There’s plenty of information out there when it comes to how people are struggling to save for retirement, and not surprisingly much of it highlights all the areas that need improvement. People aren’t saving enough, there’s too much personal debt, juggling competing financial priorities is exhausting…the list goes on.
Of course, in any area of life, from our relationships and careers to our physical and financial health, being honest about where we are falling short is an important part of how we take steps to improve. But focusing only on what’s not working can mean some of our greatest strengths get overshadowed.
This holds especially true when it comes to women and saving for retirement.
