When Jennifer Risher joined Microsoft in 1991, she met her husband, and with him became an extra-lucky beneficiary of the dot-com boom. By their early thirties, they had more money than they could wrap their heads around. Jennifer’s thought-provoking, personal story includes the voices of others like her and explores the hidden impact of wealth on identity, relationships, and sense of place in the world. In sharing her story, Jennifer aims to validate the emotional complexities of money and help those with wealth move out of guilt, shame, or a desire to keep money hidden and into meaning, joy, and purpose. At a time of extreme economic and racial inequality, money shouldn’t remain a taboo subject. Jennifer’s engaging, introspective memoir is essential reading: a catalyst for conversation that demystifies wealth and inspires us to connect.
