We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Shivani Gopal, founder & CEO of The Remarkable Woman, a community that exists to help women achieve their goals – professionally, personally and financially.
There are many different matters that can place strain on relationships, and finances are one of them. For those who are chronically ill, finances can often stack up much faster and can place an added strain on relationships.
Understanding your finances, and where to get help if you need it, can make your relationship run more smoothly. Finding some time to focus on this will put you and your partner in a completely new space to manage your finances.
With a Pink Hope and COVID-19 lens, we asked Shivani for her top motivational and financial tips during these challenging times.
She answers key questions including:
- What can be most helpful when navigating a major life change – whether it be career, personal circumstance or dealing with a health crisis?
- What advice do you have to help people navigate a major financial challenge, like a cancer diagnosis, or dealing with the strain of COVID-19?
- For the Pink Hope community that are living through cancer and COVID-19, do you have any financial advice, for the present and future?
