Transitioning from two incomes to one is a significant life change, especially if you've been out of the workforce for a while.
    Navigating the financial landscape can feel like walking through a minefield, with challenges and uncertainties at every turn. From managing day-to-day expenses to planning for the future, the responsibility can feel overwhelming. In this episode, we explore five common money blockers and I also share practical strategies to help you regain your financial power so you can pave the way for a brighter, more prosperous future.

    399 - Post separation abuse

    399 - Post separation abuse

    In this week's episode, we're diving into the often overlooked topic of post-separation abuse. While it's not widely discussed, it's unfortunately experienced by many.
    We start by exploring the correlation between high-conflict personalities and abuse, shedding light on this important connection. I also share eight common ways that post-separation abuse can manifest itself, as well as four steps to prepare for safety and six other methods to help you manage the situation.
    Post-separation abuse, often emotional and psychological in nature, can leave victims feeling confused, anxious, and unable to trust themselves. Research indicates that emotional abuse can be more psychologically damaging than physical abuse. If you're finding yourself in fight, flight, or freeze mode, you're not alone. Stay tuned as we delve deeper into this crucial topic.

Immigrant Mom in the MidWest ,

Powerful!

I started listening to this podcast in 5 years ago when I was going through my separation and divorce. I am thriving as a divorced-single-parent for 5 years now but I am still here listening to this amazing podcast. I have been wanting to share my own story with Julia on the podcast for a long time now but my situation presents some challenges. My story will not be complete without mentioning a terrible thing one of my in-laws put me through. I have patched things up with this person and they are in my child’s life now. I have recommended this podcast to a lot of single parents I know. This podcast is popular where I live. Because of that, my unique story will easily identify me because of the notoriety of my ex-husband. Even if I talk about it anonymously, people can easily identify me and this could potentially destroy the relationship my child has with my ex-husband’s family. Maybe one day, when my child is no longer a minor, I would love to tell my story. My life is driven by my goal to keep my child safe and provided for. Which I am successful at. Thanks to my friends, my job, and this Podcast. Someone told me before that my story will one day be someone’s survival guide. And it has been so many times. One day, I will share my story. But now, I will just keep supporting this podcast by listening and recommending to friends who could benefit from it. What a powerful podcast. Thank you, Julia.

Succeding ,

Thank YOU!!!

Thank YOU Julia for helping us thrive from the courage of exiting abusive toxic relationship that nearly sabotage us. So that we gain power back from toxic ex whom tried making us feel shameful or tainted us to a complete opposite parent to our children. And that we can be the role model for many more targeted parents and victims from abusive relationships to safely walk away with survival plans. That they have choice NOT to tolerate and condone abusive behaviors another second. Trust your intuition compass. Your feelings is your best bodyguards from the worst.

Thank you for this! :)

Good so amazing helpful in a time of pure struggle and grief. Trying to focus on myself and be the best version I can for my daughter. This has been a wonderful listen back and forth from work and on nights when I was doubting myself. Keep going! Thanks for helping the single mom tribe! do
