Joining us today is Lora Georgieva, one of our certified Purse Strings professionals. As a college planning professional and the founder of Destination College, Lora knows firsthand the ways women are impacted by financial barriers. She will share her harrowing divorce experience, the lessons she learned (financial and otherwise), and much more on today’s show.
Lora immigrated to the United States in 2003, with the ambition to provide for herself and her children. She started working in a bank and eventually became a financial advisor when her husband served her with divorce paperwork. In April of 2009, her divorce battle began, where she ended up learning family law in order to advocate for herself and her children.
For three years, Lora battled inside the courtroom and to an eventual trial over her and her ex-husband's finances. From visitations, college expenses, child support, and much more Lora saw the reality that many women face when they go through a divorce. Now, she’s dedicated to telling her story and protecting women from the same hardships she had to endure through her own divorce.
We also will discuss:
· The three-year-long divorce and trial Lora withstood
· Overcoming the loss of her house and starting her own business
· How she helps people attain education and career goals
