Dealing with a divorce is challenging enough emotionally, but you’re also managing financial stress as well. How are you supposed to navigate these uncertainties in your life, both during and after a divorce?
In this episode, I (alongside former co-host Garrett Philbin) talk with Kayla and Shanah of Cash Wise Ex Wives, an online community where they help divorcees navigate money. Kayla and Shanah went through very different divorces, and speak to how a divorce when single vs. a divorce with kids affected their own finances. We chat about what changed for them after they left their respective exes, how they managed the emotional and financial sides of divorce, and why they believe having a supportive community throughout the process is so important.
