Coach and attorney Karen Covy saw her divorce as an opportunity to help people in need.

Everybody’s story is wildly different, but Karen Covy noticed women going through the same crossroads and making the same mistakes.

Now, she shares her expertise and advice so you can avoid them and go on the other side stronger and better than ever.

Tune in to this episode on Biggest Mistakes People Going Through Divorce Make with Karen Covy.

Key points covered in this episode: 

 ✔️Understand financial implications. Settlements are not always 50/50. Even if your situation seems simple on paper, spending an hour with a financial advisor won't hurt.

✔️Know what you want. Who should decide who gets to take the kids to school on Tuesdays? Not the judges. It should be YOU. You know what’s best for your family. Just be sure your ex-spouse agrees with it, too.

 ✔️Keep moving.  Any movement is better than no movement. Nothing gets solved all at once. It’s key to take baby steps – one thing at a time – and consult a therapist to help you get through the physical and mental toll.

✔️Be prepared. It gives you the absolute best chance of getting what you want and ending up where you want to be. Get your head in the game. Know what you’re willing to compromise and your deal breakers.

✔️Home is where you are. Is moving the best idea? Should you sell your house? Strip out the emotion, and make your decision. Whatever it is, there’s nothing wrong with letting go of the good and bad memories.

✔️ You are so much more than your divorce. Nobody gets married to get divorced or to believe that’s where it’s heading. But if it happens to you, don’t blame yourself. Remember that there’s a life after this.
