My Story from the Heart
When my husband died it felt like a big part of me died, too. I lost the love of my life and the dreams we shared. But that pain helped motivate my own story--moving from heartbreak to breakthrough. After his death, I wanted to use my gifts to help my widowed sisters and their advisors.
This purpose became my calling. It began with writing a guidebook for widows. Today it continues in my "encore career" as an Advocate for Widows--through speaking, writing, mentoring and research.
When the time is right, give this guidebook to your widowed clients or friends as a compassionate gift.
Do You Work with Widows?
More than 1 million women are widowed every year in our country. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, we’ll soon total 13 million. No woman wants to join this heart-breaking club. But 70% of all married women will experience widowhood, and 80% of women will die single. Yet 80% of men die married!
It’s reported that 70% of widows change advisors after their spouse dies. That’s because their advisors didn't understand their grief and their widow’s journey. Didn't understand that the personal side of financial planning is just as important as the technical side.
