to a 17-year old daughter (Lexi) and 13-year old son (AJ). I have been solo parenting for the better part of 17 years. It’s been a mix of challenging and triumphant. but I’m pretty sure there is very little I would change. My kids saved my life because they taught me that I have an enormous capacity to love.
When my son was 6 months old I made the decision to relocate and start my life over. I was a wreck as a single mom of two kids under 5 years old, but I had dogged determination to create a life for the three of us. Over the next seven years I went from food stamps to home owner. I was in and out of an abusive marriage and on my way back to my home state of Georgia. In between all of that I got a degree, started my career, and went through unemployment. Whew! What a journey and it ain’t over yet. The fun is just beginning!
Why Rich Single Momma?
RichSingleMomma.com was born in 2008 and is where I chronicle my journey to financial freedom. I was poor and now I’m…well… financially stable and on the road to being independently wealthy. However, I can say now I am rich in love, health, and talent. The wealth will surely follow, right?
I write about personal finance, parenting, personal development, and affordable travel for single moms. I write with a touch of humor and a lot of compassion mixed with tough love.
My POP (purpose on the planet) is to encourage, inspire, and empower moms (really all women) who are hungry for happiness, abundance, and personal freedom. I do this through writing, coaching, and strategic planning.
My Belief About Single Moms
I believe with all my that heart single moms do not have to struggle endlessly with depression, poverty, and a chronic survival mentality. I am here to teach single moms they can be joyful, prosperous, and thrive! Welcome to my little spot on the Web!
