Hey Lisa!!! I just wanted to say thank you for the Second Saturday workshops. I attended one in November 2016 and it was pivotal for me, in that, it gave me a lot of information which helped me to move forward with getting divorced, and doing it on MY TERMS. Since taking the workshop, moving forward with divorce, and coming out on the other end with my pride and dignity intact, I've often thought about how to get the word out about Second Saturday. I heard about it from a friend, but it was very happenstance. Divorce is still kind of a dirty word. There's still quite a bit of stigma that surrounds it, especially in the early stages. It's still kept so hush-hush. And then once it's final, people don't know what to say...should they give condolences or congratulations. I experienced all of this myself. The workshop and resources provided are invaluable. There were only three people (including myself) in the workshop I attended. I wish more women (and men) were aware of it and took it. Maybe the word is / has spread and numbers are up! If so, that's fantastic, because it provides a great service to people who are at the beginning to middle stage of the divorce process.
When I was blindsided by divorce, the first thing I did was crawl into bed. It was either 3 weeks or 3 months, I can't recall. In the fog, I could barely put one foot in front of the other, let alone feel like I could make the logical and necessary financial decisions I needed to. The idea of dealing with the collateral damage to my finances was simply overwhelming. Lisa guided me through the process, step by step, to help me secure my financial future for me and my children. She showed me how to manage what I had and talked me through exactly what I needed to do moving forward. From handling home buying/refinancing to life insurance to taxes to budgeting, she provided assurances, was responsive and helped me take control of every aspect of my finances. Being able to rebuild my life financially with someone on my team to help navigate me through the fog of my divorce was truly invaluable.
