“Once I overcame everything that was going on in my life, I decided that I wanted to help women to do the same,” says coach Olga Kaminer. “I can see women around me struggling in their marriages, struggling in their lives. And I don’t want them to stay like that. I want them to become self-sufficient and happy regardless of the circumstances they are in.” What Olga shares with clients about her own life is her realization that although she recovered from a devastating divorce from her first husband, she did nothing to address her own behaviors. So when she met and married her second husband, that marriage also deteriorated. And she blamed him.
What shifted her perception is that, at the time, she had begun to do some self-development work and was encouraged to stop viewing herself as a victim. One of her teachers said, “You are responsible for everything that is happening in your life. Take ownership.” Olga heard the message, but she needed time to truly absorb it. “It took me a few days to digest that, because for 35 years I was a victim. I was blaming everything on everybody. And now I had to take ownership of everything that had happened,” she explains. “It was a very hard transition. But once you know that you are the creator of your life—not your spouse, not your friends, not your manager at work—once you realize that, you are going to reach mountains. You will be unstoppable.”
In fact, she was able to repair that second marriage and she is still with her husband today. You can read much more of Olga’s story in the inspiring new book Moms Who Boss Up Post-Pandemic, by Tam Luc, the author, educator, and podcaster dedicated to helping women “boss up.” The book collects 16 interviews with moms who are side hustlers and multitaskers, who faced the uncertainties of the Covid pandemic—and other obstacles—by embracing their strengths and finding their authentic paths. They have so much to share and to teach, and while every story is unique, there is creativity and perseverance at the core of each one.
