Divorce Spurred Me To Start My Own Business

The defining moment in my marriage came the night my father died. I hadn’t felt loved or cared about for, by my husband, in years. I knew then that I couldn’t spend the rest of my life married to him but I had a 12 year old daughter to care for.

Three years later after two bouts of depression and counselling, I started to make plans in my head. I’d worked for a bank for 15 years prior to having my daughter but hadn’t worked since other than volunteering at her primary school. I’d had a small cattle rearing business with my father-in-law and had kept the books for that business, so I decided to do my bookkeeping exams. I still had no plans to leave my husband until our daughter had gone to university. Events, however, overtook after I had a break away on my own. So in December 2008 I decided enough was enough and asked for a divorce.
