building financial confidence in your familyI was thrilled to recently be a part of “The Karen Walrond Show,” a web TV show with episodes at CafeMom.com.

The topic of our discussion was “building financial confidence”.  Karen made the point – which I often find to be true – that many women handle their family’s day to day finances (like balancing the checkbook), but feel intimidated when it comes to investments and retirement.

The show is obviously geared toward moms, but my advice on getting started is pretty universal:

  • Know Your Net Worth
  • Have an Emergency Fund
  • Save for Retirement

Please check it out and let me know what you think!
