Things do not get better by leaving your finances alone. In fact, my experience is that the longer you ignore your financial circumstances, the worse things gets.

There’s absolutely nothing more grueling than dealing with financial hardship.
On the flip side, I’ve seen the immense relief that comes with finally facing reality and taking charge of your finances.
For women, the consequences of not dealing with our money are compounded in retirement.
By retirement age, the average working female has saved only fifty-nine percent of what her male counterpart has saved, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office. This means nearly twice as many retired women live in poverty than men, according to WISER research.
Ladies, it is totally in our control to not become one of these statistics.
Just remember this:
Financial avoidance = stress.
Making a decision + taking action = financial peace.
So, go ahead, make a committed decision. Then take empowered action. I know you can do it!
You got this!
