What Every Woman Needs to Know– Everyone uses money, but not everyone approaches it the same way. This group education class will explore the differences in how women approach money; how our thoughts and feelings, and even our fears, both help and hinder us. We can learn to take advantage of our unique ways of decision making, and also our approaches to the risks and rewards of personal finance. Consider this issue that affects women the most: since we live longer than men, but still tend to earn less over a life-time, what’s a woman to do? This workshop will help you figure it out!
