I love stories about people who are able to turn their divorce into something postive and help others. Here is one from Nakia Herring at the Baltimore Times.

It seems that Allegra Bennett, a reporter for the Baltimore Sun and Washington Times, didn’t know anything about fixing things in her house after 23 years of marriage. After her divorce, some things needed fixing.

After speaking with her ex and some repair people, she decided to take on the projects herself.

Now she has launched Renovating Woman Magazine, which has a website, and seminars to help woman fix a hole in the wall, repair the plumbing or hang sheet rock.
