Getting to know Stella Papadopolous

The MoneySaver Podcast with Stella PapadopoulosI’m Stella Papadopoulos, an artist, writer and author of I’m Getting Divorced Where Do I Start? After my late-life divorce, I had to change my vision of my future, and those new beginnings taught me about women's empowerment. This became the springboard for my best, most awesome life yet - where I wrote my guided journal on divorce to help others through the same process.  It’s never too late and you’re not too old to follow your bliss!
