Hello! My name is Emma Johnson and my goal is to help you build a full, awesome life as a single mom.
I started Wealthysinglemommy.com when I realized a huge need for community, information and inspiration for women like me:
Professional single moms.
Immediately after launching in 2012, tens of thousands of women every month started visiting, commenting and connecting on Wealthysinglemommy.com. The media started calling. Something special was going on.
There is an unprecedented number of women parenting alone. We’re not going away. There are 16 million U.S. unmarried moms heading families, and 64 percent millennial moms have a child outside of marriage. This is an incredible moment in history that affords unpartnered women more opportunity than ever to raise amazing, healthy children while also building wildly successful businesses and careers – and enjoy dating and the pursuit of romantic love. I’m one of them. So are you. But moms like you don’t always feel like they fit in. So they come here.
This single mom business is not easy. On the tough days it is stressful, exhausting and lonely. But life as a single mom can be brilliantly fulfilling – even if you don’t stay a single mom forever (hello, dating!). I am here to help single moms like you build an amazing family, career and love life. Learn more ►
The name’s Amanda Holden, but my pals call me Mandy, Mandicakes, Manderson Pooper, A.Hol (get it? like J.Lo but…grosser??) and—you guessed it—Dumpster Dog. Ahhhh yes, ol’ Dumpster Dog, that’s me. What you’re probably not thinking is: For a young and single working gal, that is one darling nickname!!
It’s okay—I love it. The nickname took root during a eight-month stint where I didn’t buy food (see this post for the gruesome details) and it has really stuck, glued to me like day-old bean burrito guts on a Taco Bell wrapper. The easy fusion was surely thanks to my preference for Birkenstocks and half-eaten gyros over stilettos and grooming; creativity over tedium, always. This brand of scrappiness is the very essence of Dumpster Dog, and accordingly, the perfect name for my blog on money! Learn more ►

I was already overdrafted on my checking account by the time my pay was deposited, I had no savings, and worst of all, I cashed out my most important financial asset - my retirement account.
Thankfully, that was a while ago and a lot has changed. To keep me green and growing, I share stories of how I save more to explore. Learn more ►
