Starting the Conversation

“The secret is … it’s just not that hard.”

What are we talking about? The discussion about money and retirement. So if it’s not that hard, what’s stopping the majority of women from talking about their finances and financial futures? Perhaps it’s a lack of confidence. Or a lack of time. Or simply not knowing where to start. Whatever it is that’s causing the foot dragging, it affects the majority of women. And that simply means the conversation is not taking place at all. Which is a serious issue as women have greater retirement needs; they live longer than men and often have to make up for lost years when they take time out to raise a family.

What to do? Start by talking. Begin the conversation. Learn. Educate yourself. Take charge.
