What was your inspiration?
My inspiration is love and compassion for all women.
I love women, they suffer from a lack of self-compassion in a world of no mercy. Especially when it comes to their finances. I love teaching, researching, humor and performing. I combine all of my passions and change the world with refreshing knowledge.
What change would you like to see reflected in the world in favor of women?
Equal pay for Equal work! It is institutionalized and had to be challenged. Fairness with retirement. Women lose 9 years' worth of investing when they leave the labor force to caretaking. Therefore, women should be compensated for the time they spend caring for their families and neighbors. We suffer when we don’t invest or invest too conservatively. We live longer than men but run out of money due to limited savings and a long life span. Employers should bring back pensions. We need to emphasize the importance of saving aggressively for retirement in middle school and throughout our educational system.
What would be the advice you give to any woman who knows that she needs a change in her life?
Be fiercely compassionate to yourself and do not let ANYONE tell you who you are and what you can do. PLAN! Plan for retirement, having children and self-sufficiency. No matter what happens to you-you can transcend and win. Stay connected to your women friends and maintain that Community. It will save you. You are Beloved.
