After leaving an ex who tried to strangle me while I was pregnant, I was homeless with two children; now I own a £375k house.

Dani Wallace made the courageous decision to leave her abusive ex when she was four months pregnant with her second child, after he tried to strangle her at a wedding.

The single mother, now 37, struggled to pay her mortgage and ended up homeless with two young children.

After 30 years of living in council housing, the author and coach from Preston has slowly rebuilt her life and now owns a £375,000 home.

Dani is married to Mark Wallace, 35, who works as the chief of operations for her movement I Am The Queen Bee. She has three daughters: Poppy, 13, Daisy, 11, and Ivy, five.

The company’s goal is to motivate others to make the same changes Dani did in order to become the best version of themselves.

No one is going to take you in.’

“It’s difficult not to believe when you’re in that vulnerable position.”

We had to rely on the court to untangle us at some point.”

‘You have two children now, from two different fathers,’ my ex would say.

No one is going to take you in.’

It’s difficult not to believe when you’re in such a vulnerable position.

Dani traveled to Europe in her early twenties to perform on stage before returning to the UK and landing a corporate job in HR, where she trained senior managers.

“I felt like I had this husband-shaped hole in my life,” she explains, “so I settled down with the first guy who came along and was nice to me.”

We purchased a home, had a child, and sent out wedding invitations.

“Then, after four years together, he woke up one morning in May 2008 and said, ‘I’m not ready for any of this,’ and left.

“I felt extremely exposed as a result of that.”

I thought I’d created the ideal life, but it all came crashing down around me, leaving me a single mother.
