When Zahra lost her husband to cancer in 2015, her world came crashing down.  Even as a financial professional for over 20 years, Zahra still found it initially challenging to play an active role in her finances. 

Recognizing that other women were struggling with the same issues, Zahra’s journey led her to becoming a Financial Empowerment Coach.  She now empowers women to build true wealth, crushing the patriarchy $1 at a time. 

This episode was truly enlightening for both Shaista and I! 

 Be sure to listen for:

  • What happened to Zahra financially after her husband passed away
  • Zahra’s easy to implement money saving tips
  • Strategies for building wealth on a fixed income
  • Techniques and mindset shifts to clear subconscious money blocks
  • How to build financial literacy in our children

About Our Guest

Zahra Khakoo is a Widow, Mother, Daughter and Financial Empowerment Coach, Author and Public Speaker. 

In 2015 she lost her husband to cancer when he was only 44 years old.  At the time, their daughter was five years old and Zahra’s world came crashing down. 

She learned from this experience that life is not eternal and that you need to live in the moment.

As a financial professional for over 20 years, Zahra has seen first hand how often women let fear stop them from taking an active role in their finances. This leaves them furthering the wage gap and leaving millions of dollars on the table. 

This is why Zahra is so passionate about helping women build wealth and crush the patriarchy $1 at a time. Zahra loves to write, speak and empower other women to take control of their lives.

Zahra’s first book Lucky with Money was released on November 5th, 2021 in the kindle version. The hard copy version will be released in late February, 2022.
