The Simple Dollar

Our work has been carried by some of the country’s top media outlets, including Forbes, CNN, and US News & World Report. We recently published a free online guide to financial independence for women that I believe has a lot to offer your members and others in your local community.

Our guide is designed to provide women with a thorough, step-by-step introduction to securing and maintaining financial independence. We worked hard to produce a guide that introduces all the basics while also delivering expert insight and practical budgeting, spending, and saving tips that women can use to make a real difference in their financial lives. I think our guide can serve as a valuable resource for club members, while also aligning closely with your efforts to improve your local community.

Take a look at our work here: <http://www.thesimpledollar.com/guide-to-financial-independence-for-women>

We start by introducing the special challenges that many women face when it comes to building a strong financial foundation. For example, the average woman spends 12 fewer years in the full-time workforce than the average man, primarily due to child-rearing responsibilities and a greater reliance on part-time work. Women also enjoy a longer average life expectancy than men, creating a greater need for savings to fund a longer retirement. These and other challenges mean that women must take special care to begin laying the groundwork for true financial independence as early as possible.

Our guide – which is completely free and instantly accessible to anyone – then goes on to cover the basics of cash flow analysis and household budgeting, two fundamental skills that are critical to maintaining financial independence over the long run. We also break down the key strategies women can use to deal with debt and save for retirement successfully.

While this guide is one of our newest productions, universities and professional associations are already linking to it and our other guides as trusted resources. Here are some examples:

Before you leave shut off the power at the main breaker, also your main water line coming into your home. Make sure you take phone numbers or web addresses for any insurance that you have. Try to take at least three days supply of clothes and medicine. Don’t forget food and water for your family. Check ahead (like now) for shelters that take pets or for people with special needs. Planning ahead is the key to not standing around waiting for a hand out.
