Welcome to Business Mama Going Solo!

business mama going solo

Hiya, it’s Emily M Morgan here. A couple of years ago I ran a mummy blog called Mama Going Solo (sadly now long gone and no longer visible online). Work and life got in the way of that blog’s continued existence but now I feel it’s time to bring it back – with a slightly different take on life, but otherwise much the same! And so Business Mama Going Solo is born!

This blog will have information about my world as a single parent by choice, living in a multi-generational house, and running a business from home. We’ll also feature some awesome book and product reviews and even meet some superb mummy and daddy bloggers from around the world.

I’m also looking forward to linking up to #IBOT on Tuesdays. Make sure you check out the other amazing bloggers who share their content on this link up – there’s so much to discover!

I can’t wait to share my life and work with you once again and I look forward to hearing about yours in return. 🙂
