What To Do When The Executive Suite Is Not So Sweet?

It’s not a slight speed bump that is distracting us and will run its course and be over, like our daughter not getting into the Ivy League school of her choice, or our son telling us he is quitting school and going around the world on his skate board, or our sister informing us that our mother needs full-time care and is headed for a retirement facility.

"It didn't cost much, and the kids had a blast," she told me.

Emotional & Spiritual
By Pegi Burdick for YourTango.com.
So often, people ask me why I focus on the emotional and spiritual aspects of a woman's life when she is dealing with financial concerns. My response is that looking for a financial advisor or seeking debt-elimination tips doesn't really solve a woman's underlying issues about money. Building financial awareness for women begins on a much deeper level.
