My motto is “Make Informed Decisions”! Many women I have worked with over the last 25 years have put their faith in the notion that “It will work out.” Sometimes things do – but often things do not work out as originally planned! People tend to invest little energy into understanding the impact important life decisions may have on a person’s financial future, particularly in the longer term. What I have seen is life events do happen, often quickly, and most times are completely out of a person’s control – and often have significant financial fallout. Being proactive and planning for the “what ifs” is emplowering. I am proud to be part of the WINK Speakers Series, whose key goal is to educate women. Only through education can women make informed choices that will allow them to truly take control of their financial future.
