037 - Going From Rags To Riches After Divorce.
Angela Marshall is the author of Reality to Rags to Riches – The Story and Life of an Ex-NFL Wife. She is a motivational speaker, a columnist, and a creative writing consultant. Angela talks about how she had struggled through a lavish but sorely lacking lifestyle as a former NFL wife, leaping from a life of emptiness into ultimately finding that sense of purpose – living vicariously through herself.
Angela met and married a professional athlete. Leaving home and the support of family and friends, they moved to Denver where she got introduced to a crazy lifestyle. At this time, she still felt that void. Angela felt all the pressure that went along with the NFL-lifestyle. She describes her relationship as being children raising children. Her life was just a mess. Even though they were living comfortably and helping family members, they were living a luxurious lifestyle. But Angela still felt empty amidst all those.
She reinvented herself after divorce and is an inspiration to many today. Listen to her story and go out and write yours!
