Women need to thoroughly arm themselves early in their lives to the world of economics. Although it is best done at a young age, it is never too late to learn. You might not think it is a fun thing to do, but it is far worse to have someone rip you off. I’m often told by married women that they sign the IRS tax statement each year without ever looking at it. Some don’t even know how much their husbands earn. That IRS statement is exactly the place where you can find out all you need to know – how much earnings, savings, investments, losses, gains and many other details that are necessary when figuring out your financial future.
Obviously, too many women I know depend on their husbands to do all the financials. Not good! Of course, you trust your husband – that is, until he decides to take off with the young secretary in his office and has emptied all the accounts. Or if he dies and leaves a financial mess that he had always intended to take care of and never did. With your participation, you can see to it that all is in place before sickness, desertion or death forces you into catastrophic circumstances.
Women. Take charge of your life!! Your financial future may depend on it.
