Hi everyone! I would like to personally welcome each and every one of you to SingleParentsNow.com.
My name is Ty Oliver. Educator, advocate for children with learning disabilities, entrepreneur, and internet socialite are just some of my titles.
I am proud to say that the most important of all is being a single mother of two boys, Kota and Bran!
Sitting in the doctor's office, I heard three words ,"you are pregnant, " that changed my life forever. At that exact moment, I went from being young and carefree to "Hey, I'm about to be someone's mom."
Shortly after given birth to my second son something started to change in his father. He no longer wanted the responsibility of being a parent. In the blink of an eye, he was gone.
I was crushed and never imagined I would travel the journey of parenting by myself. I had no clue how to be a young parent, especially a single parent.
Fear and reality started to set in. I had to grow up quickly. I needed to get a job, finish school, and raise my two children.
It's always negative people that wish for your downfall; my situation was no different. However, I was determined not to be a victim.
I slowly started meeting with similar people from all walks of life. We talked about issues and the unique challenges we face as single parents. The beauty of it all is that we worked together to overcome trials and tribulations thrown at us.
Without this diverse network of single parenting mentors, let's just say things would have been so much harder.
You're not a number. You're not a statistic. You're certainly nobody's charity case. I really want you to understand that. I now know my worth. So it's about spreading the love.
It's about spreading the knowledge I gained over the years parenting my boys. I want to share what I've learned from being a DIY-parent while going to school, changing many careers, and learning to earn money online with no prior experience.
Working in the education field, I meet many young mothers that just need advice dealing with life ordeals. Some simply need to hear words of encouragement from another person outside of their usual sphere of influence.
I found myself repeating a lot of the same things. So I thought, why not put all this information in one place on a website so others can have access to it when they need it?
I didn't have a clue about how to create or put together a website. So I kind of put it on the back-burner.
Little did I know that my friend, Jakarri, was just getting into learning how to build websites. He basically stated we should to a website together, and I could learn and earn extra income.
He knew just enough to know that we both should get with a program that would be affordable and provide the tools we needed to be successful on the internet.
Also we needed a program that provided assurance that if we couldn't do it, there would be no forced commitment, no pun intended. Having the flexibility to be able to change our mind was important to us.
Jakarri is a real resourceful guy. He eventually found the best platform for us to start building a website.
Trust me, after everything I've learned in four months, it takes a lot to be successful online. However, it's doable and within reach with the right system.
We decided that doing a website based on single parenting was the best way to go. Because I've talked so much about my kids and developing a system of resources, he felt like I could resonate with other parents and help them succeed.
So that day singleparentsnow.com was brought to life at a local Starbucks.
There's no doubt in my mind that this website is going to change the course of my life forever. This is not only due to my passion to help other single parents but because of the people that are helping us with this project.
It's set up for anyone to win! As I stated earlier, it's about spreading the love and the knowledge. So now I turn the tables to you. What are you passionate about?
More importantly, what are you waiting on? I invite you to turn your passion into freedom. The freedom to be who you really want to be. Now is the time!
