Are you a smart investor?

You may be aware that today women live longer than men and have specific challenges for feeling financially secure. Nearly 90% of women, many of whom are single, will be responsible for their own financial world at some point in their lives (usually when they are in their elder years). Don't wait around for someone to gallop along on a white horse or keep going to the bank of mom and dad to support you or to make your financial decisions. Invest in you. Do it by learning how to become financially self-sufficient. To be financially secure you need to set some strategies and goals to provide for retirement or for children's educational expenses, medical emergencies, travel, or investing in a home. Whether you are dealing with a low than average paycheck, an ex who has not come through with the appropriate (or any) alimony or child support payments, or are financially responsible for your aging or ill parents, you need to know how to and what to invest in to feel comfortable financially.

Aleg! Hi! You have a very valid point to make and I appreciate your thoughts. One should remain aware about her future and should save and invest for the rainy days. You never know what is going to happen tomorrow. Investment in stock and securities as per the funds available, but one should make it a point to save regularly and invest thereafter. Hope everyone takes a leaf from your valuable advice. Have a great day! Dpk

yes, you're right on that saving for rainy days. Women should be smart enough to earn to help in the family kitty or involve herself in business so she will be ready for any eventuality.

we ladies need to be self dependent in case of marital problems. I have always earned my own money and do not depend on support from my husband.
