The Kickass Single Mom: Be Financially Independent, Discover Your Sexiest You and Raise Fabulous, Happy Children by Emma Johnson is a must-read book for newly-divorced moms unsure of what to do next with their finances, career, and relationships with your ex-spouse and children.
Creator of wealthysinglemommy.com, Emma Johnson uses her experience going through a divorce with children and starting her own business, to encourage newly or soon-to-be divorced moms how to navigate finances on a single budget and obtain financial independence. She also helps to dismiss “mom-guilt” for those moms returning to work either out of necessity, desire, or both.
Not only does this book cover finances, but it is also extremely practical advice on the dos and don’ts of co-parenting and dating again with kids.
l’d definitely recommend this to any newly single mom. This book can give you some great ideas to move forward and not be afraid. It lays out a plan to get you started, to help you feel confident and have power to move on and be strong. The financial, emotional, and sound career advice is relatable, encouraging, useful, and even inspiring at times. If you are feeling nervous about your finances and unsure about what to do next during this difficult time – this book is definitely for you!

(On a side note: If you are not going through a divorce, but are trying to balance finances on a single budget (even if it is not your own), this book has plenty of useful information as well. I found the chapters on reducing debt and starting your own business very motivating and applicable.)
