Episode 58 - A single mum's story of courage

In this episode of the Single Mother Survival Guide Podcast, I chat with single mum Rosemary. It’s an incredible story of courage.

We talk about Rosemary’s story of becoming a single mum – the hurdles that she crossed in deciding to end the relationship, and how she came to the decision that leaving was the best option for her and her daughter. We also talk about how she found her feet and redefined herself and her expectations of future relationships, what the whole experience taught her daughter and teaching her daughter to make decisions that empower her through role modeling those actions herself, the stigma that it’s better for kids if their parents are together, and the benefits and challenges she has come across in becoming a single parent.

This is a really amazing and insightful discussion and one of my favourite conversations to date.

Episode 049 - Raising a child as a single mum with no involvement from the child's father, with Leanne Mulcahy

In this episode of the Single Mother Survival Guide Podcast, Julia talks with Leanne Mulcahy.

Leanne also works with women to design a clear vision and plan that helps them overcome mindset blocks that keep them stuck, boost their confidence so they can stop worrying and doubting themselves and feel good about taking deliberate and inspired action.

Her online radio show, Stand Out Radio, is where women from around the world share inspirational stories, wisdom and answer the burning question “what does it mean to live life on your own terms”.

In this episode of the Single Mother Survival Guide Podcast, Leanne tells us about her own journey of becoming a single mum, and what it was like being such a young single mum and how she coped. She also discusses the benefits she encountered in being a single mum, and what it has taught her daughter.

Episode 041 - Lauren Cohen, an unexpected single mother

In this episode of the Single Mother Survival Guide Podcast, Julia talks with Lauren Cohen.  Lauren shares her own personal story of becoming a single mum and tells Julia about starting her business. She also provides advice for single working mums, how to find the silver lining when at rock bottom, her advice for new single mums, and LOTS MORE!

Lauren is a South Florida Immigration Law Expert and attorney licensed in both the U.S. and Canada. Lauren faced some challenges her first few years of living and working in America and in pursuing her own immigration journey. She was limited in her ability to work in her chosen field due to licensure issues and struggled to make ends meet, but eventually all of her hard work paid off and she built a new career for herself. After spending several years working as corporate counsel in various industries while dabbling in the field of immigration law, at age 40 Lauren decided to combine her legal knowledge and business acumen and over the next few years built her own now thriving business –  e-Council Inc., which is a company offering concierge turnkey business immigration services ranging from professional Business Plans to comprehensive project coordination for all types of US business immigration visas. And at 43 years old she had a baby on her own – although it was not a conscious choice to have her precious son alone. She’s also in the process of setting up Find My Silver Lining – a non-profit established to inspire single working parents, especially mompreneurs, to work through tough times to find their Silver Lining and to live fulfilling lives.

Episode 024 - Knowing when it's time to move on

Making the decision to end a relationship is never easy. There is a feeling of hope that you hang on to, which makes it hard to bite the bullet and end a bad relationship once and for all. If you have children, this decision is even harder. It’s probably the hardest decision you’ll ever make in your life, because you want to make sure you’re making the best decision for you and your kids. And no one dreams of being a single mum.

It can feel like a selfish decision, because you may think it’s better for the kids to have two parents who are together. But this is very wrong. Children suffer if they are living in an unhealthy or toxic environment. Your children will thrive and be happy, if you are. Sure it’s a long road to getting your life back on track, and adjusting to the changes, but everyone will survive and get back on their feet.

Of course only you can know if it’s time to end the relationship, but in this episode of the Single Mother Survival Guide Podcast, Julia discusses 5 types of red flags you should be aware of when considering ending your relationship.

Episode 018 - Relaunching your sex life as a single mother, with Jacqueline Hellyer

In this episode of the Single Mother Survival Guide Podcast, Julia talks with Jacqueline Hellyer from LOVELIFE. Jacqueline is a sex therapist, relationship coach, sex educator, tantra teacher, speaker, media expert, author and blogger….pretty much an all-around sex GURU. She’s been featured in magazines such as Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Cosmopolitan, Cleo, Girlfriend, and Marie Claire, and on radio and television programs including Mix 106.5, Today, Sunrise, and 60 minutes. And she also has her own radio show and podcast, The Tantric Lounge.

On the show we talk about relaunching your sex life as a single mother – how to overcome your fears of getting yourself back out there (if it’s a been a while), being intimate with a new person (if you’ve been with the same person for a long time), how to NOT separate being a mum from being a sexual woman, overcoming body image issues you may have, and all the other sex questions you want to know as a single mother.

Episode 017 - How to set goals and not allow yourself to have a victim mentality, with Turia Pitt

In this episode of the Single Mother Survival Guide Podcast, Julia chats with the very inspirational Turia Pitt. Turia is not a single mother, nor a mother (yet), but she is someone who has been through a very traumatic experience and has turned her life around for the better.

In 2011, Turia was caught in a grass fire whilst running an ultra marathon and consequently suffered burns to 65% of her body. She survived against all odds, and since going through her recovery she has absolutely thrived in so many areas. She’s a humanitarian, a motivationalist, a speaker, an author, a blogger, an athlete, a recent IRONMAN, the NSW Premier’s Woman of the Year and a recent finalist for young Australian of the year.

In this episode we talk about how to not allow yourself to be a victim of life and how to keep yourself going in the tough times. A lot of this includes goal setting, which Turia teaches in her new online course, Turia’s School of Champions. Turia also shares her favorite top tips for goal setting with us in this episode.

Turia also talks about her own relationship, and the positive things she has learnt from her parents.
