    Is Your Head In The Sand?

    How To Get Up To Speed On Money As If Your (Financial) Life Depended On It


    You may have heard that 90% of all women will be solely responsible for their own or their family’s finances at some point in their lives.Unfortunately, many people – and especially women – are not prepared financially for divorce, retirement, widowhood, or other life events, and are woefully unequipped to make the important financial decisions impacting their lives.


    In today’s complex world, women need to understand how their finances work. The math is simple. Women earn less, save less, and spend more time out of the work force than men. Yet, they tend to live longer. And living longer carries a hefty price tag, leading to over half of women surveyed saying they fear running out of money during their lifetimes.


    It doesn’t have to be that way. With a few simple strategies, you can put yourself in control of your finances.


    Certified Financial Planner Mari Adam will discuss the key money facts you need to know, and offer strategies for getting, and staying, up to speed on your money matters, including last-minute IRA and savings tips.


    Mari has been a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) for almost thirty years, and is President and Founder of Adam Financial Associates, an SEC-registered investment advisory firm specializing in financial planning and wealth management based in Boca Raton, Florida. Since 1995, the firm has specialized in working with women, couples, and people who want to enjoy a confident, fulfilling retirement, and provides clients with conflict-free and objective advice on a fee-only basis.

    She has earned the Women’s Choice Award® for Financial Advisors and Firms and was recently featured in USA Today, spotlighting her firm’s commitment to helping female clients, their families, and partners.

    Mari has helped train and mentor dozens of women interested in financial services through training initiatives at her own firm, and participation in the CFP Board of Standards Women’s Initiative. She is an active supporter of programs helping women address their special financial and retirement needs through guidance, education, and advocacy, especially women experiencing life transitions like divorce, widowhood, and retirement.


    She is past President of the South Florida Financial Planning Association, and former Chair of the Advisory Board of the Berger Institute for Work, Family, and Children in Claremont, California.

    Most women I know would never think of the possibility of living aboard a sailboat or crossing an ocean on a sailing yacht.  How does a frightened and nervous woman become happy and excited to sail and discover the magic of really loving it?  Keep in mind, a sailboat is a moving home.  It is always either on its side, or bouncing along the waves and swells.  With knowledge of the how and why and 'I can do this', the possibilities become unlimited.

    Share with Pam and her students how these women 'wanna be' sailors become active and proficient sailors after attending Pam's WOW, Women on the Water Week, at the beautiful Bitter End Yacht Club in the British Virgin Islands.  Enjoy the power point presentation that vividly demonstrates how empowering women teaching other women can be.

    Pam Wall has encouraged so many women not only to learn how to sail properly, but to enjoy it and feel comfortable on board while seeing the world.  She will explain how this critical and difficult task is accomplished.  During Women on the Water Week, you will see these frightened women transformed into women proud of their achievement as knowledgeable and competent sailors who look forward to to spending time at sea.

    Pam is quite certain this personal pride of achievement resides in each of us, and we all can relate to similar situations in our everyday lives.
