Disrupting Divorce: Conversations for Women

May 7, 2021

In this episode Rhonda welcomes Jessica Coenen, Founder and CEO of La Belle Creative. Jess shares her story of being divorced twice, left almost homeless, without an income, and full of questions like: Who am I? And then starting over, answering those questions and building the new story for herself.   

Here are some of her encouragements:

  1. This is you new life and fresh start. And that is scary as hell because you don’t know what’s around the corner. 
  2. What do you fantasize about? What are your biggest dreams?  

Even if you have to go to work at Starbucks, or somewhere, be thinking about what your dreams are and you’re passionate about, and could you market that, could you sell that. 

  1. When new information enters the equation, you get to make different decisions. You can only start with where you are. We cannot forecast our future so we have to do what we can in the present with the information we have. And trust ourselves enough that when we have a new information, we are ready.

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

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. Her topics include: assertive communication, boundaries, leadership and overcoming financial myths. Her speaking experience includes: GE Healthcare, UWM Women’s Leadership Conference and Marquette Law School. In addition, she has appeared on Fox6 News, Real Milwaukee, and Morning Blend. Her dynamic and inspirational style leaves women with a sense of empowerment.
