Article: The Power of Raw, Honest Stories About Money

New York Times Article by Ron Liebier

"Ms. Reynolds became an expert through the death of her husband, José, and the gut-wrenching period of logistical and financial madness that followed."

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.

Highly recommend!
