I help regular people get honest about their money. It can be an emotional trip but one that is necessary to take &mdash; particularly if you are a woman! (Do you realize you'll likely outlive your partner? Will you also outlive your money? That's what I mean about getting honest and getting prepared.) <br /> <br /> Being in control of your financial life is one more way to assert your independance and ensure the security of your future.<br /> <br /> You can find me discussing a range of personal finance topics at <a rel="nofollow" href="http://blog.geezeo.com" target="_blank">Geezeo's Money 101</a>. <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.geezeo.com" target="_blank">Geezeo.com</a> is a website that provides free budgeting and investing tools as well as financial education and community support.<br /> <br /> I look forward to hearing from you.<br /> <br />
