This is Our Story, Maybe Yours, Too?
Welcome girlfriends. I'm Patty Gale and if you are a woman navigating midlife transitions such as divorce, widowhood or career change welcome to your new home to help you design a money story for a life you'll love, yes, even without a million dollar retirement account.
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. 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 are in similar situations 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.
1. The number of 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 women in midlife are living in silent confusion, anxiety and fear because of financial stress.
Here's Why I Do What I Do
These midlife transitions are hard, really hard, emotionally and financially. I know firsthand because I've been there, too.
I'm here to let you know you don't have to do this alone. 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.
Fear.less Girl Financial is for women, like you, who are navigating midlife transitions, to design a money story for a life you'll love.
