HOW TO BE YOUR OWN BOSS AS A SIN­GLE MUM BY ALI GOLDS

Lift Magazine - - Book Reviews -

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS BOOK?

There aren’t a lot or re­source made specif­i­cally for sin­gle mums by sin­gle mums. When you delve into find­ing books or cour­ses or men­tors that spe­cialise in sin­gle moth­er­hood, it can be like stand­ing in a field of crick­ets. With one in five mar­riages end­ing in di­vorce to­day, it’s great to find a book that spe­cialises in the unique chal­lenges that be­ing a sin­gle mum brings.

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

It’s a com­bi­na­tion of Ali’s per­sonal ac­count of set­ting up a busi­ness as a solo mum as well as a ‘how to’ guide to get started your­self.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO READ?

I de­voured it in a couple of hours.

WOULD YOU REC­OM­MEND IT?

Definitely. Even if you’re not sure you want to start your own busi­ness or have no plans of ever start­ing your own busi­ness, it’s a great per­spec­tive of what life is like as a sin­gle work­ing mum. Ali also in­cludes case stud­ies from other sin­gle mums and from their chil­dren about what it was like grow­ing up with a sin­gle work­ing mum. I read the whole book want­ing to both hug and high five the au­thor for shar­ing her story and ex­per­tise.
