Winning or Losing?

By Lu Casillas

Are we as women winning or losing in our financial house? Realistically as women we are making more money than ever before. We have made strides over the decades creating our own businesses and surpassing that glass ceiling. One thing that is getting overlooked in most cases ( statistically)  is the FUTURE.

If you had a magical ball and could see your financial future what would it look like?

Those that follow me have heard me speak about women wearing several hats.

Examples;

parent,child,babysitter,at home doctor,therapist,healer,listener,shopper,chef,housekeeper,animal sitter,caregiver,chauffeur…

This refers to what we as women handle on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. What is happening to us as we age gracefully? We have increased our income. However our children & parents are aging.

Some of you are the “Sandwich Generation” taking care of aging parents and parenting children.

Some are taking early retirement and allowing someone referred by your company to put all of that money at risk because your company doesn’t want fiduciary liability for the outcome of potential losses.

Some may be dealing with a career as well as being the caregiver for a parent. How do we juggle this without financial help?

It has been written that women are actually at risk for future financial danger! Isn’t it time to alleviate this risk? Retirement healthcare costs average $130,000 per person! This could be devastating.

How do we WIN in this game of life? It is crucial these days to be open to what is working that you are not being told enough about.

I am an advocate for Living Benefits and not all are created equally. These products can be a financial life saver. Insured products are your safety net. Don’t be afraid, Be PROACTIVE. Today we have tools that provide what yesterday’s tools cannot provide.
