I recently found a list of 5 Money Mistakes Women Should Avoid at Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER). This list highlights common blunders women make with their personal finances. Let me make a note that men can make these mistakes, too.
YOU have to be responsible for YOU… no one cares as much about your money or your future as you do. So make sure you talk about the family finances with your spouse. Make sure you put your retirement ahead of your kids and grandkids. (They can borrow money for school, but you can’t borrow money for retirement). And above all, get out of debt! The best legacy you can leave behind is a debt-free one!
