“I had been working in the single-mom space through my blog and podcast, and speaking and media engagements, for more than five years. I was raised by a single mom, I became a single mom, and I had a lot of initial shame around being a single mom. And, you know what? It happens to suit me really well. And I found myself relaxing into this time that Iâ€™m in and finding all these womenâ€”thereâ€™s ten million single moms in our country, millions worldwide, and these women have nothing to be ashamed about. Iâ€™m meeting incredible women every day that are doing incredible thingsâ€”in business, in their communities, with their familiesâ€”and I wanted to reach out to them. And I wanted to inspire the women that arenâ€™t quite there yet.”

“My book is about adolescentsâ€”how they age, how they grow, and how they make decisions. Why do they do what seem like the most insane things at times? I wrote my book because Iâ€™ve always been really interested in the teenage years, and not only teens, but adolescence, that period of time from about 10,11,12 until about 25, 26,27, when we actually start to not only become, but act, like adults. Those years so many things change and we all remember those years in in our own lives so acutely, so intensely, just like it was yesterday. Well, it turns out there are a bunch of reasons why that is the case and we set a path for ourselves during those years that really forecasts our futureâ€¦so much inevitably changes and predicts who we will become and how we will get there. And that is something that has fascinated me my entire life.”
