Yvonne Reid: Braveheart Woman After Overcoming Failed Marriages
Today, I’m chatting with Yvonne, a fearless female who founded Braveheart Woman to inspire and help other women, after overcoming three failed marriages.
I met Yvonne after she watched my husband, Travis, speak at a conference, and we just connected instantly.
She’s actually the winner of my Fearless Female giveaway in my Facebook group, and I’m so happy to have her in the studio.
Three Broken Marriages
Hailing all the way from Scotland, Yvonne is a survivor of three marriages that failed due to infidelity, abuse, and alcoholic & drug addiction.
She married a handsome successful lawyer she thought was the one in a whirlwind romance. But, on their honeymoon, Yvonne found out who she really married: an abusive drug addict and alcoholic. It was a relationship that made her feel trapped, crazy, and isolated from her friends and family.
Her third and last marriage ended in infidelity. As women are often forced to do, Yvonne gave up a highly successful business career. She even moved across the country for him, only to find out later that of his unfaithfulness.
You would think after her crushing life experiences, Yvonne would call it quits. But, she didn’t.
Finding Comfort In Community
Yvonne joined Al-Anon, a support group for people whose significant others are alcoholics. As a result, the community made Yvonne realize that she wasn’t alone. There are other women just like her who are suffering, and she didn’t have to be quiet about her struggles or internalize her pain. Just as important, the community taught her about boundaries.
Today, with Braveheart Women, Yvonne is on a mission to share her story and empower other women to overcome their fears and lead the life they deserve.
