Today’s guest is a longtime business and personal finance journalist. Emma Johnson is the founder of Wealthy Single Mommy, a website dedicated to professional single moms where she shares advice and discusses topics like career, money, parenting and dating.  She also recently launched her own podcast, Like a Mother with Emma Johnson, which was named by U.S. News as a “Top 15 Personal Finance Podcast.”  Emma also has her own video course, How Not To Be a Broke Single Mom.

Three takeaways from our interview:

  1. How to not be a broke single mom in this country.
  2. The power of intention and how that helped Emma and many single moms achieve financial greatness.
  3. The controversy with encouraging people to earn more.

November is all about giving back at So Money®!

I’ve partnered with Joe Saul-Sehy, host of the Stacking Benjamins podcast to host a charity fundraiser/competition the entire month. He and I have each selected a personal charity and our goal is to raise tons of money with your help.
The So Money® charity is THON, a dance marathon and the largest student-run philanthropy held at Pennsylvania State University (my alma mater!) that helps raise money and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. You can donate here.
The Stacking Benjamins charity is Texas 4000, a 4,000 mile bike ride that University of Texas students take to raise money for cancer research and cancer related causes. You can donate here.
The podcast that receives the MOST money for its charity will win the chance to write the introduction to the other person’s podcast in January (buhahah!)
We’ll keep you updated throughout the month!
