Women and men may not be on equal footing when it comes to investing for the future. On average, women work fewer hours and earn less than men—however, women also tend to live longer. Therefore, women must focus on the concerns that are unique to them when planning for retirement. In this episode, I will be explaining the steps you can take as a woman navigating her finances to ensure that you are properly prepared for your future.

Listen in as I share the common obstacles women have to overcome in finances, why you should actively participate in any programs available for retirement through your employer, and the importance of putting your needs first when it comes to finances.
