Parents all around the world are doing a magnificent job.

Especially single moms who care for their children.

They need to provide for their family in a bigger way.

When Lauren Kilgore, who has worked for 15 years in the same company, asked her employer for a raise, she was met with blank stares although she missed all the functions at her kid’s school because of her job.

To break the glass ceiling of her corporate job, she started selling her wreaths on Etsy.

In her spare time, she learned everything she could about selling on Etsy….
