“It’s easy when you meet new people, when you’re at a conference or something, to start feeling like you need to be marketing yourself, telling them who you are. Instead, ask questions and learn who they are. If you listen, you make the other person feel great and so you’ve made a connection. And you’ll learn something.” - Kerry Hannon
“A key thing is to always pay yourself first. It’s really easy, you’re paying bills and you forget to save, to invest, to put money aside for you and wish fund, you’re not saving for retirement, you’re saving for life.” - Kerry Hannon
In this episode of Get Ready!, I spoke with Kerry Hannon, Author, Speaker and Career Strategist about mid-life career transitions. We also discussed Kerry’s “She Leads Workshops”, that facilitates women having conversations with other women to raise awareness of issues and challenges they face in securing, protecting and growing their wealth. Lastly, we covered Kerry’s advocacy work and testimony to Congress on older workers and the changing workscape, as well as the importance of women taking charge of their own financial planning.
