Ep 13: Empowering Women to Get into Financial Services with Robyn Crane
80% of women leave their financial advisor if they become widowed. Why is this? For many women, the industry is not a welcoming place. On today’s episode, our guest, Robyn Crane, will be discussing why we need to have more women in the financial service industry and the importance of women in this field. Robyn is a highly recognized business growth expert and speaker, training women to make impacts in their professions. Robyn was a financial advisor for ten years and she entered the field wanting to help people align their values with their finances. But starting off in the industry Robyn knew she wanted to be a change maker. The sales process in financial services can often feel abrasive and pushy and she’s working to change that, to make women more comfortable in this industry as professionals and clients. Robyn started to approach sales in a different way. As opposed to just pushing sales she began to understand the needs of her clients and how she could better serve them and their values. Today, Robyn will break down her journey and the ways we can make financial services more inclusive. We also will discuss: ·       The way we sell in financial services and how we can alter the traditional approach to sales. ·       Serving women in ways that work best for them. ·       Getting women into the industry and keeping them in the industry. ·       What Robyn thinks will help change the industry Your Free Resource from Today's Show: about Robyn:  Listen to the full podcast or use the timestamps below to jump to a specific section. 1:19 – Welcome Robyn Crane!5:10 – Conversations about money 6:44 – What’s wrong with the traditional approach?11:20 – At what point did you make the shift?18:01 – The people we want to work with  23:28 – Women working with advisors 28:34 – What’s it going to take for the industry to change33:12 – Women are the market 39:25 – Understanding the human part of financial services42:48 – Any final thoughts?Resources:Find a Purse Strings Approved Professional - Click HereCheck out our Facebook Page - Click HereJoin our community of Financially  Fearless Women - Private Facebook Group

Ep 6: Women and the Real Estate Market with Aleta Saunders
Aleta Saunders joins us on today’s show to discuss women in the real estate market, advice she has for those looking to buy, and the importance of women protecting their assets. Aleta is an associate broker at PalmerHouse Properties and an experienced model with a global perspective and passion for helping women navigate the world of real estate. More women than ever are entering the real estate market to invest and own real estate on their own. With over 35 years of experience, Aleta has helped many women with buying and selling their dream homes throughout the Atlanta market. Her passion for real estate was driven by her mother and grandmother’s story. She wants to serve and protect women throughout the real estate market, a market they have historically been left out of. Many women were losing out in real estate as their husbands were the sole name on cars and homes. As Aleta worked with couples, she ensured women were better protected by either having their name on the loan or deed, ensuring both partners had a say in what happened to their home. However, our current market looks a lot different. Women are making strides in real estate, purchasing more than ever. Most of Aleta’s clients are now women and she's helping them navigate the market, protect their assets, and invest in their future. Join us today as we discuss: Aleta was raised by her grandmother and mother How women have struggled in the real estate market Are women being charged differently?When did women start buying more homes?The importance of women protecting their money The advice she has for first-time homebuyers Learn more about Aleta: to the full podcast or use the timestamps below to jump to a specific section. 1:29 – Aleta’s grandmother’s home 7:31 – She started in 19888:04 – Insights to women and real estate10:00 – A lot of people didn’t know 11:28 – Being on the loan or deed12:08 – More women are entering real estate16:10 – When did women start buying more?20:12 – Advice for first-time homebuyers23:20 – Aleta selling her home in 200827:32 – Learning to live differently 30:50 – A client example from Aleta 33:58 – Do your homework 35:25 – Where to find Aleta Resources:Find a Purse Strings Approved Professional - Click HereCheck out our Facebook Page - Click HereJoin our community of Financially  Fearless Women - Private Facebook Group

A lot of stress can come from our relationships and finances but Lisa is helping women work through these stresses to have healthier and wealthier lives. Lisa will explain how we can all have healthier conversations around the topic of money with our partners.

Ep 4: The Value of a Spousal IRA with Gigi Verrey
Are you a stay-at-home mom or are you thinking about leaving the workforce? Are you worried it will impact your financial benefits and retirement future? Many women haven’t heard of a Spousal IRA and its benefits for those outside the traditional workforce. On today's episode, Gigi Verrey, the VP of wealth management at GCG Financial, joins us to discuss the one financial investment that all stay-at-home moms need to have. If you are married and filing jointly, you can take advantage of this investment tool. It’s not a joint account, it’s similar to a regular IRA or Roth IRA.  By virtue of you being a spouse, your partner can contribute money into the Spousal IRA for your future, as long as your combined income is greater than the amount you can put away. The money in this account is your money, even if you end up getting a divorce. We’ll discuss the value of this great retirement tool, how the investments work, and more with Gigi. Having a retirement account in your own name comes with power, security, and value.  Join us today as we discuss: · What a Spousal IRA is and how you can invest in one · What the difference between a regular IRA and a Spousal IRA is · Contribution limits, investment advice, and tax rules for Spousal IRAs· The money in a Spousal IRA is your money! Contact Gigi: gigi.verrey@gcgfinancial.comListen to the full podcast or use the timestamps below to jump to a specific section. 1:36 – Welcome Gigi! 2:33 – What is a Spousal IRA?4:40 – What makes it a Spousal IRA?6:35 – Having separate accounts7:16 – What kind of investments? 8:53 – Transferring money 9:41 – What designates a Spousal IRA? 11:00 – Are they tax-deferred? 14:18 – What happens during a divorce?17:42 – Combining money into your partners IRA19:08 – Enjoying the growth of your income 21:27 – When do you need an account by? 23:09 – The best way to contact Gigi Resources:Find a Purse Strings Approved Professional - Click HereCheck out our Facebook Page - Click HereJoin our community of Financially  Fearless Women - Private Facebook Group
