Thrive Through Divorce 5 Day FREE Challenge! 

Feeling fear and frustration in your divorce journey?

Do people keep telling you this is your chance to "start fresh" but you have no idea how to do that?

Is your brain constantly racing with gloom and doom thoughts?

Are you feeling just.... broken?

We've been there - and we can help you take the steps to transform your journey and start smiling, a lot!

Join us for 5 days of speakers with strategies to move forward in focus, not fear.

5 days of stories from women that have been where you are  and have moved forward to where you want to be.

In just 30 minutes each day for 5 days, you will learn the tools you can use NOW in the areas of mindset, finances, empowerment, co-parenting and more! 

Featuring: Catherine Grace O'Connell!

Catherine Grace O’Connell is an Ageism Positivist, An Empowerment Cat-alyst, the Founder of The Forever Fierce Revolution, a global Facebook Community dedicated to supporting and celebrating the Modern Midlife Woman, and the CEO of Forever Fierce Media, a female-focused message based digital media agency.

However... Four years ago, her life looked vastly different. She was a woman who almost lost her life to late stage Lyme Disease, disempowered from decades of trauma and abuse. She had no self-esteem, no passion, no purpose, and no future.

What changed? She changed!  Catherine Grace's beliefs changed and her life began to dramatically transform. She let go of who She was told to be in order to become the woman she had always desired to be.

And Catherine Grace O'Connell will show YOU how to take YOUR first steps to do the same!
