Georgia Durante has spent the past ten years traveling the world to share her experiences and stories featured in her best selling book The Company She Keeps. Her travels have allowed Georgia to meet and hear the stories and experiences of women who are facing what she did. Those meetings have allowed Georgia to personally councel and advise women about how to find their path to safety and recovery from their abusive situation.

Over the past ten years, Georgia also heard by email from women who wished they could meet and talk with her but they couldn't be where she was appearing. Now every month, Georgia Durante is making that possible. She'll be hosting a special webcast radio show which will allow women to call in, share their stories, ask questions or tell their personal experiences of survival and how they reclaimed their life.

Some of the topics Georgia will talk about every month will include...

  • Escaping Domestic Violence
  • Spiritual Rebirth
  • Belief In Yourself
  • Rebuilding A Life After Trauma
  • Parenthood
  • Support Groups
  • Personal Safety
  • Creating A Personal Support System

It all sounds like exciting and glamourous times but they also held risks and dangers that Georgia had to stand up and face.

The first person every woman has to believe in is herself.
