About the Author

Michele Cagan

In another life, Michele Cagan worked for one of the biggest accounting firms in the world. She put on a suit and trekked down to a Wall Street office every day, helping some of America's biggest and most successful companies grow their revenues and protect their assets.From there, she moved to a smaller firm where she still wore a suit, but now worked to help small business owners launch successful companies, and help families looking to minimize their taxes and protect their nest eggs.But that was all before she became a mom.Right before her son was born, she left that corporate world. And that's when things started to change.Even though she was a CPA - a financial professional - once she had her son (and went through a divorce) , there were times she could not make ends meet, and long periods where she lived paycheck to paycheck, desperately hoping no unexpected expenses would crop up... but they almost always did.Thankfully, she had people who helped her through those toughest times.And now, she's dedicated to doing the same thing for you.That's what Single Mom CPA is all about - helping other moms find secure financial footing, not just to make ends meet but also to build emergency savings and college funds, to have a little extra for you and your kids, and to make sure you don't end up drowning in debt.
