Life in HD
Women and Personal Finances
According to a recent report from CNN Money, 56% of married women leave investment and long-term financial planning to their husbands, and 85% of women who defer to their husbands feel that their spouses are more educated on financial matters. As a result, many women are shocked to learn the true financial picture when major life events like death of a spouse, divorce, or job loss happen. This episode of Life in HD features a conversation with Kathy Longo, author of Flourish Financially: Values, Transitions, and Big Conversations. She is also President and founder of Flourish Wealth Management. She offers advice on how women can and should get more involved in managing their personal finances.
