For those of you that have followed my page for any amount of time, you know that I’ve worked in an adolescent drug treatment agency, where daily we help men process, confront, and move forward from pieces of their story that have kept them stuck and have fueled their use and abuse of substances to help numb that pain.
But there is another group that has sat in this chair that I have been quiet about. This group has been one of the catalysts and driving forces in the development of Single Mama Success, in ministry, and as a business coach.
That group is the moms of the boys in our programmany of whom are single moms. One after one, they’ve sat in this chair - yelling, crying, and grappling with sons that have gotten caught up. But one of the greatest recurring themes of discussion is that they have to work two and sometimes three jobs so they can provide for their households, leaving them with the choice of being home engaging with and supervising their OR providing for their .
I hear stories every day of missed games and meetings due to long work hours at little pay. I hear others concerned that their sons are in the streets while they’re not home. And others share how they want to be home more. •
THIS is why I started Single Mama Success. This is why I got involved in one of those at home businesses (yup, the one that you told others you couldn’t believe I got “suckered into”, the one you said I couldn’t make money in, the one you said isn’t a legit business cause it doesn’t look like your job). Also the same one that is allowing me to be debt free, save, invest, and be generous without a second thought.
It’s cool thocause EVERY SINGLE DAY we are helping other single mamas and other individuals to succeed who society has determined need to stay on the socio-economic class they’re in. Teaching principles of business that they can take and diversify to other streams of income in the future. Teaching leadership skills that most 9-5’s don’t teach. And allowing “charity cases” to become the charitable onesgiving generously, no longer pinching pennies. •
