For years my husband wanted me to read the thick annual reports and retirement manuals he received from work. I would peek inside and tell him I couldn’t because they weren’t written in English (they were in broker-ese). I decided to try getting something from our public library that was more “at my level”. Your book “Smart Women Finish Rich” was fabulous, but the title scared my husband. Maybe he was glad I wasn’t also reading murder mysteries? I was excited to discover I COULD understand this stuff.
When I was looking for a lifecareer change after 9/11, I actually applied for an advisor training position with American Express. I got the job, and also became a financial advisor!! (Series 7, Series 66 and PA, NY, OH Life & Health licenses). WOW, who would have thought a middle-age woman with 8 kids could do this? I found a faith-based company to work with, am an independent FA now and building a practice. Your books are GREAT and I’ve requested info on becoming an instructor of your materials too. Thanks for a jump-start on a new life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
