Take control of your finances. Don't do it alone.
Life in America has changed. When Social Security was first created, life expectancy was 62. Today, few of us are going to retire wtih a corporate pension. Life expectancy keeps increasing. Therefore, long term financial planning is going to have to become a top priority for individuals and families and especially for women.
On average, we live longer, are more likely to shift careers for our family, and work in lower paying fields than our male counterparts. However, as women, we are pre-programmed to take care of everyone else first. My mission is to help women take care of themselves, by taking control of their money before crisis strikes.
Unfortunately, many women wait to take an active part in their finances until after they have a major life event like a divorce or the death of a spouse. We've all watched someone we love go through that. I think we can agree that is the worst time to be going through the financial learning curve and making major financial decisions that could impact the rest of your life.
*The average life expectancy of an American woman is 81 per the 2013 OECD study. The average age of widowhood in the US varies between 55 to 60 depending upon the study. The fact remains that between death, divorce and disability, most adult women in America today will at some point be the head of their financial household.
That is why I want to help women get involved with their financial decisions from the start. I don’t want you to blindly hand over the reins of your life savings to me. I want to work with you to make sure your investments are where you want them to be and set up to do what you want them to do.
You have to take control of your finances, but you don't have to do it alone.
