Review of Manage Your Financial Life on

If your best friend was looking for a little advice and asked how you handle your finances, what would you say? You balance your checkbook, signed up for online banking and try your best to stick to a budget. That’s good enough right? Unfortunately, that seems to be the approach many women are taking. According to a recent survey by Financial Finesse, women are still way less confident than men when it comes to their finances.

During Middle School, one of my teachers put me through torture. While he lectured, we were required to keep our pens down on our notebooks, no note-taking, no doodling, no passing notes, and no fidgeting.

I love writing down notes, and my copy of Manage Your Financial Life: A Thoughtful, Organized Approach for Women is completely noted from cover to cover.

Nancy Doyle was a guest on WBBM’s Noon Business Hour

WBBM’s Noon Business Hour for 7/12/2017 On July 12th, Nancy Doyle was a guest on WBBM Newsradio Noon Business Hour. The topic was important retirement milestones. Take advantage of catch-up provisions starting at age 50 that allow you to put away even more money for retirement.  For 401(k) and 403(b) plans, those over 50 can save an extra $6,000 for retirement, or up to $24,000.  For IRA and Roth IRAs, the catch-up provision is $1,000 on top of the $5,500 you can put away each year. At what age you start collecting social security has a big impact on the size of the payments for both you and a spouse that may survive you. Keep these milestones in mind as you plan for the future. Note – the segment begins at 19:55.
