Single Moms have a lot on their shoulders and many unique needs to be met. They need a support system, someone who understands just what they are going through. This is why I am so excited to have Aisha Taylor on the show today. Aisha is the CEO of FNPhenomenal Financial Planning, and also a single mom. Aisha is on a mission to help empower single moms with their finances, rather than feel overwhelmed and unsupported. She knows that single women have unique financial needs, so she has developed a place where they can turn for support. Aisha found herself in a similar situation when she found out she was pregnant with twins, and today she is going to share her amazing story. 

Before focusing her financial planning efforts on single moms, Aisha had a heart for helping single women manage their finances. As a woman of faith, she uses Biblical principles to help single women live within their means and take the steps needed to leave a legacy behind them. Before Aisha reached this realization, however, she had to fight some not so uncommon battles. Shame, guilt, fear, and comparison all crept into her life as she realized she would soon be a mom. Rather than let these negative feelings rule her, Aisha learned how to give herself grace and shift her mindset about her situation. 

This episode will be perfect for single moms who need encouragement and advice about what to do when the unexpected happens. Aisha is so full of grace and strength, and you will be so inspired after hearing her story.

I had to stop thinking about what was happening to me, but focus instead on what was happening for me.
