Empowerment and Autonomy

Creating and maintaining balance is perhaps the most challenging struggle single parents face. We often battle with financial strain, guilt, fatigue, and social isolation. In order to create a happy life for our family, it is imperative that we create financial autonomy, empower ourselves daily. and develop self-care rituals.

Empowerment and Autonomy

When I became a single mother, I was overwhelmed! I had to learn to manage a family on one income, plan for activities, deal with uncooperative co-parents, and create a healthy environment for my children to grow. I was often frustrated and felt defeated!

Over time, I stopped relying on my co-parents in a financial sense because it was too difficult to maintain a budget with inconsistent child support payments. I realized that in order to be successful I had to:

  • Maintain my mental health to manage the guilt I was feeling about separating from my children's fathers

  • Learn to budget, maintain good credit, and make good financial decisions.

  • Create and maintain boundaries with my co-parents and their families that were beneficial to my children.

  • Develop a sense of independence so that I could govern my family.

For years, I have served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about my passions, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about our world. I founded Complicated Single Mom with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and I have been at it ever since. 

 

I've made it my personal mission to help single parents strategize their future.

Much Peace to you!

Fiscal Autonomy

Autonomy - or independence starts with empowerment and comprehension.

- Devon Keith

Not too long ago, words like "financial freedom" and "wealth-building" were foreign to me. I had several degrees and STILL had to work two jobs. I thrived on "struggling" and although I had the information to do better, I have no idea how to execute!

 

For years, I remembered watching my friends buy houses and go on vacations, and I would be working those 100 hour weeks and running on very little sleep. Although I was happy for my friends and I celebrated their wins, a small part of me asked "why can't that be me?" I knew how to make a dollar "stretch", but I had no idea how to make a dollar "work" for me. 

When I got tired of robbing Peter to pay Paul, I decided to take a massive leap of faith and learn more about finances. After years of studying and applying concepts that I thought were only for the rich, I changed my financial mindset. I stopped asking myself how I would manage my family on one income. I challenged myself to stop limiting my beliefs about attaining good credit, purchasing a home, or creating generational wealth. I made a five-year plan to empower myself financially and build wealth for my family - But I had to start from scratch! I changed my habits and honestly looked at the financial prison I'd created for myself and my family.

Now that I've better positioned myself, I want to help others attain financial autonomy!

Personal Empowerment

Empowerment by way of knowledge and education is a powerful tool.

-Devon Keith

 

Personal empowerment involves taking charge of your destiny and making positive choices based on your desires. Although you have good intentions for the future, you must strategize to put those intentions into action! You have to be self-aware, set goals, and claim your space to empower yourself! Your life is a gold mine of knowledge, and I would like to help you tap into your inner power and change your life.

To empower yourself, you must take charge of your life and permit yourself to be great! We are not entitled to a beautiful life, but we are capable of living one! Nothing worth having is free. Empowered people succeed by working hard and staying consistent.
