Hello, I’m Bernadette M. Smith and I know Divorced Women…
A seasoned love coach & mentor to divorced women just like you, who want a healthy happy loving relationship. A renowned serial entrepreneur with over a decade’s worth of experience coming to the rescue of bright, high-achieving divorced women everywhere with a foolproof series for finding love. A background in psychology, I’m also a proud graduate of the Dreikurs Institute and Coach University, as well as a Certified Member of the International Coach Federation.
Compatible Connections grew out of my personal experience. After filing for divorce, I found myself single for the first time in 25 years. Having had my last date in college, the thought of dating again was petrifying! Looking to empower myself, I read numerous dating books. Much to my dismay, few were helpful. The authors were full of authoritative advice and opinions leading the reader to “JUST DO IT” strategies and attitudes which to me never felt authentic. What divorcees new to the dating scene really need is the “HOW TO” strategies, knowledge & attitudes that align with their authentic self so they can have successful relationships with men they love. The reality of dating after a divorce isn’t easy but it doesn’t have to be insurmountable either.
After a string of really bad dates, I decided there had to be a better way to do things, that dating had to be more than just a numbers game. I put my background in positive psychology and certified coach training to work became a student of “compatibility” and came up with a simplistic method for divorced women to become empowered confident conscious daters. I call it dating from the inside out! You don’t have to give up who you are to be with someone else. But you do have to know what makes you compatible.
What I’ve learned through my work and personal experience is Emotional intelligence plays an enormous part in choosing not only life partners, but also having a loving committed relationship, and a lasting marriage. Unfortunately, very few people know their EQ. Just for the fact that second marriages have a higher divorce rate than first marriages, it’s imperative to understand one’s own EQ. My philosophy is to mentor and introduce divorced women to their unique emotional intelligence, so that they can, not only attract an inspiring compatible partner, but have the ability to sustain their important relationships honoring their authentic self.
These findings are the foundation of my Dating Boutique Compatible Connections and my two Signature Series: (1) The Laws of Compatible Connection – Collective Consciousness (2) Seek, Sort, and Select Compatible Partners on or off line. It gives me great pleasure to coach, support and mentor the women in “The First Wives Club!”
It’s Time to Find Your Perfect Match too!
