by Kathy Caprino


Working as a therapist and career coach over these past eight years, I've seen what life can do to people.  I've observed deep trauma and crisis, such as when a beloved spouse abandons his/her family for another lover, exclaiming to the marital partner of 20 years, "I'm sorry, but I never loved you."


I've seen drug addiction and alcoholism ruin people's futures.  I've experienced cruelty, rage, and despair, and witnessed how a full-blown, uncontrolled midlife crisis can wreak havoc on a couple.  And I've watched these tough economic times knock men and women to their knees.


All through it, I've seen people broken by their despair, as well as those who have risen above - who've become better, not bitter.


How can some people turn their crises into fuel for positive change, while others become angry, resentful, victimized, and hopeless - beaten by their challenges?


There are 10 traits I've observed in those who find a way to be better, not bitter, after tribulation and crisis.  These 10 traits are:

For women ready to embrace an exciting new life after divorce...


I'm very excited to introduce you to my friend and business associate Colleen Bushby. As founder of Savvy Divorced Chicks, Colleen has created a terrific online community devoted to empowering divorced women around the world to live a life that is "better, not bitter!" Through her Coaching Programs, Teleseminars, Blog, and Radio Show, Colleen provides invaluable information and resources in all the areas women navigate in their life after divorce...personal development; health & wellness; finances; career & business; and relationships.


Colleen is passionate about helping divorced women transform and take back their power to stop healing, and start living! She has just launched a new Program, "Live, Laugh, & Let Go!" that I thought you (or a friend) would be particularly interested in.


"Live, Laugh, & Let Go!" is a unique Lifestyle Mentoring Program combining a FULL YEAR of One-on-One and Group Mentoring and 4 All-Inclusive Luxury Retreats, including private accommodations, meals, & daily excursions in Sonoma, Montana, Scottsdale, and Tuscany!


This program is not for everyone! There is an application process and seats are limited to 8 lucky women.  Live, Laugh, & Let Go is for you if you are no longer caught up in your divorce story and are truly ready to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit and get back to the essence of "you" while creating dramatic positive change in all areas of your life.

As a single mom of 4, no one understands better than Colleen how easy it is to get lost in the roles of wife, mother, and friend, but also how critical it is to take your power back after divorce to rediscover you and live life so you are not just existing.

And when you model for your children that you can be a mother and a woman and they see you excited about life, it has a huge positive effect on their self-esteem!

This could be the best year of your life if you just make the decision!

Please take the time to view and watch the "Live, Laugh, and Let Go!" video.

Then go to to register and apply to be one of the eight divorced women who will be living the sweet life for the next year.  And tell Colleen that Kathy sent you! 

Are you ready to invest in you for the next year and see how amazing your life can really be?





Below is a brief recap of Ellia Communications' array of career and executive coaching programs and services.  Let us know how we can help you and your company help achieve your career and workforce goals and visions. 


Each of these services helps individuals and organizations attain their highest visions for growth, success, and reward.
