Ameé Quiriconi (author of The Fearless Woman’s Guide to Starting a Business) talks getting through a divorce financially.
In this episode, Rhonda welcomes Amee Quiriconi. Amee is an advocate, business consultant, speaker, author, and the owner of Activity Girl, LLC. Amee has been divorced twice and has learned valuable lessons from each experience.
According to Amee, divorce is emotional. We have to find space in our divorce process to breathe, to calm down, and to come back to the really hard decisions that we have to make when we are not amplified, and elevated, stressed down, and depressed.
Here are some of her thoughts and recommendations:
- Support system is invaluable. It is hard to do this on your own, especially in a high-conflict situation. We have to figure out where can we get resources of people that are not in the swirl, in the perimeter of the hurricane, but are sitting safely and calmly in the middle.
- Divorce is hard. And if you haven’t done therapy or counseling for the duration of your divorce, I highly recommend finding somebody who can help you with that because divorce is triggering a lot of things in us.
- Pivot, stop and think about what you’re doing. Treat it like a business. We have to be able to evaluate what is the cost – emotionally, financially… and what is the potential of returning our investment.

Our guest today was Amee Quiriconi, Business Consultant, Speaker, and Autor, the owner of Activity Girl LCC.
Here’s how Amee describes herself: Unfortunately, I’ve divorced a couple of times and had to deal with financial abuse before and
during a divorce. My financial turnaround in my life was of the hardest things to do, but it happened. I am an advocate for women and their financial independence, even if happily married because you never know when life will happen, and you will need to support yourself (and maybe kids) all on your own.
