One day, my mom asked me to go to her financial planner to talk about retirement. She didn’t actually need my help; she just needed support to feel confident in the conversation. She needed a wingwoman.
There is a huge wealth gap for women – we earn less, we live longer, we are more likely to support dependents, and have less in the bank. But why? In many studies, women outperform men as investors and savers. Personal finance is not rocket science.
Perhaps, you just don’t feel like money talk is for you. Perhaps, it’s intimidating to figure out alone. Perhaps the “experts” are gross. Perhaps, you have a million things to do.
Perhaps, you just need a wingwoman.
