How to be Savvy With Your Money Even in Times of Stress and Grief
Change is especially hard when it touches your personal and home life. Every day, women find themselves newly single—sometimes by choice, sometimes not. Divorce and widowhood change your whole world and drive major changes in your legal and financial status. Even for the most financially savvy, these changes can take you by surprise—and could have far-reaching effects on your finances, investments, future plans, and family. How can you remain savvy about your money while you are going though grief and stress? It’s never easy, but knowing what’s ahead can make things easier to navigate. Anticipating the decisions you’ll need to make—and having some of them already made—is powerful and can keep you from layering one form of stress on top of another.
