EP69: Planning for divorce when you're not planning on divorcing
What? Who would plan for a divorce if they’re not planning on divorcing their spouse?Here’s the thing, divorce doesn’t typically happen out of thin air.

Cliché, but true.So whether something is just feeling off, you’re considering divorce or you’ve decided to go through with a divorce, it’s a good idea to meet with a lawyer to understand how current issues in your marriage would be addressed in court. Doing this allows you to make informed decisions for yourself and your children in the current state of your marriage.Listen to Elizabeth Lindsey, attorney and shareholder at Davis, Matthews & Quigley, P.C., as she shares advice on what women should do leading up to or going through a divorce.Connect with the Sole Source teamWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I Instagram

EP67: How to have a happy birth day with Sarah Lavonne
Women are strong. We are resilient, and we hold the power to bring new life into this world. And while having a baby is just about as natural as it gets, that doesn’t mean we naturally know what to expect and that we shouldn’t prepare for it. About one-third of birthing people describe their birth experience as traumatic, and too often that’s because we either didn’t know what to expect, we felt like we didn’t have control over what was happening to us, or we felt alone in the process.The great news is, we can take steps to make sure we have a happy birth day with a positive birth memory.Sarah Lavonne from Bundle Birth is educating and empowering expecting women and nurses alike to not only make sure labor and delivery ends with a healthy mom and healthy baby but that there’s also a healthy memory to look back on.To hear more from Sarah, find her on YouTube and Instagram.Connect with the Sole Source teamWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I Instagram

When you are focused on something, you’re not blinking much, and our eyes have a muscle inside that flexes when you’re looking up close at something.

Episode 61: Don’t put your head in the sand. Owning your financial future with Tanya Nichols
“Women make financial decisions for the benefit of others at the expense of ourselves.” Oof… That hits hard. While we’ve made great strides, many women still have internalized feelings about needing to care for others first. Now, that alone isn’t a bad thing. But an important piece that cannot be neglected is having awareness of how caring for others is affecting your own finances. It is risky to leave yourself in the dark and have someone else control your finances. Divorce happens. Death happens. And having an awareness of how much money you have in various assets, how much money you’re bringing in, and how much money you’re spending is not easily outsourceable like hiring someone to mow your lawn or paint your house.Tanya Nichols, CFP® is the Founder and President of Align Financial, and she is helping people, especially women, create a healthy relationship with their finances and take ownership of their financial future.

EP59: We’ve Got a Problem: The Opioid Crisis Aggravated by a Pandemic with the Mayo Clinic
Opioid and substance use disorders were major issues before COVID-19 shook the world. And while everyone is at risk, those already struggling with substance abuse were thrown into a perfect storm. Experts have tragically observed that a year of isolation and social distancing due to the pandemic has aggravated the Opioid Crisis. In many ways, the stresses of the pandemic pushed people who may have been making progress with their opioid use disorder back toward substance dependency to cope with all that is happening. In this episode, we're talking with Dr. Helena Gazelka, an anesthesiologist who serves on the Opioid Stewardship Program Subcommittee at the Mayo Clinic. If you need help with an opioid or a substance use disorder, reach out to the Mayo Clinic at https://www.mayoclinic.org/.Connect with the Host - Raquel LamalWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I Instagram

EP56: Traumatized People Need Trauma-Informed Care with Jennifer Bartolotta
You know that phrase, don't judge a book by its cover? That is exactly what we're talking about in this episode of Sole Source. Life is messy and a tornado of feelings can come out of the trauma we experience. Without being able to regulate those feelings, they can creep into our behavior that touches all aspects of our lives. It can be confusing to us and to those around us who may not know that our behavior has its roots somewhere else – our trauma. Jennifer Bartolotta, the owner of Bartolotta & Associates based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is teaching people about Trauma-Informed Care. This type of training can not only transform a workplace but can also help deescalate problems and prevent major catastrophes from happening.

EP55: Caring for Caregivers with the CDC
Caring for a loved one with a critical or terminal illness often becomes the number one priority in a caregiver’s life. But what we end up seeing is those caregivers pushing aside their own physical and mental needs to focus entirely on providing that care. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says self-care is just as important, and we can all take steps to make sure caregivers feel supported and are not ignoring themselves by asking a simple question: How are you feeling right now? Tune into this episode, requested by a Sole Source listener, to learn different ways we can help the caregivers in our lives.Connect with the Host - Raquel LamalWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I InstagramBuzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!
