Many parents have mixed feelings when their children move out to go to college or live on their own. Being a single mother is hard enough, but becoming an empty nester can be more difficult or even traumatic.

My guest Dawn Berry has combined her own experience of being a single mom and her coaching skills to help single parents find fulfillment in life when they are an empty nester. In this talk show we will discuss how to find your truth in life and be confident and aligned in what you want to do now you start a new period in your life. The past may be over, but the future is wide open and ready for anything, for you and your child.
