Since becoming a Single Mum in 2012 I have worked part-time, I have worked full-time, I have worked freelance and I have sustained my own business, I have been threatened with sanctions and set-upon by bailiffs, sent by the very people I spent 20 years to be there for me in my darkest hour, as a result of their calculation errors. I have made mistakes, and I have learned lessons. And I am not going to sit by and watch millions of women (and men) struggle, without doing my little bit to point out where there are some issues that needn’t be there.
Let me start with saying – you are welcome – just one very simple rule – you make it clear if you are looking grow your team, or if you are just selling the products for an extra income, there is a significant difference. You also need to be clear from the offset what MLM company you represent and what products they sell.
Being a single mum on benefits is not a crime, it is a small moment where you nurture your child in between a lifetime of contributions. The shame must end now.
