Managing Alone is an estate planning tool, written by the mother daughter team at DFS Private Wealth.
After developing Widowed.ca we realized there still wasn’t anything else out there that would provide simple financial guidance to a widow or widower during such a difficult time. The book is easy to read. It is composed of stories of people who have come to us after the death of their spouse and have been interested in sharing their stories to help others avoid potential problems that they faced.

Managing Alone illustrates how you don’t have to be alone when it comes to handling your finances after losing someone you care deeply about. This book uses anecdotal situations to explore options, is easy to comprehend and provides great advice.

I could relate to all the stories and advice throughout the book. I would recommend this book to anyone that has recently lost their spouse. I wish that it had been available when I became a widow – it would have saved me from some painful mistakes that cost me a lot of money.

Managing Alone is simply the most comprehensive and compelling resource for Canadians who have experienced the loss of a spouse. Black and Baccarani’s long and distinguished careers helping widows master their finances, speaks to how this book came to be written, what they believe and why they are distinguished thought leaders on a subject so many advisors have shied away from.
