This is Our Story, Maybe Your Story, Too?
Welcome girlfriends. I'm Patty Gale and if you are a midlife woman navigating divorce, welcome to your new home to help you go from financial chaos to financial clarity.
Perhaps we've been been in the same shoes. I've experienced being married, divorced, a single mom for 11 years, remarried and almost divorced a second time.
While my life looked great on the outside, I was a hot mess on the inside, as were my finances. During the years in financial survival mode, I felt more alone, isolated and frustrated than ever. Eventually, I was like a volcano ready to explode. Maybe you can relate?
When I started confiding into close girlfriends, I discovered more and more women in our age group are in similar situations, experiencing later-in-life divorce and living quiet lives of financial despair. When I started talking, they felt free to open up and share their stories, too. All they needed was someone to start the conversation first.
What I Discovered During Those Precious Talks1. The number of professional middle and upper-income women struggling with debt are rising faster than lower income women.
2. The embarrassment and shame associated with personal financial crisis prevents women from reaching out and talking with other women or professionals.
3. Many professional midlife women are living in silent confusion, anxiety and fear.
Here's Why I Do What I Do
Did you know that 25% of professional women in the United States will live her senior years in poverty? That is completely unacceptable.
You deserve all the best life has to offer you! And I refuse to allow women, like you, become financially dependent on her kids, family or the government.
It takes someone who has been in similar shoes as yours, coupled with personal finance expertise, to understand where you've been, where you are, where you're going and how to get you there as you navigate divorce.
Your journey through financial recovery during and after divorce doesn't have to be complicated and you don't have to go it alone.
That's where I come in.
