Money Matters for Women! Many of us are marvelous mothers and wives. Many of us are successful businesswomen and well-trained professionals. Some of us have lost husbands to illness or accidents,
and many more of us are survivors of divorce - single, working moms who juggle jobs and family and the tension of trying to do it all and do it well. A growing number of us have chosen not to marry or have children - or at least not yet - and are taking care of ourselves by ourselves. Others of us are approaching or in retirement, and a few of us cope with both the benefits and burdens of inherited money.
But no matter who you are, and what challenges you face or successes you have had, you and every woman you know share one common goal: to protect and preserve your financial health and well-being.
Knowing how to manage your own money - how to save, spend, and invest wisely - requires understanding simple concepts that will transform what seems complicated and overwhelming jargon into a set of everyday skills, strategies and techniques that you can apply successfully with ease and confidence.
None of us learned this information in high school, college, or graduate school. Perhaps women weren't expected to become financially literate. Perhaps we didn't think we would have to be. But taking control of our financial lives is ultimately our individual responsibility and it's far easier to accomplish than you might think.
Money Matters for Women was designed specifically to meet the financial education needs of women just like you: to educate, inform and empower you as you take control of your financial present and future.

Money Matters for Women Seminars!
I heard Joan Kaplan speak at the Kent Library when she introduced Money Matters for Women to the community. Afterward I scheduled a private one-on-one meeting in my home. I immediately felt that she really cared about our financial situation and had a passion for guiding us to financial security. Her intuitiveness and direct approach helped me get a clear, positive view of our financial future. My husband and I continue to meet with her periodically. Personal money management is one of the most complicated and overwhelming challenges. To find someone so knowledgeable, clear and understanding is truly a blessing.
