Welcome to the Financial Confidence for Women, for Life Blog! I’m looking forward to sharing insights, tips, news, and inspirational stories with you that can help you achieve financial confidence.
A little about me…
I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ based in Orange County, California and have been working with women and their finances for the past 25 years. I am passionate about helping women become financially confident because, as a study by Prudential Research shows:
- Fewer than two in 10 women feel “very prepared” to make wise financial decisions
- Half indicate that they “need some help”
- One-third feel that they “need a lot of help”
So if you feel overwhelmed by the prospect of planning for your financial future, you are not alone! But, as natural caretakers, women are uniquely gifted to make excellent long-term financial decisions for their families. Women tend to be more focused on the whole picture when it comes to finances and are willing to make the changes necessary to ensure long-term stability for themselves and their families.
The most important thing to know is: you don’t have to have everything in order or a lot of assets to get started. In this blog, I plan to address some of the financial issues and decisions women face on a daily basis (retirement planning, saving for college, changing jobs, navigating a divorce, etc.). I welcome your suggestions on topics and hope that this information will inspire you to make progress toward your own financial goals!
