If the thought of taking control of your finances freaks you out, you’re definitely not alone. With so much information out there about how to advance in your career, invest and build your wealth, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and just do nothing.
In fact, only 43 per cent of women are likely to say they know what financial investments are right for them, compared to 63 per cent of men. The stakes are high for us ladies, with women 80 per cent more likely to live in poverty during retirement than men. Let that sink in for a second. Confidence is crucial when it comes to financial literacy, and if you’re feeling you could use a bit more of that, our new video series has you covered.
Which is why we’ve turned to financial expert Lyn Allure to help you level up your finances.

Knowing that women are underrepresented in these spaces, Lyn wants women to know that they don’t have to choose between a life of passion or financial stability — and they don’t have to depend on anyone else, either.
