Don’t Fight Mad with Cindy Villanueva

“She was born into a loving family of rebels who taught her that education was key. And, when she got older, she set out to fulfill that teaching. But her plans would be averted after she became a teenage mom. She would end up struggling through divorce and wrestling through single motherhood. Nevertheless, she rose. Cindy earned both her Bachelors and Masters degrees, she wrote a book, and started several businesses all between the ages of 40 and 60. Come and hear how learning to “Not Fight Mad” changed everything for her and how it can change your life too. This is a story of doing the unplanned and unexpected. This is Cindy Villaneuva’s story and it’s a story of continual overcoming and perseverance from another strong, resilient, calm, and God fearing F50Woman.”
