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.

It took a long time to pull it off, but by the time Tom Fabbri was 28 heI had made every life altering mistake a person could make. He drank too much, moved onto drugs, ruined a marriage, went bankrupt, went homeless, and finally ended up in jail. Looking up from that cold, hard place at the bottom – Tom decided to fix the life he had ruined. He had wasted his last minute and set out with purpose to become the person he should have been all along.
Since then Tom hasachieved every goal that he set. He became a Captain for a major airline as well as a Helicopter Pilot. HeI graduated from culinary school, had a TV gig as a guest chef, became a certified personal trainer, and a columnist for a fitness magazine. The formula was simple; if he wanted to do something, heI decided to do it….and then did it. It worked every time but it was only after fixing his life that Tom realized exactly how he had ruined it to begin with.
At 52 Tom is taking that wisdom with him on another life journey. Learn about Tom's newest journey on today's Boomer and The Babe Show. It promises to be an adventure.

Financial Literacy - Blame Yourself ! The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. We continue our series on Financial Literacy, focusing on YOU and paving your path to financial independence. Are you well on your way to becoming Wealthy? Are there some obstacles on that path? Is your level of Wealth DNA high enough to make it to your ultimate goal? Who are some of the people in your life who held you back?
For those who have not yet achieved financial independence, or concerned you'll never make it – we had several shows in this series aimed at finding the root cause. We decided blaming your parents may be accurate, but doesn't help. We then suggested blaming your teachers and schools – who probably didn't provide you the financial skills you need, but that didn't help either. So maybe you can blame your employer? Maybe your maker?
Our special guest Larry Winget will share the answer as to who to blame. Larry Winget, also known as the Pit Bull of Personal Development,is a straight shooter and won't mince words. He's the author of 6 bestseller books including: "Grow a Pair", "Shut up Stop Whining & Get a Life" , and "You're Broke because You want to be". He's worked with 400 of the Fortune 500 companies and has been a guest on CNN, MSNBC, Fox, PBS and many other programs. What's some of his advice to increase your Financial Literacy?
