My friend Russ Thornton, the founder of Wealthcare for Women, a financial advisory focused on divorced women. He's seen it all!
- Why every person in a marriage has to know all about all the money, all the time — no matter how things have always been done.
- “Women cannot afford to sit back and stick their heads in the sand or up their asses and just hope and pray things will work out.”
- Why the most affluent families often have the nastiest skeletons in their pretty closets.
- The nitty-gritty on life insurance, wills, retirement and budgeting post-divorce.
- “Do not rely on anyone to take care of your financially.”
