Today I’m interviewing Toby Hazlewood an author, freelance writer, father, husband and project manager. He has written on topics including parenting, personal development, modern-life, culture and entrepreneurship. As founder of Divorced Lifestyle Design, Toby is passionate about inspiring those who are working through divorce or separation to choose to thrive rather than merely survive after divorce.
Toby exemplifies that a post-divorce life can be awesome – which can be hard to imagine when you’re in the thick of it. He shares tools and mindset hacks that you can use to reframe your situation and push forward happily and healthily.
On today’s episode, Toby will talk about “bird nesting”; an unconventional living situation where the children live in their own home full-time and their divorced parents live with them in turns. That’s very different from the traditional way we have the kids move back and forth, right? Listen in to hear why Toby is so passionate about living a post-divorce life by design rather than convention.
