If your partner died today, would you have your shit together? Today’s guest is Chanel Reynolds. She’s the author of the brand new book What Matters Most: The Get Your Shit Together Guide to Wills, Money, Insurance and Life’s “What-Ifs.” After Chanel’s husband passed away unexpectedly, she realized she had no idea how to access any of their financial documents. She didn’t know how to pay her mortgage. She didn’t even have the password to his phone. And, as she was in the middle of the worst moment of her life, she couldn’t help but think that there must be other people out there who were just as unprepared as she was.
She started writing about her experiences on her website aptly called Get Your Shit Together. What followed was tons of website visitors, mentions in the medias, and hundreds of stories from people who, much like her, were unprepared for life’s most brutal moments.
Although she never expected to be in this position, Chanel has used a tragedy and has used it as a tool to help others be more prepared than she was.
