This show’s guest is Sandra Corso. She is a life strategist, retreat leader, and champion of women's independence! She is frustrated by the socially conditioned women who see relationships as their only path to fulfillment. When she was 40 years old her husband of 16 years suddenly left. She thought everything was “fine”, not wonderful, just “fine. She became accustomed to her not so wonderful, just okay relationship. She spent years trying to be perfect him for him, so when he left, she was devastated and confused. Three months later he committed suicide, leaving her with an 11 and 15 ear old all by herself. She had officially lost herself. What followed was years of trial an error, with an emphasis on error trying to figure everything out. The one thing she really liked was not having anyone to answer to. She realized she could breathe again. She became determined to make a life for herself and her children without anybody else interfering. Now she uses wisdom and the lessons she has learned to help other women embrace life on their own.
