Rebranding Allows for Personal Growth

We are launching year three of this podcast and renaming it THE Amicable Divorce Expert because my joy is to see couples going through divorce use this experience, this potentially very painful time, to forgive each other, stop blaming, and work together to create a respectful end to their journey as married people. I am also energized and refreshed to see divorcing couples begin a new life, which is the only way to turn divorce into something that becomes advantageous, a direction in life that can be more beneficial than staying married. Amicable is my gospel, my mantra, and the goal I try to help people achieve, through my divorce practice and through this podcast. Please continue this journey with me, and listen in this episode to how my life journey got me to be THE Amicable Divorce Expert!
