Co-Sponsored by Hospice of Marin Decisions made in the chaotic 30 days after a loved one dies can have a profound and lasting consequence, but navigating financial bureaucracy in a state of grief can feel impossible. Out of his own agonizing experience, Scott Smith was inspired to create When Someone Dies: The Practical Guide to the Logistics of Death ($16.00), the first complete and essential resource for dealing with the concrete details that surround the death of a loved one. This remarkably comprehensive and informative guide that educates readers quickly and compassionately, allowing them to spend more time on healing and less on navigating logistics. Scott Smith is a partner in Viant Capital, a San Francisco-based boutique investment bank and tech business incubator committed to providing emerging growth and small to mid-market companies with high quality strategic advisory and capital-raising services. When Someone Dies is his first book.
