The night Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico Monique Caradine heard wind ravaging her home, watched water filling her bedroom, and awoke to find a community devastated by damage far worse than she or her neighbors had ever imagined.
Without running water and no power for six months the sick and poor became more vulnerable and Monique, a former radio and television personality from the South side of Chicago and a certified coach whose business relied on internet faltered. As she visited and offered aid to families on the island she found her experience helping women tap into the abundance in their lives and her strong faith fortified and guided her.
Hurricane Maria taught her that every storm in life has a beginning and an end. It taught her that in the midst of a storm may be when people discover who they are but in its aftermath, they discover who they can become.
Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago Monique Caradine lives full-time on the island of Puerto Rico with her husband and son. She is a certified coach and founder of Overflow Enterprises who helps women fix their relationship with money. She is the host of the podcast Sisternomics available on all podcast platforms.
