Publisher's Summary

When Emma Johnson's marriage ended, she found herself broke, pregnant, and alone with a toddler. Searching for the advice she needed to navigate her new life as a single professional woman and parent, she discovered there was very little sage wisdom available. In response, Johnson launched the popular blog Wealthysinglemommy.com to speak to other women who, like herself, wanted to not just survive but thrive as single moms. Now, in this complete guide to single motherhood, Johnson guides women in confronting the naysayers in their lives (and in their own minds) to build a thriving career, achieve financial security, and reignite their romantic life - all while being a kickass parent to their kids. The Kickass Single Mom shows listeners how to:

  • Build a new life that is entirely on their own terms.
  • Find the time to devote to health, hobbies, friendships, faith, community, and travel.
  • Be a joyful, present, and fun mom and proud role model to your kids.

Full of practical advice and inspiration from Emma's life as well as other successful single moms, this is a must-have resource for any single mom.

Mehh

There is definitely some solid, applicable information, though there is a noted overshadowing liberal standpoint.

Loved!

This book is full of so many great points one experiences as a single mom! Having been divorced for almost 7 years, I wish I'd had it sooner, but Emma's advice is solid and useful!!

This book is life! A positive road map for women

I adore this book and wish that it was written 10 years ago. It addresses and reframes every misguided belief that society and myself have regarding single mom.

It teaches on Mommy guilt, working, taking care of ourselves beyond shopping and lattes and dating. I love this book. My family has continued to tell me to stay small, don't date and wait for the kids to leave to have a life and this book creates a new roadmap of possibilities. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Disagree entirely

I completely disagree with her position on child support. In the name of empowering single mums she’s enabling dads to be irresponsible and get away with it. This contradicts her feminism on why should women still do most of the housework.

It’s all too easy for her to say women should share 50% of parenting responsibilities, without even considering that those very high percentages of dads who don’t see their kids might in fact be really terrible parents.

The performer slurs her words as if she were drunk all the time.

I thoroughly disliked this book.

Truly Kick Ass!!

I have one phrase to describe Emma's book... GAME CHANGER! From the introduction, I was intrigued with everything Emma had to say solely because the title of the book has the best shock effect! As a Single Mom, I have been taught since I was a kid that single mothers are the blite of society, the women that were unlucky, unfortunate, uneducated, unloveable, unacceptable to marry.

Emma debunks and challenges each and every oppressive stereotype that has been applied to the umbrella term 'Single Mother'. Thank you for your uncanny, witty, and empowering knowledge! You have inspired me to continue on the path of learning to be a "Kick-Ass Momma" who works for herself earning a lucrative income, loves raising her children to be awesome people, love myself in and out my singleness, bless all that I encounter, and enjoy my life!

Inspiringly Modern Advice

Have joined the Facebook page, the podcast and now listened to Emma’s kickass book. 5 years on since I became a single mum and lots I agree with and adhere to. New Man now in my life but lots of advice resonate with me - be your own woman, be financially independent and if you do eventually meet a man again enjoy the pleasures..
