Recycling dreams is a booming business for Florida entrepreneur

- Lots of famous couples split up in 2015. There was Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. But no matter who you are, divorce can be one of the hardest parts of your life.

A divorced entrepreneur in Orlando says life can get bigger and better after divorce -- and she's made a business out of helping people do just that.

Tiffany Beverlin started her business, DreamsRecycled.com, 18 months ago. It began as a site where divorced people could sell their wedding gowns, wedding rings, and other things from a past relationship. New brides could go to the site to buy the stuff at deep, discount prices.

That's still a big part of her business, but she's branching out.

THINKING BIG

Now she's grown the website into a virtual marketplace and  community to help people with every aspect of divorce. She's interviewed and assembled a team of experts for the site.  

"Everything from financial, emotional, doctors, therapists, peer-to-peer,  bloggers; I blog constantly," said Beverlin.

She was a stay-at-home mother with three children and no resume when her divorce happened. Now she's become a divorce guru with more than a million visitors to her site. 

She says she wants people to know that divorce is not the end of the world.

"It's the beginning of a new world," she continued. "It opens up a million new opportunities that you didn't have and that's what we focus on."

STAR POWER

Beverlin has become a star on social media. She says she has an agreement for a reality show but can't discuss details because of a confidentiality agreement.

DreamsRecycled.com has become a popular place for people to chat and arrange dates. Beverlin says there's no pressure as there is in other dating sites. She says it's a place for support.

"Somebody saying, 'I've been there. I feel that. I felt that. It's OK. You're going to be OK.'"

Beverlin is the face and personality of her site, often whimsical and funny, always marketing. She even cooked up a "Win a Birthday Date With Tiffany" contest.

"I don't know exactly what it's going to be like," she laughed. "My mom and kids are going to pick the winner."

While her business is about divorce, she doesn't rule out getting married again someday. But, for now, being a divorce guru seems to fit her just fine.
