Disrupting Divorce: Conversations for Women

Jan 1, 2021

On this episode Rhonda talks to Elise Buie, an Attorney/Guardian ad Litem at Elise Buie Family Law group. Elise shares her story how she overcame obstacles, so the listeners could not only just get through, but to thrive through their divorce.

Elise shares advice to women going through a divorce:

  1. Don’t be afraid to “dig under the rug” and look at your finances
  2. Find an emotionally intelligent attorney who can see your potential
  3. You are so much more capable than you allow yourself to believe

Elise is empowering and reassuring women that they are capable of thriving after divorce, in every single way: personally, professionally, mentally, and financially. Divorce is a story of adversity, and her strength is helping people find and call upon their strength in times of adversity to transform themselves and their lives into something better.

Elise’s story:

“My story has been shaped by adversity, but determined by perseverance. I grew up in New Orleans, and never imagined that I would move away -- in fact, it took a natural disaster in the form of Hurricane Katrina to force me from my hometown. After a number of unexpected events, my husband and our four children landed in Georgia with only $150 in our pockets. Things only got worse: we soon found ourselves in massive trouble with the IRS, marking the beginning of a years-long struggle out of debt for our family. For me, it was the beginning of a years- long struggle out of a dead marriage and back into the workforce so that I could put my kids through college.

Eventually, I found myself remarried and moved to Seattle. I went from knowing nobody to opening and growing my family law firm into a multi-million dollar business. Im debt-free today, and have put all of my kids through college. It is because of adversity, as much as it is because of my perseverance, that I am where I am today, and it is my greatest calling to help others find their new and independent life after periods of personal adversity, particularly divorce.”
