To her surprise, her husband’s estate was not set up properly, and as a result, she was left with nothing. With twins on the way, she had no time to fall apart and mourn. Instead, she took charge of her life and built a successful career as a financial advisor and business owner. She knows first-hand the struggles of being a single woman and single mother. Recently remarried, she has also discovered the challenges and successes of blending a family.

women not only survive these setbacks but to also help them embrace their financial and life goals and dreams. Janice provides her clients with a sense of balance in their work, personal, and financial lives. Janice earned a BA from the University of Arizona and also has a MA in Business Administration and a MA in Counseling and Guidance.
Let's talk about Money: The Girlfriends Guide to Protecting her Assets
Money—Is it the Last Taboo?
Today people tweet about everything from health to sex to what they had for dinner last night. Reality shows and social media invite us to share intimate and embarrassing secrets. So why is the topic of money still taboo?
Can We Talk?
Let’s Talk About Money: The Girlfriends’ Guide to Protecting Her ASSets changes all that. Frank and personable, it’s the first book of its kind to prepare women for the most important financial discussions in their lives. Work, marriage, divorce, retirement, parents, kids—all are complicated enough without bringing money into the picture. But we can’t afford to avoid the big questions: Am I saving enough? Should I sign a prenup—or get him to sign one? Can I get a raise? How do I talk to my parents about their estate?
Whatever the topic, the smart woman comes to the table empowered with insight and information. And that’s exactly what she’ll find in Let’s Talk About Money: The Girlfriends’ Guide to Protecting Her ASSets.
Stephen Kinzer, Author and Journalist; Senior Fellow, Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs presents his new book The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain and the Birth of American Empire.
Are Americans imperialists or isolationists? Whether the United States should intervene and lead, or show global restraint, is a recurring theme of US foreign policy, argues Stephen Kinzer. This debate may be more pertinent now, as President-elect Donald Trump formulates his global strategy. From the imperialist invasions of the 19th and 20th centuries, to the more recent interventions overseas, any action the United States takes has major global reverberations. Why has the United States oscillated between intervening and restraining in an increasingly complex international system? What does the past tell us about our future?

We will be at PAWS Chicago with Jane Sobel Klonsky and her book Unconditional: Older Dogs, Deeper Love.
About Jane Sobel Klonsky:
Jane Sobel Klonsky launched her photography career in 1976 as the first photographer to scale the cables to the top of the Verrazano Bridge to get a shot of the start of the New York City Marathon. Jane was the Marathon's official photographer for the next 10 years, and for nearly thirty years was a major player in the world of commercial and sports photography. Her work has taken her around the world to Kenya to shoot photos of a family of Masaai Warriors, to record an international running competition in Tokyo, and to chronicle the untouched beauty of far-reaching places like Papua New Guinea and Myanmar (Burma). Her award-winning photographs have been published widely and have been the subject of several books, including one based on a 50,000 mile cross-country photographic tour of rural America taken with her photographer husband, Arthur, and two Great Danes. She continues to do extensive work for Getty Images. Mother to up-and-coming filmmaker Kacey, she lives with her husband, their two therapy dogs, Charlie and Sam, and a cat, Humphrey, in rural Vermont.
About Unconditional: Older Dogs, Deeper Love:
This captivating collection of photographs and anecdotes is a one-of-a-kind celebration of humans’ special bond with, and love for, older dogs. Since 2012, photographer Jane Sobel Klonsky has traveled the United States with one mission: to capture images and stories that focus on the powerful relationship between dogs in the twilight of their lives and the people who love them.
