It’s hard to pick a favorite project when we get the opportunity to work with such remarkable clients. Nearly every client we have the privilege to serve is a creative world changer, each making a positive difference in their own unique way. Every once in a while, however, a client comes along who just knocks my socks off in the inspiration department. Laura Amendola is one such person.
Laura is an experienced and highly successful financial advisor who opened her own firm in 2004. Having a personal connection and understanding for the financial planning and emotional needs of widows, Laura decided to launch Wealthcare4Widows.com this year. Her desire to help clients make sound financial decisions in the midst of grief stems from her own experience when at 17, she lost her father in a car accident and watched as her mother struggled with the very real challenges–personal and financial–faced by widows.
By focusing on the unique needs of widows through Wealthcare4Widows, Laura can provide much more than financial planning and investment handling for her clients. She is able to go beyond with a Co-Active coaching process that supports overall life enrichment for widows that aligns with each woman’s personal desires and values. Laura wants to make sure she empowers widows to find their own answers, in an encouraging and supportive environment so they can make solid decisions about their future, and have the support they need along the way.
Laura inspires me because as a successful president and owner of her own financial company, she didn’t need to take these extra steps to provide wellness and emotional support for her widowed clients. It’s something she felt in her heart she wanted to be able to provide, so she took the necessary steps to make sure she had the education and means to deliver these resources to not only her clients, but all widows who can benefit from the many resources she makes freely available through Wealthcare4Widows.com. This is going above and beyond to serve in a way that makes an average business something extraordinary. It’s a model for how any business can choose to make the world a better place.
Be sure to check out Laura’s new website, and visit her Facebook + Twitter pages for financial and wellness tips anyone can benefit from–especially those struggling with grief and loss. No one wants to think about life after loss, but it sure makes a world of difference to know there is someone as knowledgeable and caring as Laura Amendola there to guide us through when needed.
