Career & Money

Career & Her Money.  Women and work is a constantly changing cycle with ups and downs throughout your lifetime. Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, we are seeing what economists are calling a she-cession. The work sectors that have been crippled are disproportionately dominated by women. Many professional women have had to take a step back to care for kids who are learning remotely or older parents who need help and the result is that women have put their financial progress back decades.

Women from all backgrounds face daunting challenges to their financial well-being, including income inequality, inadequate retirement savings, and the impact of caregiving on lifetime income and spending.   

Women of all socio-economic levels are far more likely than men to lack the knowledge and confidence to make informed, proactive decisions that best secure their financial security. That is why Savvy Ladies helps women from all socio-economic levels learn and understand how to navigate and tackle the job search, get tips on interviewing prep and how to answer the question about salary. Learn about what makes up your paycheck, withholding, and social security.  Get ready to embrace your career growth and master your money plans.
