It is Sisters in Loss Fertility Awareness Month! One week in April is not enough to acknowledge the 1 in 10 women and couples who experience infertility. As black women this number is far less and I want to acknowledge those who struggle to get pregnant and stay pregnant during the month of April.
In today's episode we have Patrice Washington, "America's Money Maven." who opens up and shares her infant loss story, secondary infertility journey, and how to Redefine Wealth. Patrice is a national recognized best selling author, transformational speaker, spokesperson, radio host and leading authority on personal finance, entrepreneurship and success for women. You may have heard Patrice on the Steve Harvey Morning Radio show where she hosts a weekly segment called Real Money Answers with Patrice Washington. Patrice is the big sister in my head that gets me together, snatches my edges, and teaches me how to Chase Purpose and Not Money on her new weekly podcast called Redefining Wealth. In this interview Patrice shares her infant loss journey with us, how she lost everything during the recession while she was pregnant with her rainbow baby daughter, and how she is surrendering to God for her desire to have more children after experiencing secondary infertility. I could not have Patrice on this episode without discussing money and we talk about what it means to Redefine Wealth and her definition of her 6 pillars of wealth.
