Lynn Flanagan remembers the first night she left her abusive husband and realized that her life had changed forever. Although she had good friends she could trust, the rest of Flanagan’s future was a frightening blank. How do you suddenly start over as a single mother of four?
Flanagan knew she had to find what made her happy, and she had to do whatever it took to give her kids a good life. She loved running and excelled at event planning. With these passions in mind, she founded her own sports marketing and management company. Many told her that she would never be able to be successful in the business, and she proved them all wrong.
Now, Flanagan shares the early days of her new life and all the decisions that led to her professional success. In addition to the amazing highs she has reached, she also includes the difficult and debilitating challenges she faced along the way. A chronic illness, the trauma of her abusive marriage, and disingenuous people all plagued her, but Flanagan didn’t let any of it deter her. As she learned from her own running, the best thing she could do was keep moving forward.
