Episode 10: Does Divorce Make You Poor? With Laurie Itkin


Laurie Itkin is like the financial fairy godmother every divorcee needs as she embraces her fresh start. Also known as the Option’s Lady, Laurie is an expert on all things financial. In this episode, she unpacks what we learned in our “Building a Financial Fresh Start” study. What kinds of surprises did women find in the dissolution of their marriages? How in control of finances do most women feel during and after a divorce?

Laurie watched her mother go through two divorces and understands the fear of being in a situation where you might outlive your money. You can hear how passionate she is about helping women get smart about their financial futures, and this episode is full of ways you can just do that. Even better?
