On this episode:

Jane Blaufus, best-selling Author, Speaker, and Business Coach at The Blaufus Group talks about courageous conversations, women’s wealth and health, and her award winning book, “With the Stroke of a Pen: Claim your life”.

We all think we’re ready for whatever life hands us, but when the unexpected happens, the reality is we are always unprepared.

That’s why it’s important for women to take the time to have what’s been referred to as “courageous conversations” with their loved ones, before a sudden and serious illness strikes or crisis happens.

And what about women & their finances?

According to a recent study*, at some point in their lifetime, 90% of women will be required to play the role of sole financial decision maker & when this happens, what are the challenges that women face in terms of their financial well being?

You never know the turn your life will take, so make sure you’re prepared.

If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to have those courageous conversations with your spouse, partner, children, loved ones and your business partners, before a sudden illness strikes or crisis happens.

As Jane says in her book “Have faith in yourself. Lean in, listen to your head, your heart, and your intuition, and know that only you can ultimately determine what is right for you. Trust yourself.”
