Despite her experience, knowledge and astute pre-planning Jane was still shocked by how many financial pieces were left on the table for her to organize and wade through. She did not take those terrifying lessons lightly and penned her first book, WITH THE [STROKE] OF A PEN®, Claim your life. The book shares her personal story but is also an educational tool, with takeaways and a comprehensive 30-page checklist aimed at helping others not to have to go through what she went through. The book is a testament to Jane’s mantra “we have an obligation to ourselves and to those we love to make sure that we leave this world in an organized manner”.
The special episode will be hosted by Kim Parlee, and will feature a live audience. Sharing two perspectives on how widowhood affected them, Jane and Jeanette will discuss their personal journeys and share their greatest learnings. A frequent keynote speaker and financial expert, Jane regularly provides commentary on financial topics surrounding pre-planning, personal finance, financial trends and demystifying insurance needs. Jane says, “My goal is to provide people, especially women, with the motivation and the tools to start having those clear and honest conversations most of us are afraid to start with our loved ones, so we can finally take control of our lives, both personally and financially. Should the unexpected ever happen to you, you want the focus to be on your family and your needs, not your unanswered questions or missing paperwork”.
This special episode of Money Talk will air on Wednesday, February 26 at 7pm EST on BNN. MoneyTalk is an investing and personal finance weekly television show sponsored by TD Bank.
