Money Matters: A woman's future dreams take financial planning
I have never met a mom who wasn’t working – or any other woman for that matter. More than ever before women are handling their own or their family’s finances. It’s not about what you have; it’s what you do with it to secure your future.
We all have unique needs and resources, but everyone wants to protect what they’ve worked so hard to acquire. It’s all about taking what you have, making the most of it, and building a solid financial future that is uniquely yours. A woman has different financial needs than a man. Everyone must face the good news that women live longer and the potentially bad news that they will spend more years in retirement than the last generation.
Why is that bad news? More years in retirement could mean potentially outliving your nest egg. Women, having greater life expectancies than men, must place a greater emphasis on planning for retirement and long term care to ensure they have saved enough to last through their golden years. That’s why State Farm has a special website just for women called the State Farm Red Portfolio It’s all about you, your finances, and your dreams for the future, and how to make the most of what you have.
Whether you want to buy a new home, fund a child’s education, protect your business interests, or save for a comfortable retirement, the Portfolio website is a great place to start.
But it’s just a start. You should work with a trusted professional who can be your long-term resource for help with your financial goals. Schedule a meeting to explore your goals and begin building a road map for your financial future. It’s never too late or too early to start securing your financial future. The sooner you develop a plan that fits your situation, the more likely you are to achieve your goals and be able to do the things you really want to do when you retire.
So why wait? The clock is ticking and it is time to set your goals and achieve them! Remember, it’s not what you have; it’s what you do with it that can make all the difference.
