Wendy Sloane joins me to discuss the importance of slowing down the divorce process. Yes, once we’ve decided to leave and let our decision be known, it’s easy to fall into the “let’s hurry up and get this done” phase. In this conversation, Wendy and I discuss why taking your time, researching, and finding the right lawyer is the best first step forward. This episode is slightly different than most – we cover many important topics and share some of our personal experiences through divorce.
Wendy honed her easy and authentic interview style, producing iconic, groundbreaking TV shows, including The Phil Donahue Show and The Geraldo Rivera Show.
