In 2011, coach and author Jane Duncan Rogers was devastated when her husband died. However, six years later, with two books and a TedX talk to her credit, she now runs her not-for-profit, “Before I Go Solutions.” Its mission is to create a world where people are at ease talking about and planning ahead for death. It helps accomplish this by providing products and programs so people can create a good end-of-life plan and benefit from the peace of mind this brings.
