Welcome! I’m Stephanie Sammons, the Retirement Money Gal™ Podcast. As an experienced Certified Financial Planner™ and CEO of Sammons Wealth Management, I’ve been guiding independent women to and through retirement for more than 20 years.
This is THE podcast for women professionals who are within 5 to 15 years from retirement. If you want to know more about creating your ideal retirement lifestyle on your terms, you’re in the right place!
The money side of retirement is absolutely critical, but your personal growth, your work life, and your health and wellness also matter. These things lead to a more fulfilling life as you age. Although I share lots of retirement money tips on this show, you’ll hear plenty of insights on personal and professional growth as well!
As a midlife professional myself, I have come to view retirement as an exciting next phase of life full of opportunity. But, I believe that we need to thoughtfully plan for what’s next. We need to plan to stay active, engaged, and purposeful in our lives as we go to and through our retirement years.
I also resent being referred to as a “senior” already (at age 50) and believe that we need to completely reframe retirement for women! This will not be our parents’ retirement.
We are living longer now, and even outlasting our male counterparts. Yet, on the financial side of things, we earn less, save less, and invest more conservatively than men. The reality is, we have to be smarter NOW about how we will fund our ideal retirement lifestyle so that we can remain financially secure throughout retirement.
As the Retirement Money Gal™, my mission is simple. I want to teach you how to retire smart, secure, and happy.
