Today on The Whole Circle we talk to Kylie Travers. Her story is incredibly touching and will hit a note with everyone. We talk from the heart and nothing is off limits. This interview is incredibly powerful and we hope that by sharing we are able to help others suffering from domestic violence.
Kylie shares with us her heartbreaking story. She was raised as a Mormon and married at 19. Escaped domestic violence, fleeing the family home with her two daughters with very little possessions or money. Soon after this she was robbed, raped and homeless. On top of all that she lost her mother at 15, has had cancer scares and suicidal thoughts.
But this has not stopped her from achieving some amazing things. She has completely re-built her life from scratch after hitting rock bottom and is now a multiple award winning CEO, speaker, author, freelance writer and advocate.
Kylie went from homeless to success and now teaches people practical ways to save, build clear money goals and focus on multiple income streams. She absolutely loves to help others overcome their obstacles and turn them into opportunities.
We discuss ways to leave an abusive relationship especially when you're not financially independent. We talk about just how blind you can be to multiple forms of abuse whilst in the relationship & what you realise upon leaving. Kylie also gives us some tips for close friends or family that are in toxic relationships and how you can continue to support them even if you can't "make" them leave.
