One of the scariest realities when you go through a divorce, is finding your way around your finances. Nothing is more terrifying than having to confront what you don’t know. Sara Chevere has been helping women get smart about money while navigating the pain of separation.
Key Points in this Episode:
✔️When it comes to divorce, you want to learn how to delay gratification. Often when we are going through pain, we want to have external things fulfil us. We start spending a lot of money. Take those emotions out and embrace anticipation. Instead of focusing on your current circumstances, look at the potential of what your future will look like. Ask yourself: now that I’m divorced, who am I? Who do I want to be? Where do I want to end up? When you learn to shift, practice delayed gratification and embrace the anticipation; you’re going to come out a lot better, stronger and hopefully richer than your previous circumstances.
✔️ You’ve heard financial coaches stating matter of factly that if you can’t manage $1,000, you can’t manage $10,000. Nothing can be more true for a reminder. Contrary to what you believe in, learning how to handle your money will not come when you get more money! (Heard stories of lottery winners & celebrities losing their fortune?) It’s time to invest in getting financially savvy and see how wealth will naturally follow.
✔️ Many women hustle and hustle hard. But they forget that they shouldn’t be only working for their money, but let money work for them. Being in the financial industry for so long, Sara sees women struggle financially, wanting to start other businesses, which is great. But at the same time, if they don’t understand how money works, they might be thriving but find themselves still losing money.
✔️ Should you fight for the house? Sara Chevere has this to say about working with women going through a divorce and being strategic on what to do with the marital estate as an asset. When they can set their feelings aside, they can come from a logical place to make the best decisions for themselves and their kids. To realise that the house is not something they should be fighting for despite not being able to afford it. The money they spend on attorneys fees could go to a college fund or invest more strategically. Doing so helps them avoid making mistakes during the divorce that can be a costly liability in the future

Going through an immense betrayal can be the most difficult thing to get over. In fact, it makes it hard for us to trust others again. Believe me. I know how it feels. My ex-husband cheated on me, and he was the last person I’d have ever thought to be capable of hurting me. It took me some time to realize that trust has to start within ourselves.
After her son was born, Kristy Carruthers had to sell off their clothing, jewelry, and belongings. She started interviewing for jobs at four weeks postpartum. After living on credit cards for a few months, she just hit the end of the rope and ended up having to sell the house to pay the credit card bills. That’s when the mind shift happened. I said to myself, ‘You know what? This can never happen again. This is not acceptable.'”
When I was married, divorce was never on my mind.
It never occurred to me that it had to be something I should learn about.
Fast forward to today, it continues to be that gift that keeps on giving. It has taught me about myself more than I ever knew.
Even though I’ve undergone therapy, I still believe that what I’ve endured and experienced post-divorce unraveled five lessons that I never would’ve discovered on my own.
