    Off and Running in 2022. Plus: Preview Two More WHEN DATING HURTS Audiobook Chapters

    This is a short episode but it includes a couple of questions for you about dating violence. Plus, we also added two more chapters from the WHEN DATING HURTS audiobook which will be released soon on Amazon and Audible. We are in final editing. I wish we could move faster.

    As we enter 2022, please think about putting a real emphasis on learning the warning signs of an unhealthy relationship. You can google them online, or consider picking up a copy of the WHEN DATING HURTS book on Amazon. Not a big investment when it can make such a difference in someone's life. 

    If you know someone who's a survivor of dating (or domestic) violence, someone who wants to tell her (or his) story on this podcast, please contact me at BillMitchell@WhenDatingHurts.com. We have been told our survivor stories are the most helpful episodes we have created.

    Bill Mitchell - Interviewed on the "I Need Blue" podcast

    From time to time, I am fortunate to be asked to be interviewed on someone else's podcast. This is one of those occasions. 

    "I Need Blue", hosted by Jen Lee, shares real-life stories of people who have experienced traumatic situations. It's a podcast that supports survivors of violent crimes. It also gives thanks to law enforcement professionals who were there to save the day.

    Sheri Kurdakul - Domestic Violence Survivor and Forward-Thinking Entrepreneur

    Sheri Kurdakul - Domestic Violence Survivor and Forward-Thinking Entrepreneur

    Sheri Kurdakul is a domestic abuse survivor. There is nothing typical about the abuse she suffered. Like many survivors of abuse, her story is challenging to listen to but there is much to be learned from her.

    Most survivors I have met tell of the frequent times they were on the receiving end of despicable abuse. But they also speak about the inventive ways they endured and eventually overcame those circumstances. This is one of those stories.

    At first, you might feel sorry for Sheri but later you will come to admire and celebrate her courage and desire to rise above. 

    This is Sheri's story.
