Fashion Design to "Financial Design"; a powerful and unexpected pivot.20 years into her design career at the renowned handbag company, Coach, Kim Cullen Black had just purchased a house when she was laid off.  In a family of 5 siblings, Kim was the one who was "just jobless", when their father passed away.  Every one of the other 4 was going through major health crises - either their own or their spouses.  It fell to Kim to help her mom pick up the pieces and figure out where she stood financially."Have you ever considered being a financial planner?"It was a question posed to her by the female financial planner she and her mom were working with. Kim gave a decisive "NO". Kim and I dive into the inspiring journey of resilience and reinvention amidst life's challenges.
