Who Am I? What Do I Do Now? HAPPILY EVEN AFTER Answers Real, Practical, Essential Questions for Widows and Widowers.
Even as these are the two most immediate questions faced by widow/ers, Carole Brody Fleet knows as well as anyone who has faced the abrupt change from couple to single person, those questions multiply exponentially as time goes on.
In HAPPILY EVEN AFTER: A Guide to Getting Through (and Beyond) the Grief of Widowhood, Brody Fleet addresses the most commonly asked questions by widows and those who surround them.
When Carole lost her husband at age forty, there were no resources that spoke directly to her needs as a young widow. The books she turned to spoke only about grief, but Carole knew that focusing on grief was going to keep her in a place of sorrow.
Twelve years later, she is the Founder and CEO of Widows Wear Stilettos, Inc., a non-profit organization and website founded in 2006 and devoted to service. With a monthly newsletter and her partnership in two annual conventions (lovingly referred to as Camp Widow™ and presented by the Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation), Carole’s brand is a recognized imprimatur of quality and trust among grief counselors, therapists and widows themselves.
The questions and issues surrounding the loss of a spouse are numerous and complex immediately following the death as well as months and years later. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are an estimated 15 - 20 million widows in this country and that number is rising. Over a million of those are under the age of forty. Carole Brody Fleet’s mission is to lead her readers and the entire widowed community (regardless of age, gender, "technical" marital status or sexual orientation) in a decidedly future-focused direction, giving them the tools, reassurance and confidence to move into a new life.

MyRA & GRA's vs. IRA's and 401(k)'s - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. One of the underlying questions for each topic on the show is whether it will help our listeners "Live the American Dream"? In past generations several retirement programs were introduced to provide a safety net as people retire. Among those were "defined benefit plans" like government Social Security and company pensions. Economic and financial uncertainties plus bankruptcies led to eliminating or dramatically reducing most company plans. Likewise we see Social Security plans throughout the world facing bankruptcy, depletion or a reduction of benefits.
In the meantime we've seen an expansion of "defined contribution plans" that put more control in the hands of the beneficiary. Those who learn to invest wisely have the opportunity become wealthy, those who would rather watch TV than learn about investing, will have to depend on the government Social Security during retirement. Our guest Teresa Ghilarducci has proposed an expansion of the US government's role in pension plans, probably at the expense of avid savers & investors.
Prof. Ghilarducci is the author of "When I'm Sixty Four", the Bernard L. and Irene Schwartz Chair in economic policy analysis at the New School, and a prime driver behind GRA's and MyRA's announced in the President's 2014 State of the Union address. What is a GRA? Should you setup a MyRA? What happens to the $17 Trillion currently invested in retirement plans? Will her proposal help you "Live the American Dream?" Or will it merely spread your wealth to others?

Protecting your Intellectual Property (IP) - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this show we'll discuss a topic for listeners who ever had a valuable idea. And for those of you whose future income is dependent on one or more of those successful ideas ... it's a critical topic. Would you buy a car without the car's title? Could you imagine where Bill Gates would be now if he launched Microsoft Windows and his company didn't own the rights to it?
We've asked Barbara Luther, founder and owner of The Luther Law Firm in Scottsdale AZ, to be our special guest to cover this important topic. She specializes in Intellectual Property (IP) Protection and has helped hundreds of individuals and companies worldwide secure patents. Whether you're an inventor, entrepreneur, author, business owner, corporate executive, creative employee, or even a retired "tinkerer", you won't want to miss this show.
Have you ever wondered why some companies are successful even though they weren't first to market? Will a patent in the US protect you against knockoffs coming from China? What's the difference between a registered Trade Name & a Trademark? What if someone use your web domain in other countries? How can you protect some of the articles and presentations with original ideas? How about some of your best sayings? For the answer to these and many more questions, grab a cup of coffee, or glass of wine and join the conversation …
