This is Our Story, Maybe Yours, Too?
Welcome girlfriends. I'm Patty Gale and if you are a woman navigating midlife transitions, welcome to your new home to help you live your best life on your terms, and achieve financial independence, 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.
What I Discovered During Those Precious Talks1. 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 DoYou deserve the best life has to offer. In our 20's and 30's, we had great intentions, and then life happened along the way.
MidLife transitions such as divorce, widowhood or unexpected career change will be experienced by 2/3rds of women ages 40-70. (*AARP)
I've been there, too, and it's never too late to begin again, to achieve financial independence, even without a million dollar retirement account.
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 midlife transitions.
As a financial strategist, I help women, like you, who are navigating these midlife transitions, to live your best life on your terms.
You got this!
