Divorce Conversations for Women

Aug 6, 2021

In this episode, Rhonda welcomes Ariel Kopac, the founder and owner of Harness Your Hindrance. They talk about money and the mindsets that keep us stuck. We all experience fears around money, and that fear is heightened when there is a significant life change, especially divorce. Knowing that you can call out the fear, face it, and not be manipulated by it, you embrace the power you have. We can be manipulated by fear, or we can manipulate our fear. The choice is ours. Women going through divorce need to know that they have the power to choose.

Ariel’s message to you today is: Whatever you decide, know that your greatest limitations are always those that you place upon yourself. 

Listen to this episode and learn about some of the strategies that may impact your mindset around money. 

Here are some of them:

  1. Whenever you focus on what you do not want, you are keeping your focus there instead of on what you do want. 
  2. Our associations are powerful and can be helpful or hurtful. Reframe money as a tool that you use. 
  1. You have to know your truth, so you can deflect the lies and stay strong and focused on what you want to say. You have to know what is your ideal and what is nonnegotiable. Take out time for yourself, figure out what you want first, and then go into conversation.

Our guest today was Ariel Kopac. Ariel is the Founder and Owner of Harness Your Hindrance. 

Here’s how Ariel describes herself: I am a mindset business coach, focused on empowering people to find and face the fears that are holding them back from reaching their next level of success. My professional background is in training and development for financial advisors. My curiosity for understanding what holds people back was strongly prompted there. My passion for tapping into the potential of a person has led to my founding of Harness Your Hindrance. I have studied personality assessments, neuro-linguistic programming, limiting beliefs coaching, and human behavior concepts to learn how to tap into the mind and maneuver mindsets. Clients have called me a "mental ninja" as we have discovered what was deep in their mindset, holding them back from pursuing what they want.

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.
