One Well Widow
The Financial Reality of Becoming a Widow
Show Notes

In this episode I interview Emily Lassiter, attorney turned financial advisor, founder of the Wealth Edit https://www.wealthedit.com/ and a widow raising two children.  She shares her journey of becoming a widow and the new identity that she must navigate to provide for her family.  She talks about the healing process is so much more than the emotional side.  You can't separate the financial side out of healing because you don't know how to move forward unless you know how much money you need to sustain your life.  After becoming widowed, she decided to devote her career to serving women who have gone through an early tragedy. She talks about her career pivot, tips for women who may be in this situation currently, and what to do to prepare for the uncertain.  She founded the Wealth Edit, a place where smart women come for community and to talk about money.  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-wealth-edit-podcast/id1502127604  It is a joy to know her and she is helping One Well Widow at a time!  https://www.onewellwidow.com/coaching-information
