When her website launched in 2013, Reynolds captured global media attention with numerous interview requests, from a widely shared New York Times interview and video, to a NPR radio interview, and an interview on CBS This Morning. The popularity of Get Your Shit Together has now led to her debut book WHAT MATTERS MOST: The Get Your Shit Together Guide to Wills, Money, Insurance, and Life’s “What-ifs” (Harper Wave) which draws on her intimate personal experience, expert advice, and unparalleled resources. Blending personal narrative with hard-working information, WHAT MATTERS MOST expands, contextualizes, and illuminates challenges such as:

  • Creating legal documents like a will and living will
  • Updating (or finally getting) a life insurance policy
  • Keeping track of online accounts and passwords
  • Starting or growing an emergency fund
  • Keeping secure, up-to-date records of personal information

Chanel’s work has motivated millions of people worldwide to prepare for life’s major curveballs and offers the candid, approachable, profoundly practical guide we all need.
