E23: “An Unapologetic Mumzi Chat about Divorce” with Author and VP of Global Marketing for Google, Sarah Armstrong

September 21, 2022

This week on The Bizzimumzi Podcast, Ashley is joined in conversation by Sarah Armstrong. Sarah is the VP of Global Marketing operations for Google and author of ‘The Mom’s Guide to a Good Divorce: What to think when children are involved.’ Sarah has been on a mission to help dispel myths about divorce, especially as they affect women, and those myths persist despite widespread acceptance of all kinds of blended and nontraditional families.

Sarah warns that the stigma of divorce remains, especially for women. Often in the workplace but also on the playground. Sarah offers practical tips and advice for moms striving to create a good divorce and to buffet stereotypes about divorce.

In this Bizzimumzi podcast episode we discuss:

  • Dispel the myth of the miserable divorcée by showing your success and happiness with your head held high. Attend your children’s events and school meetings with your ex, gracefully acknowledge your children’s time spent with your ex as an important time for development for your children, and focus on self-care for yourself.
  • Half-truths about your divorce can mutate and spin out of your reach. Share your situation with a limited number of people, especially at work and among friends too, so that you can control the flow of information and protect your children from misinformation about the details of your divorce.
  • Gossips fuel the myth of the inadequate divorcée. Surround yourself with “energy givers,” Sarah says, not energy takers, which is what gossip is. Don’t imbibe them.
  • The media loves an ugly divorce, which fuels the myth that all divorces are ugly. Dispelling this myth is essential to the health and welfare of the children involved.

Sarah offers personal stories of how she herself has worked to dispel the myths of being a divorced mom and provides sage advice for taking practical steps to work toward a good divorce.
