Angela: Victim + Victorious

In the third episode of the podcast, we shift gears yet again -- because some of the Compelling Women are extraordinary not because of what they do professionally, but because of what they endure personally. 

Angela's story is both unique and, sadly, all too common. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men are victims of violence by an intimate partner. Angela is part of this statistic, which is why parts of this interview are messy, even raw. But she has thoroughly rewritten her story since this incident, which is why the interview ends with laughter and a focus on love and light.

I can never thank her enough for bravely sharing her story with us.

If you'd like to donate to an organization that supports domestic violence victims, Angela recommends YWCA of Nashville, TN and House of Ruth Maryland. For a limited time, she is helping raising money for the YWCA. To donate to this fundraiser specifically, you can click here, select 'domestic violence' and donate in tribute to Angela.

Theme music is provided by the always awesome Scratch Track.

The show is produced by the incredible Derrick Clements.
