Divorce Conversations for Women


Divorce produces more stress for women than any other life event except for the death of a spouse. Even at the best of times, financial confidence may seem out of reach. It requires diligence and a deep understanding of your finances. For many of us that is a difficult, sometimes impossible task. We live in a complicated world. It’s not just a matter of income coming in and expenses going out. Having access to knowledge and sound information can provide you with the confidence to face those decisions from a place of clarity. Knowing where you are at today and what you need to do moving forward can allow you to be more confident through this difficult transition. Join us for practical financial knowledge, tools and inspiration to help you confidently move forward to your new destiny.
