Monthly Member Meeting | Navigating Divorce & Dating – the Do’s and Don’ts!

Virtual Event Virtual Event

October 18 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm EDT

As you probably know already, 40-50% of first marriages end in divorce, the rates get higher when we try it again (67% and 73% for 2nd and 3rd marriages). And we are never ‘taught’ how to choose partners for happiness – we rely on our instincts (which usually don’t serve us), social media, Hollywood, and lots of ‘urban folklore’ to guide us.

We do not want your divorcing clients to repeat the same mistakes, and we will share important information so that you can support your clients when this may come up in your conversations with them.

This presentation from Smart Dating Academy (founded 2009) will educate you about the world of dating in divorce so that you can understand the pitfalls and the issues that your clients may experience as they navigate these waters.

Smart Dating Academy has had zero divorces and they will talk about how to help your clients navigate this world successfully!

About Bela:

Bela Gandhi is a dating/relationship expert, founder of Smart Dating Academy and has been featured on most national/local media outlets including Good Morning America, Steve Harvey, the Today Show, Kelly Clarkson, Access, ABC, NBC, Fox, and more.
After she graduated (with dual degrees in Finance and German from the University of Illinois in Urbana/Champaign), Gandhi worked in mergers and acquisitions for Arthur Andersen in Chicago for a year before joining her family’s chemicals manufacturing company (CCC), where she divided her time between Chicago and Europe helping to expand the business. When the Gandhi family sold its business to Fortune 500 company Akzo Nobel, she was asked to remain its leader, and became Akzo Nobel Non-Stick Coating’s Global Vice President of Housewares. But even as she quickly climbed the corporate ladder, Gandhi had a feeling that her career would one day be taking a sharp turn in a different direction – because she discovered her love of matchmaking and providing dating advice. She launched her Smart Dating Academy in 2009.
Smart Dating Academy has quickly become one of the nation’s top date coaching firms – and teaches busy, successful professionals to jump start their dating lives successfully, especially after divorce. Smart Dating Academy is described by its clients “like going to Harvard Business School, but for dating and relationships.” SDA’s coaches become personal trainers for their clients’ love lives – helping them to navigate the ever-changing world of online & in-person dating. The SDA coaching program is results-oriented and fun – which helps you to clarify who is right for you, stop old dating patterns, and use technology the RIGHT way. Clients become positive and enthusiastic about dating / relationships again and find love! Bela attends more weddings than she can count and she “loves love”.
