I am really pleased to be able to welcome Esther, from ‘Be here write now’ back to the SMBN!

Esther Nagle is a copywriter from South Wales, She helps ADHD and addiction coaches to attract their dream clients through engaging blogs, articles & web copy. Esther has been blogging for a decade, and has published hundreds of blog posts on her own and other people’s websites, and a book charting her own recovery from addiction. She has been sober since 2014, and was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 45. She knows how important it is that people with addiction and ADHD have good, compassionate support. Esther is the single mother to 3 sons, one of whom is allegedly 30 this year (although she is adamant she isn’t old enough to have a 30year old son!). She is an extroverted, tattooed, sweary, rock chick Yoga teaching, nature loving bundle of contradictions, with a zest for life and adventure that a year of Covid still hasn’t managed to squash!

Welcome ‘Friend of the SMBN’, Charlotte Webb, Principle at Castle Green Financial Planning

I am delighted to officially welcome Charlotte to the SMBN as a ‘Friend’, being a friend of the SMBN means that you benefit from the exposure on-line and in print whilst supporting our quest to make work work as single parents.

Ruth and the Single Parent Rights Team are working hard to bring single parents employment experiences to politicians..

I have a lot of respect for the work Ruth does, to date alone and unfunded, to ensure that we do not face various discriminations due to our status. As I discuss barriers I realise that as a protected characteristic we would be better placed to fight for equal opportunities to home ownership, work, businessContinue reading “Ruth and the Single Parent Rights Team are working hard to bring single parents employment experiences to politicians..”

Small Business – Big Difference! In this interview with Alison Cork we discuss how she champions female entrepreneurs, is passionate about healthy living, and how she has now launched a Viral Campaign for the UK Small Business Community to Donate £1 each to support Ukraine Appeal..

2022 – The Year of the Single Parent!

2022 – The Year of the Single Parent!

I have it on good authority! Things are changing for us, we are raising awareness of, and challenging, genuine barriers that feed negative public perception. We are making it okay to be single, and a parent! We are not ashamed, we are celebrating a future where relationships are only about love, and not about necessity, we are showing our children that

I am so excited for SMBN member Sarah who has today published her book on Amazon – From MEH to Magnificent! Ways to grow through student life.

Look at this amazing woman! Welcome New Member Natasha-Dawn Ni Leighn [aka Ash] Founder of Dandelion Weatherstone: VEGAN, ANTIBACTERIAL AND FUNKY C-SECTION KNICKERS…

Look at this amazing woman! Welcome New Member Natasha-Dawn Ni Leighn [aka Ash] Founder of Dandelion Weatherstone: VEGAN, ANTIBACTERIAL AND FUNKY C-SECTION KNICKERS…
Yes we all need underwear! But we don’t always realise what challenges exist if you’ve had a c-section, are a pregnant transman or if you have had any kind of surgery that leaves you needing antibacterial high waisted knickers with soft fibres to avoid incision irritation! But just like me with the KIH Bed, Ash became aware of a gap in the market through her own experience and as a necessity entrepreneur with a ‘I can solve this problem for the masses’ attitude, embarked on her own journey of creating something for other people’s benefit, and she is infused with ethics and helping others from her eco chain to her anti slavery and vegan checking measures.. what a very cool lady she is! Here’s a few words from our newest member Ash…

Wow – my mind is blown! Welcome New Member Donna Easton – Joyologist and Founder of LifeShine! You have to see her website…

Ever since setting up the SMBN I have been like a broken record talking about the amazing women out there doing this solo, and changing public stereotyping is an ongoing effort. I am blown away every time I meet yet another incredible woman, and then another one pops up! I just knew they were out there. I have a queue now of women to introduce who have joined lately, but one at a time – as they deserve exclusive PR and recognition! Meet Donna Easton – Donna is a Joyologist, a laugher, a performer, a people connector, a mindset coach, Founder of ‘LifeShine’, ‘WellMeOke’ (wellness cabaret show) and ‘The Selling with Heart Academy’. there is not much I can say except wow – just take a look at her website and see for yourself! @mylifeshines
