Keisha and her husband at a young age were very focused on early retirement and nurturing their brand new family. At 34, Keisha and her husband welcomed a brand new baby into the world and becoming an executive was just in sight for Keisha. When their baby was eight weeks old, her husband became very ill and died suddenly. She was unprepared as she and her husband had no will or estate plan.
They later came to the conclusion that he had a very rare disease. This disease was so rare that a year after her husband died, an international medical team had to get together to diagnose the disease.
This series of events shook Keisha’s world and drove her straight into writing. There she was able to share her struggles and deepest thoughts surrounding the tragic experience she went through.
In this episode we talk about her new book, Holistic Wealth: 32 Life Lessons To Help You Find Purpose, Prosperity, and Happiness. Keisha walks us through her financial journey and the types of teams she worked with, in creating a healthy financial future for her children and herself as she did not have a will or estate plan in place when her husband passed suddenly.
I am incredibly moved by the major financial moves she has made out of a tragedy she wasn’t prepared for. If you or someone you love is not prepared for a sudden passing, give them the tools to get a plan in place so everyone, including yourself, is safeguarded for the longterm.
