Kathleen Rehl, PhD, CFP®, is a leading authority on the subject of widows and financial planning. She will be the featured speaker at a workshop and luncheon in Asheville on Friday, February 21, 2014.
Dr. Rehl is a speaker, coach, and author of “Moving Forward on Your Own: A Financial Guidebook for Widows.” Formerly a financial planner for ministry clients, her world changed forever when her husband died in 2007, followed soon thereafter by her mother’s death. From her personal grief experiences, Kathleen’s life purpose evolved – helping other widows to feel more secure, enlightened and self-confident about their financial matters.
In the workshop, which is open to the public, Dr. Rehl will explain how grief sabotages thinking and decision making, three stages of widowhood and money implications, financial steps for recent widows, money pitfalls to avoid and more.
Dr. Rehl and her book “Moving Forward on Your Own” (http://www.kathleenrehl.com) have been featured in almost three dozen popular magazines, newspapers, and professional journals. These include The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Kiplinger’s, AARP Bulletin, U.S. News & World Report, Consumer Reports, Investment News, Bottom Line and many others. The guidebook has received 10 national and international awards.
The workshop is being presented by the Women’s Financial Empowerment Center of OnTrack Financial Education & Counseling and is sponsored by Doll & Associates Long Term Care Insurance Services, Davis Financial Planning, and WNC Geriatric Care Management.
It will be held on Friday February 21st at the First Baptist Church from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. followed by lunch. The cost is $20 and includes lunch and a free copy of “Moving Forward On Your Own.” Preregistration by February 14th is required — call Dawn at 828-225-9585 or via e-mail Dawn@LTConly.com.
