Show Notes

In this episode, we turn our attention to the future and hear about ‘How to be financially prepared for retirement with our guest Verena Metzler 🎙

Planning for retirement should feel like planning for an incredible weekend ... only the “weekend” lasts for the rest of our life, and the planning starts way in advance. Like, now.

🤔 Maybe you’ve never thought of retirement as a women’s issue, but with our healthier lifestyles and longer lifespans, women face dual challenges in terms of retirement security: longevity and wealth inequality. Women tend to live longer than men and earn less. What can we do?🤷‍♀️

In this episode, you will hear some sobering statistics and have a guest expert to help us avoid becoming just another one of these statistics. She’ll explain why we need to plan our retirement game as soon as possible, talk about whether it’s safe to rely 100% on social security for our in-retirement living expenses, and talk about other options, all with relatable examples so we aren’t lost in the confusion of the financial world. 🙅🏽‍♀️
