Financial Advisor, Speaker, Money Coach
Statistics show that most women suffer greater economic setbacks than men do after divorce. It is also true that leftover negative emotions surrounding your divorce lead to self-defeating thoughts, patterns, and behaviors with money that will leave you unable to achieve true financial security. Negative thoughts create a new reality of financial struggle instead of financial abundance.
How do I know this?
I left a financially and emotionally abusive marriage after 20 years.
Gradually, I understood the high cost of looking at money through the lens of my bad divorce. I was a six-figure earner, yet I was unable to shake the wake of destruction I had endured by staying in the marriage.
I finally realized that self-blame harbors negative thoughts that keep you stuck and broke. I worked hard to rewire my internal software surrounding my divorce so that I could change the trajectory of my financial future. YOU can do it too. It's not about the money, it's about the emotion surrounding your money.
