    Jay, I thought your show with Amanda Grossman was so
    informative and relative. Financial literacy is so needed individually, as well
    as in our relationships with our partners. It is so hard to discuss money
    matters when your attitude about money is different from your partner’s. I plan
    to follow up on some of the great tips given by Amanda, as well as her blog and
    free kit. I wish she could have given some book recommendations, but much of
    what she stated about problems getting access should a love one die unexpectedly
    I found in a book I read by Suzie Orman. I would recommend that book for
    anyone, especially a woman seeking basic financial knowledge to protect herself
    and her family. The book is entitled, “Women & Money: Owning the Power
    to Control Your Destiny”. This podcast was a refreshing prospective on
    relationships and I am always pleasantly surprised when you bring up
    relationship issues that are seldom discuss, but truly need to be discussed
    more. Thank you Jay and your guest for such a wealth of knowledge. I pray this
    message will encourage your listeners to be more proactive in financial
