Surviving Abuse Podcast | Domestic | Physical | Dating | Violence | Victims | Straight | Gay |

I’m Mickie Zada and I lived in abuse…for 34 years…from age 19 until I was 53. I believe we create our realities, and I chose to stay in a damaging relationship for so long because I thought it was my Calling. I was wrong. I changed me. I am now an enthusiastic participant in Life. “The words ‘I am’ are potent words; be careful what you hitch them to. The thing you’re claiming has a way of reaching back and claiming you.” A.L. Kitselman I am a strong woman, a fabulous woman, over 60 years old. I am a Change-agent. I am an encourager. I am uniquely qualified to speak to living in abuse, getting out and surviving to the fullest extent. I know what it takes. I know the fear. I am a survivor. I am a coach. I am happy to have these “I Am” words to reach back and claim me! The actions I teach and share are those that I’ve learned in my Journey from choosing to live in abuse to choosing to create my authentic life; safe, sound, Real. I invite you to read through this web page. Think about who I Am. Read blogs, listen to some podcasts, watch live videos. Do we connect? I am open and exposed. Choose to reach out to me or not. What I know for sure is that I lived the life of abuse, and got out, and I’ve thrived, to serve as a beacon to other women. If you live in abuse, or you’ve recently escaped, it’s my Mission to support and encourage you to choose and live a healthy life. The materials, the tools, the support is here. It’s your responsibility to grab hold and change yourself, from the in-side out.

From traditional roles of wife and Mom to successful entrepreneur, Carolyn Brown offers sage advice and theories to seriously consider while on our growth path.

After becoming a single Mom and embarking on a successful real estate career, Carolyn discovered direct sales… because her identity became that of a Realtor,  though, when she decided to change careers, she wondered “Who is Carolyn Brown if not a realtor?”

In building her business she learned the value of allowing others to help her (a giant lesson for most women) and she learned it’s the space between the notes that makes the music.

“The Girl on the Right”

Have you made outside-the-norm choices for your life?  Do you long to do something meaningful, even though you’re in your “second 53 years”?  All you need is a little inspiration and some encouragement to take that first baby step?  This is the podcast for you!

This episode is inspired by a face book graphic…several little girls in ballet class paying attention to the teacher, but “the girl on the right” is hanging upside down on the barre by her knees!  The caption is:  “Be like the girl on the right”.

Research led me to four women who chose paths not traveled by their peers: Agree with their politics or not, they lived “girl on the right” lives!
