Protecting Your Business Through Divorce with Hannah Smolinski
Show Notes

When your business is something you built on your own from the ground up, it can be scary going through a divorce and having part of that potentially taken from you. This is a pattern I am seeing a lot from my clients coming to me for help through their divorce. This week’s episode 72 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about protecting your business through a divorce!

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed, so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch-22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, my guest Hannah Smolinski shares the importance of looking at your business from a protective lens and actionable steps you can take right now to increase your financial literacy and protect yourself in all instances that may come up. Some of the things Hannah and I cover in this episode are:

  • The ways in which a divorce might impact us and our business. 
  • Some of the factors that go into a formal business evaluation and determining if it is necessary. 
  • What options you have to protect your business from the negative impacts of divorce. 
  • The importance of financial literacy and where to start in understanding your joining financial situation. 
  • How to protect your own well-being during a divorce and advice for moving forward when the divorce is done.  

No matter what type of situation you are in, it is hugely important that you have a backup plan to protect yourself and your business for whatever might come up.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of tools, advice, resources, support, and encouragement that resonates with the modern businesswoman and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
