Episode Description

Donna Kendrick will never forget that “Omgosh, what just happened?!?!” moment when she discovered her husband Greg passed away suddenly in November 2013. During her time of grieving Donna quickly realized that she had stepped into a new role overnight, one where she had to take control of her family’s finances in order to keep life consistent for her and her kids. Important family decisions came on real soon and real quick, and Donna had to figure out how to navigate this new season in her life, which meant finding the professional resources to help. Donna has made it her life’s work to help other widows and widowers navigate their own financial decisions in the first days, weeks and months of widowhood... and the years to follow. She is the author of A Guide to Widowhood: Navigating the First Three Years to help through the first days, weeks and months of widowhood... and the years to follow. Donna is also the host of the Widow, Wisdom and Wealth TM podcast, which aims to remove the intimidation out of financial planning, so families can handle any transitions that come their way. Listen in as we discuss life after losing your partner with Donna Kendrick!

Real Money with Lisa Chastain

Monday at 10AM on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Not enough women are talking about money. The truth is, so many women feel shame and guilt about the choices they are making financially, and it isn't their fault! Men earn 90% of the wealth in the world. Although women are the majority spenders at 85%, we are left to figure out for ourselves how to manage our money following male dominated advice. Every woman is capable of feeling confident about the choices she is making about her money. The problem is that for so many women, money isn't relatable. Experts are talking over your head, and this show is the perfect place for you to improve your confidence and relationship with money. My goal is for women to lead in all areas of their life with clarity that they are making the right choices for their families, their careers, and their futures. With Real Money, we are going to share real stories of women who are tackling their most difficult financial challenges.
