Well I made it to almost 33 years of marriage with my junior high school sweetheart. OMG, what happened? Things were up and down in our relationship for a while, perhaps we were just staying together for the kids; but now the kids were adults with children of their own. Then it just got worse after he decided to quit his job and was then unemployed for 4 years! We had to deplete our entire 401K and savings just to survive. It’s sure not that easy when HE decides to give up a salary well over $100K a year. He finally found another job but it required him to move to another state. That made it even more difficult…..no time together at all and when he finally came home for a visit his attitude was,
“Let’s just keep it status quo.”
That was pretty much the last straw. I knew I had to make a change. So I prayed and thought about the idea of being alone after always being in a relationship. Then I came to the realization that it would be better to be truly alone alone rather than feeling alone when the guy was in the same room with you.
It’s been about a year and a half now and I’m back on my feet both financially and emotionally. And it’s pretty nice. I thought about it and it hadn’t been that easy for me to go through the divorce process even when I was the one that had always handled the finances. I couldn’t imagine what it was like for those of you that didn’t have the experience or understanding of what to do in any of the many financial situations that we go through during our adult lifetime.
That’s when I knew that I wanted to help other ladies go through the processes and gain empowerment in starting over.
Women’s Financial Empowerment came into existence because I wanted to help. Some of the areas I have been working on are —
