This week, Stacy is joined by Sallie Mullins Thompson, a CPA who has been through the divorce process, herself. Sallie focuses on the importance of being financially independent for a healthy marriage, as well as for a healthy divorce, should it come to that.  Becoming financially independent, like coming to the decision to end one’s marriage, is not a transition that happens overnight - both require a tremendous amount of time and preparation, financially and emotionally.
