Divorce is a huge leap of adjustment that requires you to set new boundaries in your relationships with your ex, children, coworkers and other people. Boundaries are not walls. Boundaries are your stance for action - the decisions you’ll make, what you’ll do and the outcome of your choices. You use this to avoid pain and suffering coming into your life.

Traci Scherck is a Retention Strategist/ HR Consultant who works with organizational leaders to create the space for every employee to go home every night fulfilled in the work that they do. In the divorce process, there are so many things that women can't control. But the one thing they can is establishing boundaries.

In this episode, Traci teaches us how we can set boundaries in our personal lives and in the workplace. Reminding us to thoroughly think what boundaries we are setting and how are we going to ensure that we follow through on these boundaries to love and respect ourselves.
