What inspired the book 'Holistic Wealth'

Keisha talked about the viral article on Observer that inspired her book, Holistic Wealth: 32 Life Lessons to Help You Find Purpose, Prosperity, and Happiness. 

The 4 parts of Holistic Wealth (and why each are so important)

Keisha discusses the first part being the Intentional Life Purpose. Second comes Financial Independence which covers emotional, mental & spiritual aspects, and relationships that are enriching. It also refers to how you prepare for an emergency and not just about having finances. Third is Physical and Spiritual Nourishment and last, Goodwill and Strong Relationships.

How people who experience grief should pursue Holistic Wealth

Making bad financial decisions is an effect of trauma. Keisha talks about stepping back, establishing boundaries, and creating a personal mission statement after suffering a loss.

Finding the balance between "living like tomorrow isn’t promised" and "saving like you’ll live to 100"

Women are looking for a life of freedom over their time and money. Keisha deeps dive into the concept of building a Holistic Wealth Portfolio that helps balance finances with the other pillars in our lives.
