Women often overlook prioritizing their finances. As caregivers, they often prioritize the needs of others over their own needs. Also, women usually earn less, are less financially literate, are not in charge of their finances, and live longer than their partners. Ultimately women need more money. Yet, women can overcome these financial challenges.
Accepting the status quo is not OK; women must prioritize taking control of their finances now. Reading this article is an impactful first step to overcoming these financial challenges. A personalized financial plan and taking the steps set forth will help you overcome these financial challenges.
Increasing your financial literacy is important wherever you are on your financial journey. Always ensure you have a fiduciary financial advisor prioritizing and empowering you.
Get a library card from your local public library for free financial resources to increase your financial literacy and confidence. Libraries are a great resource to overcome women’s financial challenges and a perfect companion to your personalized financial plan.
As caregivers, prioritizing your finances is best for you and your loved ones. What you provide beyond the bare necessities does not reflect whether you are a good caregiver. A financial plan with an expense plan enables you to make better decisions. Your expense plan will help you determine what you can afford, make better decisions, and avoid financial regrets. Empowering yourself with your money will strengthen your financial future for you and your loved ones and your confidence.
The Blog, 3 Vital Steps To Planning Your Personal Finances, is a great starting point. Partnering with a fiduciary financial advisor can be a great starting point for your financial journey. If you already feel good about your finances, a “financial checkup” is great. Prioritizing yourself and your finances; will ultimately benefit your family, relieving financial stress.
The gender pay gap is a reality; knowledge and networking can help you overcome these challenges. Always know what value and bring it to your employer or clients. Taking a regular inventory of your value will help keep it top of mind for you. Accordingly, consider your inventory when negotiating an increase in your salary or the amount you charge others. Always knowing your “competition” will help you understand your value to others. Yes, the more reliable the data and numbers you get will determine your confidence and result in a better outcome.
Above all, networking is essential for everyone, regardless of whether they are working, and a LinkedIn account is a great start. Always keep your LinkedIn up to date. It is a great platform to enable you to connect with people. Take the time to leave sincere comments on the activity and posts of your connections. Besides, take the time to reconnect with those you worked with and ask for recommendations on your LinkedIn. Although you might think you do not need to do this now, know that you never know until you know.
Emphatically, women’s financial challenges during their wage-earning years also negatively impact their ability to save enough. As a result, women often need to set aside even more money in their later years just before retirement. Besides earning less, delaying retirement savings and living longer complicate this even more.
Also, whether you partner with someone or not, the best thing you can do is something right now. Delay is not your friend and makes the challenges difficult. Small or large steps can make a difference now; start now. Set attainable goals and plan the steps to take to reach those goals. Celebrating your wins will help you on your financial journey. Delay is not the answer. Consider if you save $360 a month, earning 3.6%. If you reinvest it for 18 years, you will have over $106,000. But, if you do this for 36 years, you will have almost three times as much money, over $308,000. Putting “your numbers” in a compound calculator will show you why now is the time.
