For many women, the biggest hurdle they face when it comes to taking control of their finances is simply making the time to do so. Women tend to be multi-taskers, which can make them very productive. But doing multiple things at once can also make it difficult to block out time to focus on a specific task, such as financial planning.
Mark Singer CFP® suggests that women block off time in their calendar to deal with financial issues. These reviews don't have to be frequent or lengthy?30 minutes once every six months may be sufficient to give a woman a sense of where things stand. But whether they dedicate a half hour or an entire day to the task, taking the time to review financial concerns does need to be a high priority. Don't put it off or let other tasks overshadow it. By doing this, women can take the first step toward better managing their money and achieving their goals.
