Most of the time we discuss the serious legal aspects of divorce on our blog, but once in a while it’s nice to take a step back and realize that divorce is a choice that people make in hopes of having a better future. Legal matters aside, it can be a very emotional and isolating process. Many individuals come out of a divorce without a job and without any prospects in terms of a new relationship. Some may even feel isolated from their friends because many of them are happily married.
While some may feel defeated, one divorced Florida woman decided to use her experience to benefit others. The woman started her business called DreamsRecycled.com almost two years ago. The purpose of the website was to allow divorce people to sell items related to their past relationships. These items may include wedding bands, engagement rings, wedding dresses and the like. People who are planning to get married can go on the site to purchase these items at a great price.
Although that was the initial purpose for the website, the entrepreneur said she is “branching out.” Not only is the website a marketplace, but it’s also a place of support and a place where people can even meet other singles. She now has a team of experts for the site, such as doctors, therapists, and bloggers. She now writes blogs on every topic from emotional concerns to financial issues. She currently has more than one million visitors come to her website.
Although divorce may sometimes feel like the end of the world, the Florida woman wants people to know that it certainly isn’t, and that in fact, “it’s the beginning of a new world.”
