Maybe you are getting divorced, or have been for years. Maybe you’re looking around and realizing it’s time for you to ‘adult’ and you’re not sure what to do.

We will cover personal development, financial planning, strategies for introducing the NEW YOU to friends and family, what to do with real estate (need to sell, buy, rent? What do you do first?) And most importantly you will leave with a sense of well being and structure for the new you that you are creating.
