Our guests today was Beth Crowell, owner and founder of The Hippie Banker. Here is a bit about Beth, in her own words:

"I have been through a divorce -- and have been able to remain friends with my ex-husband. It was a very healthy divorce and am so grateful for that. After coming out of my own divorce, it has always broken my heart hearing my friends (and sometimes acquaintances) share with me their unhappiness in their own marriages, but feeling stuck and unable to make a change. In fact, when I first left my job to become a life coach, I had intended to focus on helping women through divorce, but divine guidance led me down another path! However, being involved with the WFWC allows me to bring it back in, to which I am very grateful.

Business ownership is a way that women can gain control over their finances, and feel empowered to take control over their destinies. Being reliant on a spouse's income can be a very strong hook that exacerbates the fear associated with leaving a marriage. With my background as a commercial lender, consultant for the Small Business Development Center at UW-Eau Claire, instructor for the Women's Business Center at Western Dairyland, and my deep spiritual base, I can help guide women through not only the technical aspects of starting a business, but also through the fears and limiting beliefs that often hold us back from pursuing what we know deep down inside is right for us.

Our host of Divorce Conversations for Women Podcast is Rhonda Noordyk, CFEI

Rhonda Noordyk's relentless pursuit of financial justice for women going through divorce drove her to leave the financial industry in 2014 to open The Women's Financial Wellness Center. She was in search of a better way. She used her knowledge, passion, and experience to build a leading-edge business model. The intention was to create a business that provided a safe place for women - especially those in a vulnerable position - to find their paths, find their voices and find the financial confidence they need to lift themselves out of seemingly hopeless situations. Since starting the Women’s Financial Wellness Center, after a 10+ year career in the financial industry, she has helped alleviate financial vulnerability for thousands of women.

​In addition to being the CEO of The Women’s Financial Wellness Center, Rhonda is also a professional speaker. While her platform is women’s money wellness, it is not just about money.
