It’s a story we hear often. A successful corporate executive puts in her time and is ready to close the book on a career that has served her well. After 38 years of hard work and dedication, she has one goal in mind: retirement. Until one day, a small moment in time has the force to change her mind completely. Her one-act play now becomes two.
So is the story of Jeannette Bajalia.
That small moment was the death of Jeannette’s father. At age 26, just as her career was beginning to take off, Jeannette had to take on the new role of caregiver for her mother.
Her mother, as it turned out, believed that “a man was a plan.” Jeannette quickly discovered that it wasn’t enough.
When it was time for Jeannette to depend on her own retirement income, she discovered that many in the financial industry didn’t understand the unique needs of women. These professionals wouldn’t take the time to help women create not only a financial plan but a life plan as well.
Jeannette decided to lead by example. And Woman’s Worth® was born.
