I’ve got news, awesome readers!
In January I’ll be hosting a new podcast called, Single Moms with Moxie.
The reason why I’m starting this podcast is because I truly believe that the saddest thing in the world is forgotten potential. Why? Because I’ve lived it.
Sure. You may know me as a humor blogger and author now, but this wasn’t always my life.
When my kids were little and I was a young, single mom, I somehow got in the vibe of survival mode. Money and time were always an issue for me. I struggled with paying the bills, while juggling a constant exhaustion. And the laundry… Don’t even get me started.
I remember feeling very alone and thinking, “Is this it? Is this my life? How did I even get here?”
The Single Moms with Moxie podcast will be a reminder that NO. Even though you’re a single mom, this is not it. And guess what? You’re not alone! Just because I fell down the rabbit hole of forgetting who I was, doesn’t mean you have to. In fact, this podcast will be all about reminding you that we’re individuals with dreams, goals, and aspirations of our own. It will be about sharing our stories and celebrating our strengths.
Beginning in January, you can expect new episodes every week, where we’ll talk about what’s on your mind as you navigate this journey of single motherhood. I’ll also be bringing on guests – other single moms to share their stories, solo parenting experts, life coaches for insights into some neat life hacks, and even single dads for their perspective.
And, yes. There will be lots of laughing.
It takes moxie to remember who you are, especially when you’re the sole provider or caregiver.
So, keep an eye out this January when Single Moms with Moxie launches!
Meanwhile, I’ve started a Facebook group with the same name. Why? Because single moms need a safe place to share, network, and complain about the laundry.

Mona, you constantly amaze me! Best of luck in this new venture. You’ll rock it!
Congratulations! It’s so important for the stories of all women to be told and the single mom is a superhero that is often overlooked.

You are so right! Single moms are overlooked. We need to change that 🙂
Back in the day, my mother could have used your help…single, working at home, all of her friends married and often playing bridge or going to the country club for lunch….my mother was totally awesome. And you are too. Wishing you the best with this, Beth

Thank you, Beth! I’ve lived it and my goal is to help inspire and support other single moms with a community. Like your mom, I felt very alone when my kids were little.
