Investing in Yourself
There are many reasons why you might require a different approach to financial planning. Some of these reasons are demographic, some societal and some family-related. According to a 2011 labour force report by Statistics Canada, women make up 47 percent of the workforce and in 2006 female lone-parent families represented 13% of all families - either because their spouse was out of work or because they were heads of households.
Regardless of your financial situation, Raymond James recommends that you consult with a professional financial advisor to create a personal plan for the future - whatever that may hold - because when it comes to financial security, it pays to invest in yourself.
