Hi, I’m Lucy.
I am, well … I’m a single mum. But before I move on I’d like to point out that I’m a ‘surviving perfectly ok (most days)’ single mum.
My current life involves looking after my beautiful daughters, whilst sourcing and creating resources to help single mothers. The result: a life spent alternating between kitchen, laptop, school, Skype and sport fields. Have you ever tried to conduct a business Skype call while your daughter tries desperately to tell you she has a bruise on her bottom? It’s the real-deal of the single working mum and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
It was my turbulent journey from ‘omg I’m a single mum’ to where I am today, that inspired me to create Beanstalk. I believe that while few of us aspire to be a single mum, if our path gets redirected it doesn’t mean we should give up on our dreams.
Beanstalk is a supportive, inspirational place for all single mothers from all walks of life and at any stage on their single mother journey. For women who are still grappling with their shiny new status of ‘single mum’, to those that are entirely happy with their single mum life .. and in some cases, absolutely lovin’ it.
As per it’s namesake, Beanstalk is forever growing. And it’s not just about me. It’s about all single mums, without whom this space would be a dormant seed.
I’d love you to devour my single mums blogs, take my ecourse, enter my Facebook competitions and follow me on Instagram. My latest offshoot is the Single Mum Vine private FB group where you can chat to single mums 24/7. And remember to grab your free single mum goody bag, which is my way of kinda saying thank you for your support.
And there’s so much more to come. Beanstalks tend to grow and grow. Ask Jack if you don’t believe me.
Oh and I don’t do it all alone. I have the help of my daughters, especially my young teenager who is invaluable when it comes to executive decisions, such as what filter to use on Instagram and how best to restore my phone apps when they inexplicably disappear.
I will love you and leave you. Please take what you need from the Beanstalk offering. And if you have any ideas or collaborative opportunities please email me. I am all ears to anything of benefit to the single motherhood.
