We’re joined on the Starline by a woman who had a project postponed by the Iranian revolution, was the foursquare mayor of Tipping Points Partners and want you to organize your life in case you get hit by a bus. We welcome Abby Schneiderman

Let’s go Beyond the Mic, Abby, in the book you co-wrote with Adam Seifer “In Case You Get Hit by a Bus” you write about the plans we all need to take care of, but never do. You were working on Everplans before your brother died in an accident. How did that tragedy change the path you were on?

As COVID-19 hit, the needs for planning has been more amplified, how can your book help people before it is too late?
