Life is good, maybe even close to perfect. Then one day the phone rings, and everything changes. Jan Yanehiro had everything she'd dreamed of - career, family, money, and more. Suddenly it all turned upside down. Faced with the death of her husband, the loss of her ideal job, and financial ruin, she found strength and support from other women dealing with similar struggles. Together they buoyed one another through the turbulent times, and found a wealth of tips, guidelines, and resources that all of us can use to survive whatever life throws our way. With practical advice about getting on top of your finances, tips for bringing more laughter into your life, and everything in between, Ms. Yanehiro reminds us, "It's incredible the fortitude that women can have. We just need to have our friends to surround us, and tell us how much we have." Listen as she surrounds you with her own vibrancy and delight, and a loving invitation to recognize your own strength and keep your dreams alive. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
