My Divorce

I just wanted to take a few minutes and get personal. I don’t normally talk about my personal life, not because I don’t want to, but because being a female online and telling it all is a bit odd (I’ve got  weirdo stalker types actually! 🙂

But since I recently changed my name on Facebook back to my maiden name of Jaime Masters, everyone has been asking.

Yes I got divorced after being with my husband for 15 years. We are still very good friends and the kiddos are doing amazingly well.

I’ll let this video explain a bit more! 🙂

  • Thanks for sharing that, Jaime, Divorce does suck, even when it’s amicable. Congrats on following your truth. I love seeing this side of you. <3

  • Love you Jaime! Thank you for being brave and being willing to talk about a huge issue.

  • You’re such a strong person and the fact that you’re telling everyone now- a Class Act! Masters Class Act!!!!

  • You ROCK Sister!

  • Thanks for sharing,

    You are very brave to share your story. I can definitely identify with you as a super motivated female entrepreneur with big goals and dreams and a husband who thrives on the slow and steady pessimistic approach. He told me that creating a podcast, writing a book, and looking at creating an online community was a hobby like him playing golf. I keep pressing on!

  • Thanks so much for sharing this! Divorce is never an easy thing to go through, but it looks like it was the best decision for everyone involved 🙂 Sending lots of love! And YES, Masters is an amazing name to have!

  • Marry me !!

  • what a beautiful, honest and INSPIRING sharing. I loved your energy and just want to say thank you for being a shining example of a leader.

  • Congrats Jaime on sharing this with the world! Honestly, it makes you look more human and I am sure it will help your business grow even more. Sure, there will be haters, but who care’s about them?!

    Also, happy to find out that you are a fellow Pisces – you ROCK!! (well, more like we rock :))

    Oh, I am marrying my high-school sweetheart this October, so fingers crossed 😀

  • Divorce can never be an easy decision so I can understand why you wouldn’t want to share it.

    I wish you the very best for the future.

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Thanks for being authentic and real. I’d be curious if entrepreneurs have a higher chance of divorce than non entrepreneurs.

  • Way to go Jaime! You are a great example of a woman in business that holds her own even in the midst of trials. Thanks for being transparent so that it will give others encouragement to do so as well. No one should judge you because we all have things like this that come up that we have to navigate through. You are a great mentor! This experience probably has made you even better at what you do! God bless you!

  • Well done Jaime,

    Children are happiest when their parents are happiest, whether the parents are together or not. What you’ve both done is being honest. Should, in the future, one of your children face the same circumstance, I’m sure you’d want them to be able to follow your examples, be honest and do the same.

    You have fans around the world and that won’t change on little bit.

  • Thanks for sharing Jamie, good luck. I can definitely relate. I am happy to hear the kiddos are handling it gracefully. I am scared of raising kids in two different household. Continue to be happy, life is short.

  • Thank you for your transparency, Jaime! You are a rock star. So glad our paths crossed. 🙂

  • Great job on your growth! Great job engaging your peeps who love you and want what is best for you. You are truly amazing.

  • Really great of you to be so transparent – and way better to deal with it head on then leave all the guessing and nay saying. Greatly appreciate your influence in my life and look forward to continuing to watch yours unfold.

  • Better to be a master than to be tardy.

  • Congrats on sharing this with us! Sending lots of love! You are a strong woman radiating great energy!

  • WOW, your story is so touching. You are such an amazingly brave woman, and so inspiring! Of course, you know that.

    Through your story, I can see a lot of women facing the same circumstances, yet most of them too afraid to pull the trigger to do what is right for them is getting a divorce.
    You also have shown that divorce is not a failure, but rather opportunities for the one who’s brave enough to take it.

    Thank you for sharing your story, and being transparent. Being vulnerable is never easy, but the exact act declares how strong you truly are.
    Love you, and Thank you for all you do. <3

  • I read between the lines and kinda figured it out the first time I saw “Masters.” Divorce is never easy no matter what the circumstances…something I wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy. But it’s sometimes the wisest thing to do, especially if you’ve tried every which way to make it work. I certainly relate.

    Good to know you guys both landed on your feet in the end. All the best.

  • Dearest Jaime. Thank you for your candour. I know it’s so hard putting your personal stuff out there. Well done. Onwards and upwards!

  • Love you! Thanks for sharing and thanks for inspiring me!

  • This was amazing video!

  • Jamie,

    This is very courageous of you to share. I can relate so much with this, although I did not have children with my ex. I will also say that it was not as amicable as what you are discussing.

    I am wondering how you dealt with the grief of the death of the marriage. It’s just very tough to have something that you worked so hard to make happen die.

    I wish you nothing but success, Jamie, and hope that the healing has been good for the both of you.

    It’s amazing how freeing it can be. For example, I was able to make my business grow 5x from where it was at the time of the divorce, so I can relate to being focused on the business.

  • Wow!

    You didn’t have to share that much, but I appreciate your honesty and transparency.

    Take care,

    Jairo Levi.

  • Hi Jamie,

    Thanks for sharing this. I’m not “sorry to hear” this because it sounds as though this decision will bring greater happiness, health and harmony to you and everyone in your life. We are all on our own path. Celebrate all that you’ve had along the way and look forward to the next chapter in your life – the best way to do it! You’ve also got something special with your audience as I am sure you will soon see in the amount of comments and attention this receives. Keep up the good work, I look forward to future episodes.

    Best wishes
    ~ Damien

  • Thank your sharing and for showing us how courageous you are; and for reminding us that life is made of of obstacles that we need to overcome in order to keep our dreams alive !!!

  • Thanks Jamie. Getting divorced where the children are involved is difficult–but you handled it very well–kudos to you and your ex for keeping the children’s welfare a priority.

  • Well, do let me know if you want to find your soulmate, your ideal husband. I am the only author in the world with the COMPLETE formula. And yes, there IS a formula.

  • Nice job Jamie and I know that the both of you will always give it all for your children. You are both great people and you still have such a special relationship that will last for a long time. Give the kiddos a hug for me, and take care of yourself. Told your Mom I would go out with her when she takes care of the rug rats when you travel!! Not sure who would have the most fun.

  • I’ve always found you to be incredibly inspiring and impressive. Now, even more so! Admire your goal to put your kids first, truly co-parent, and creating a schedule that works best for your kids. After spending years as a divorce lawyer, this is RARE! Your kids will benefit so much from seeing you two work together for their benefit.

    Thank you for your positive influence on my entrepreneurial journey–Your podcast keeps me motivated on the road to Eventual Millionaire 🙂

  • I was wondering because of the whole name thing. Just wasn’t sure what that was all about… Now I know! I think it is so amazing of you and brave of you to put this out on a video and talk about your personal stuff. I am equally amazed that people are asking you such personal questions, particularly about your money?? And interestingly enough, you are answering….. some of them anyway! Thrilled that your divorce was amicable. This is the BEST thing ever that you could do for your kids. Kudos to your and your Ex for being able to do that.

  • Jaime, we have gone through this as well and recently in December 2015. Its tough enough talking about it especially if you are high profile. But, we support you, your ex and your children during your transition. Keep positive (I say this to me self as well) and blessings to you for all you do for our lives in Eventual Millionaire.

  • Amazing video Jamie. You spoke so openly and that’s what’s just so great about you – you’re bustin’ so many grooves in business but yet are so down to earth – what a super person you are. I wish you, your great friend and your kids many wonderful times ahead X

  • Only a person of tremendous character and authenticity could
    be so honest. Thank you.

    Jaime, you are amazing.

    Much love and support to you and your family.

    Regards,

    Lisa

  • Jaime,

    Thank you for the transparency. I still think you are awesome! I been listening to your podcast over the past 2 years. I’m going through a separation now (we still working hard to keep our marriage). This video is helping me

  • Thank you for sharing…really courageous!

  • Very courageous of you Jamie. Move forward Ms. Masters!

  • Glad to see you are doing well.

  • How big of you to share all of this. Good on you. In a way I feel sorry that folks are so inquisitive. You are a big person. Respect

  • Kudos on being so open Jaime, and it’s awesome that you guys still get along (it’s the same with my ex and I, we were together since university). Authenticity rules!

  • Whoa, Jaime! You got married at the age of 21 and got divorced 15 years after? But you look too young! And it sounds like your kiddos are as amazing as you are!

    Haha. I kind of wish that you say yes to the reality show opportunity. I don’t usually watch the reality shows, but I would definitely watch it if you’re featured. 🙂

    Thank you so much for being such a wonderful role model! I’m learning so much from my millionaire mentors. I will definitely keep you in the loop when I finally become a millionaire haha.

  • Jamie, I’m a longtime reader/listener and I have you a lot of respect for you especially after sharing something so personal. I’m so glad the kids are doing well and that your divorce went as well as it did, despite your financial hit. I know you will soar to new heights. PS Love the new office!

  • Hi Jamie,

    Your video will be an inspiration to the many people who watch it. Thank you.

  • Thank you for sharing! We’re rooting for you Jaime 🙂

  • Thank you Jamie for being so honest and transparent. You didn’t have to do this and you don’t owe us who follow you anything. You give a lot and we all appreciate it. Wish you and your family the best moving forward.

  • Thank you for taking the time out to share this. Jamie Masters will be awesome in all the NEW marketing… go crazy.

  • I enjoy reading your blog but had never commented till today. Divorce sucks but you are ok till now & you will still be okay from now.

    If you get sad just come back to this post and read all these amazing poss from people who love you divorced or not. MwaaaaaH!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jaime, I watched your whole video and I feel your pain in separation process as it has happened with me and my husband twice. Towards the middle and end of your video, it seemed as if you were “justifying” the separation between you and your husband, and that made me sad. This is because there is NO excuse for a man to not be the man in a marriage and make things work and make you happy. It does take two, but the MAN is the responsible being and head in a marriage. I’m sorry he failed you, and even sorrier that you feel the need to blame yourself. I know better than that. You deserve better!

  • Appreciate you sharing this! So proud of you

  • The one thing I like most about Micheal Hyatt is that although hard he shares about his marriage, and his faults. I think this makes him more real and more human. I love your book, podcasts and your material. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and I am so glad you two are friends and have a plan. Keep going on your given path.

  • Hi Jaime, you are brave and openly told world honestly. You made the right decision. In our tradition in Popondetta Papua New Guinea there is a saying sleeping together with a partner is missimg but everything you have are yours i e house, children , car ,money, your business and freedom. Your are
    Rock. God’s bless you and your children.

  • thank you for sharing

  • Thank you for sharing the video and being so open about your divorce! It is inspiring and somehow seems to be the most amazing divorce I heard of. I would say I am just a level lower, cause our relationship had been challenging for years before the decision to divorce was taken and we finally ended up being friends, though not so close as you guys but pretty good and kids are pretty well so far at least.

    I wonder how the world would be like if all the divorces were at least like that 🙂

    Congratulations for how you all handled it and are living your lives and the choices you made. May you have a beautiful relationship with each other, no matter where life takes you 🙂

    And congratulations for you, Jaime, for managing all that when your life was turned around. You are lovely! Best whishes to you!

  • Hey Jaime,

    Thank you for sharing your story. You’re a trooper! I’m a big fan of yours. You have a special way of being authentic that I love and appreciate.

    Also, thank you for the book. Looking forward to reading it.

    Godspeed,

    Jayson

  • Hi Jamie,

    Can I encourage you to look at the next 15 years and further. I went through the same senario over 30 years ago and it was very difficult way back then.

    Here’s the good news! We have remained friends for life. In fact we both got married and have been for over 20 years. Our children are now adults. We see each other on a regular consistent basis because we managed to work things out through the tough times and the good times.

    Our two children have two dads and two mums. But wait there’s more. Our two girls have 5 children each meaning we have 10 grandchildren.

    The price to pay as an entrepreneur can be risky (as we all know, not just in business but also in our personal lives however the greater the risk the greater the reward. I really commend you for telling your story and please keep this in mind: All things do work together for good so as long as you stay focused upon the bigger picture and the cause you both have been passionate about.

    We are on the verge of a huge breakthrough in our business and thats because I came across you a couple of years ago (probably about the time you were going through a very tough time) and your words of wisdom love and encouragement found its mark because you must keep in mind. What you are doing in your calling (influencing people just like you) is whay you do.

    I was attracted to you because of your openess about your debt so it was a natural progression to sharing your new life as a Master and after so many interviews it just makes sense that wisdom prevails.

    I am so proud of you young lady and as long you keep keep teaching what it is that you live your message will always be real, inspiring and finding its mark for those whom it has been designed to impact.

    I have always taught over the years that the best thing a man can do for his children is live their mother. That was the secret we have when we went our different ways. I have loved and continue to love my children’s mother (and her new husband) and our return on that investment has been the love they share with us.

    That meant our two children got a double portion than they would have had we tried to stay together. Today our focus is upon our 10 grandchildren and the legacy we will be leaving for them.

    Your future is ahead of you and I trust that this post will encourage you in moving forward in such a way you impact a lot of people in more than one way and in 15 years time who know’s what that would bring.

    What I do know is that …. well I just told you my story

    Love you Jamie Masters
    Chris and Rowena
