There are over 10 million female-owned businesses in America. These companies
are generating more than $2.5 trillion dollars. Now more than ever, women
need to take control of their finances.
Women are more financially successful than ever before!
But even with all this success, women are still leaving their financial
futures in the hands of their husbands or ignoring it altogether. This
needs to stop.
Women’s financial needs are actually different from that of men.
Women face unique challenges that men don’t. For example:
- women live longer than men. On average, 7 years longer, so they need 20%
more retirement income;
- women earn about 25% less than men;
- since women are still the primary caretakers for children, more women than
men take time off to raise kids as well as care for aging parents, which
results in lower total earnings, reduced Social Security benefits and
- because of motherhood, women save less money than men;
- women are more conservative in their investments.
For women considering divorce you need access to money.
You will need to pay a retainer to hire an attorney or mediator to start
your divorce process.
I tell my clients it’s never too late or too soon to start financial
planning if you are thinking of divorce.
It’s time to start educating yourself. You need to take stock of
your household expenses, income, finances, investments and debts. If you
don’t know about the family finances, whether your husband has a
pension, where the assets are, or if your name is on the title of the
house, etc. It’s time to get informed. You can no longer live in the dark.
Eve, a mom of 3 and a chiropractor, called me because she wanted a divorce.
She explained she was embarrassed to admit she had allowed her husband,
a pharmacist, to handle all the finances. And she had no clue about their
money. I told her not to be embarrassed, and that this was not uncommon.
I further explained there were ways to figure this out, and that’s
what we did! She is divorced now, and she was grateful for the substantial
financial settlement I was able to help her receive.
