Isn’t it interesting how our lives unfold? I am always fascinated by the interests and trends from our childhood that provide foreshadowing of what’s to come. In fifth grade, I wanted to be a meteorologist. However, I didn’t actually care about the different types of clouds, weather forecasts or barometric pressure. The truth is, I had a dream of being on television and if that meant talking about the weather, then so be it!
At 11 years old, I discovered my passion for public speaking. I was writing and delivering speeches that not only captured the audience’s attention but often moved them to tears. The speeches I wrote were intended to evoke social change. They were passionate, inspirational and compelling with a clear call to action. When we realize our talents, it can be overwhelming. I felt a great sense of responsibility to use my talent for good. Public speaking, by default, puts you in a position of authority. And, it is something I take seriously.
Since that time, I have been on television (yay!). I have developed signature presentations to empower women – especially those going through divorce. And, I have used my voice to help women find and use their voices too.
Now it is time to use a new communication platform to connect with even more women. I love being able to use my long-standing degree in communications, my financial and business tenure and my teaching experience to launch a new podcast called Divorce Conversations.
This podcast will provide women with the tools, resources and inspiration to initiate tough conversation about money, seek financial knowledge and ask the right questions.
Ask the right questions if you're going to find the right answers. -Vanessa Redgrave
