What is MOXIE?
MOXIE means “an attitude of fearlessness in everyday circumstances.” And MOXIELIFE COACHING is for WOMEN IN BUSINESS … who mean business … when it comes to WINNING IN DIVORCE.
Divorce is a fear-inducing, soul-crushing and gut-wrenching transition in your life. And if you’re a woman who owns your own business … or works in Corporate America … then the emotional, legal, financial AND professional impact of your divorce will be much greater … quite simply, because you have more to lose.
Here are the facts:
- Just under 50% of marriages end in divorce … and the majority of those divorces are initiated by women.
- Those very same women are knocked back financially at least 4 – 6 years after a divorce … while a man’s income remains the same or increases.
- We already make 21% – 54% less than men in the SAME JOBS.
- Yet, the court system wants to see 50/50 agreements … even though women work a lot harder for the same buck.
How are 50/50 agreements even possible when our society isn’t 50/50? When our pay isn’t 50/50? When our access to opportunity isn’t 50/50? You worked really hard to get where you are today … and yet, none of that will matter in a divorce.
Increasingly in our society, professional women are the financial breadwinners in the family … juggling a career, while also managing the majority of the family needs at home. It’s already a balancing act … one which is unsustainable when your partner just isn’t a partner in supporting you in all the ways you need. I know. I’ve been there. When you realize the personal cost of all that juggling … on your mind, body and spirit … then it will all come tumbling down. And as a professional woman, the impact is not just on your marriage and your lifestyle, but also on your career.
Divorce … and the long, drawn out process of separation and divorce … is hugely stressful, crazy expensive and downright painful. Your entire identity is turned upside down and everything you thought you knew and relied on is gone. In my case, I questioned everything and I can only imagine you will too.
- How will you know your marriage is really over?
- How will you stop this divorce from costing you emotionally, legally and financially?
- How will you best move forward in this legal process?
- How will you trust you’re making the right decisions?
- How will you deal with your inner critics who might be telling you this is a failure and you’ve let everyone down?
- Who are YOU now you are no longer part of this couple?
- How do you envision a future, beyond this separation or divorce, you are excited about?
Work with me … before, during or after your divorce … to gain the knowledge, tools and support you need to minimize the impact of divorce on your emotional, physical and spiritual well-being … as well as on your family and professional career. Through coaching, you will step into your power, lead this process and gain the clarity to know what YOUR answers are.
And know … the impact of coaching will not only help you save valuable time, money and sanity in the divorce process … but also support your growth and evolution as a leader in your career and industry. You need it. Our society needs it. Our world needs it.
Moxie Gets Results!
“I found my time spent with Laura some of the most useful and productive things I have done for myself. It was a gift to myself to invest in coaching with Laura. My issues and problems didn’t change but yet I found new answers and new approaches to my lifelong struggles. I am certainly not done but enjoy living a more authentic life than I ever have.” — Joann
“I lived in a state of confusion for years. A few sessions with Laura & my world starting seeing clarity. You owe it to yourself to be coached; no reason to go through it alone.” — Liz
“It’s never too late to make changes and to find the path that is right for you. Life coaching with Laura helped me find places in my life and my thinking where I had become stuck. Her perceptive questions and assignments challenged me to re-examine how I viewed myself, my experiences, and my world. Some discoveries shocked me. The new perspectives I gained through Laura’s coaching have led me to make some amazing changes in my life. Be warned though, participating in life coaching is not for the faint-of-heart—you will have to take a hard look at yourself and recognize what you have been doing that isn’t working for you and then you will need to have a good amount of courage to start doing something different. Life coaching helped me discover facets of myself that I didn’t even knew existed. I am now venturing into new things that reflect the passions and life purpose that had been buried inside me all these years and were only able to be uncovered, recognized, and appreciated through the insights gained from Laura’s coaching.” — Merrilee
“I came to Laura not knowing what to expect. I was miserable in my marriage and I knew I needed something (someone?) to help me finally make a decision about what to do. I came across a blog post of hers and called her the same day. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to get through this process on my own. When you are thinking about divorce, it’s like deciding to leave everything you know and enter into some kind of strange, dark abyss where everything is mysterious—possibly horrifying and possibly glorious, and possibly both. What I came to learn, through Laura, is that my marriage/divorce is only a small part of the puzzle of why I feel stuck, undervalued and prone to listening to critical voices that have been following me for years. Oh my god, I did not know I was going to go there with Laura! I thought we were going to talk about divorce! So far in my time with her, we haven’t much talked about divorce or how much of a jerk my husband is, or my lawyer will be, etcetera. Without wasting even a single moment, Laura systematically helps me uncover (and debunk) all the reasons I’m settling for less than I need, want and deserve. After only a few sessions, Laura has helped me see that I’m like the person clinging to the wave-beaten detritus for fear of drowning when the island paradise is only a few yards away. I just have to let go and swim! One more thing… Laura specializes in divorce but I think anyone dealing with life’s challenges (be it divorce or something else) can benefit from working with her. She is a truly talented and practical coach. She has high expectations of you and I think you will have higher expectations of yourself after even a few sessions.” — Teresa
“I’ve been working with Laura for several months now, and I have to say, I am so grateful to have found her. I am having a really tough time with my life right now. It’s completely upside down and each day is a battle. It’s a long journey toward recovery, but if you are looking to work with someone that will help you and keep you from falling off the edge, she is the person to work with. There’s no judgment, there’s no talking about the past, it’s all about moving forward. We all instinctively want to harp and lament on the past, but Laura does not let you fall into that pit for a long time, because she knows that moving forward is your only option. She helps you realize that focusing on the changes we can make now will shape the future we want. I don’t know what is to become of my future, but I can tell you, that if you told me six months ago I’d be working toward what I am working on now, I’d think you were crazy. Laura has helped me stay the course. She’s there to support you, guide you, and keep you going, no judgment. EVER. I thank the Lord for her every day. Work with a coach, not a psychologist or therapist. They’ll only make you relive the past and for what? So you can dissect something you can’t change? That’s not productive. Working with Laura is. Work with her, you’ll be glad you did.” — Andrea
“Coaching through MoxieLife has given me ways to be the best version of myself in my personal and professional life. Instead of living in fear of negative perceptions, I have chosen to see the positive outcomes of my making good choices about my goals” — The Honey-Colored Light, Encouraging Others to Be Their Best
“Since moving back home at the end of July, I can’t even tell you how great things have been. I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined that our situation could turn around like it has. We are really enjoying spending time together, going on vacation, just COMMUNICATING. It’s really amazing. When people ask me what changed to allow us to reconcile, I have to tell them that we BOTH changed. Wow! People at work have commented on my new-found sense of confidence, and how I handle things differently than in the past. I think I say this every time I reach out to you, but I really can’t thank you enough for guiding me and giving me the tools to turn my life around. I sing the praises of life coaching (and specifically YOU!) often!” — Lisa
“Talking to you in our consultation really gave me the validation that it was OK to feel the way that I did about getting a divorce. And you also showed me a strength that I didn’t realize I had. Thank you again for reminding me of the empowerment I have inside. You are truly a blessing to me.” — Omeshia
“My life and mind were in total chaos when I happened across Laura’s website. I had no idea she was exactly what I needed! She worked me through some of my most difficult times ever and provided me with the tools and wisdom I needed to move forward. With her help I’ve discovered an incredible sense of personal peace, and am feeling more confident in my future than I have in a very long time.” — Lisa
“It’s much easier taking the high road when you are living for yourself and not allowing someone to make you feel a certain way because of their actions. It’s liberating. You’ve taught me some valuable lessons and made me realize what’s important to me and how to be happy again! Thank you! You helped me off the ground when I was down… Words can’t describe….” — Noha
