The GYST High Functioning Happy Hour

Join Chanel Reynolds each month for a free, low-stress and no-strings gathering to learn more about getting our shit together - together.

The high functioning happy hour gatherings were created by Get Your Shit Together founder Chanel Reynolds in 2014. A HFHH provides an opportunity to join a real-life conversation and causal gathering for folks who prefer a more personal starting point to discuss these more serious documents and plans. We know we need to do it - many of us just have a hard time getting it done.

Get Your Shit Together This Year

Join us at our free, monthly High Functioning Happy Hour

Thursday, July 21st

We are thrilled to be joined by award-winning Jewish educator end-of-life advocate, Rabbi Melanie Levav, Executive Director of the Shomer Collective.

July's High Functioning Happy Hour offers a special focus on wisdom and advice for families navigating the monumental stage when your children become (legal) adults. You'd come away from this gathering more informed about the practical, legal and emotional preparations that will better prepare everyone for this important journey.

High Functioning Happy Hour: What do we do?

A High Functioning Happy Hour is a one-hour, zero-pressure gathering. Chanel will share an overview of the essential end of life planning basics like wills, living wills, healthcare directives, and what-if emergency plans. Join Chanel Reynolds (and sometimes special guests) for stories and guidance and learn how and where to begin.

  • What Will We Learn? Lots! We'll make sure to leave time for questions, but we plan to cover:

  • What happens if I die without a will?

  • What’s the difference between a will and a living will?

  • How much does it cost to get this done?

  • Where do I store it and who should have a copy?

  • How do I find out if my parents have their documents done?

Opinion: Catastrophe struck when my husband was killed. Here’s what I learned about creating a ‘what if’ plan

by Chanel Reynolds

Four years after my husband was killed in an accident. I had mostly gotten my sh-t together (completed my will and power of attorney documents, created an emergency fund, got more life insurance, specified my end-of-life wishes, recorded important account and password information, etc.) and encouraged my parents, friends (and the whole world via my website Get Your Sh*t Together) to make it easier on everyone after they die, too.
