Lorraine Carlone was married for more than 30 years to a malignant narcissist who terrorized her while she raised two daughters and did everything she could to try to please him and save her marriage. In this gripping podcast, she shares her story with poignant honesty because she is now on a mission to save others from being in similar toxic relationships. Lorraine was one of my actual clients and this is one of the most important interviews I have ever done. It should be required listening to anyone who feels trapped in an abusive relationship. She details how she tried to leave once without a plan and had to go back. Then how she made a plan and was actually able to leave. How she finally escaped; how she got stronger; how she negotiated and got exactly what she wanted, even from one the most difficult situations and seemingly unwinnable cases. Grab your pad, your pen, your tissues, then listen and listen again.
More About Lorraine Carlone

The business, which Lorraine and her husband sold several years ago, became one of the most esteemed electrical contracting companies in Southwest Florida.

Having spent more than 50 years in the Naples area, with 30 of those dedicating herself to design and construction, her knowledge is unmatched.
