We’re all counting down the days until we can retire. Vacations and new hobbies, maybe a new car is also somewhere down the line. But within our excitement, we forget about the small yet very important details that comes with retirement.
That’s why The Country Bookshop is bringing Marjorie Fox to talk about her new book, Women Wise, and to help women prepare for the big transition and the challenges they might face.
The event will be held at The Country Bookshop on Thursday, January 12th at 10am.
When it comes to retirement, women often face challenges that are unique to their gender—from living longer, to a higher likelihood of being single, to lower financial literacy, to fewer resources. Eleanor Blayney and Marjorie L. Fox spent their thirty-year careers in financial planning, helping their clients plan for the future and earning national recognition. Despite their professional success and expertise, when the time came for their own retirements, they felt unprepared in many ways. Realizing the disadvantages women face, Eleanor and Marjorie decided to combine their professional knowledge with their personal experiences to benefit senior women everywhere.
This joint venture became Women Wise, which tackles complex subjects. Medicare, Social Security, investment strategies, estate planning, and other financial topics receive thorough analysis, while emotional topics like elder abuse and making these uncharted years feel meaningful and joyous are treated with compassion and first-hand advice.
