Running a Business as a Single Parent

I have been running a successful company for nearly 10 years now, and the last few years as a single parent. It’s not easy to run a family and a business, but it is possible. That’s why episode 30 of This Green Planet is about my tips to running a business as a single parent! 

In this episode of This Green Planet, I’m sharing the importance of embracing your single parent status and actionable steps you can take right now to use it to your advantage in your business. 

I cover some of the following topics: 

  • Embrace being a single parent
  • Avoid toxic people and substances
  • Include your kids in your business
  • Give yourself breaks
  • All you need is an idea and serious drive
  • Focus on the positives
  • Find the right schedule for you

Being a single parent and an entrepreneur both allow you to develop skills that help the other and overall help yourself be more successful in these areas of your life. Accept these titles and skills and you’ll go further than you ever thought you could! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on sustainable, STEM business practices and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

Thank you for listening!
