How Healthy Is The Financial Path You Are On…

More than anything I wanted to leave my safe and steady full time job for the glamour of owning, my own business and writing full time. When I did just that last April I quickly realized it would be awhile before I would once again have a safe and secure feeling regarding my finances and the glamour moments are few and far between.

Writing is hard

I thought it would be a good idea to make an appointment with a financial planner. Being a midlife woman I knew I needed to up my retirement savings and at the same time I needed to know what debt I needed to pay down.

The appointment with the planner lasted about 30 minutes and he talked down to me the entire 30-minutes. He asked for a hefty retainer. I told him I needed to discuss it with my husband and he shooed me out the door.

A few days later I was introduced to a website, SUM180. I was honestly hesitant. Once on the site I felt comfortable. These are certified financial planners and they specialize in assisting women. They know what women think, need and buy.

SUM180 is a radically different kind of service with one goal: to make financial planning simple, affordable, and even fun – for every woman, wherever she is on her financial journey.

I was relieved when I realized how affordable the service is.
