Women & Money: A Practical Guide to Estate Planning

Women in the United States today control 75% of the total personal wealth, fill more than half the jobs and earn more than half the college degrees.

Women make up the fastest growing sector of new business owners, the fastest growing sector of the U.S. investor base and, for the first time in history, nearly half of all substantial investors – those with more than $100,000 of investable assets – are WOMEN!

Yet, most American women have not yet taken steps to put the legal mechanisms in place through estate planning that will protect their assets, their families, and themselves.

This book is for YOU!

You need this candid, no-nonsense financial survival tool if you have concerns about your financial future but keep getting “Oh, now Dear, you don’t need to concern yourself with all that complicated financial stuff” from the Good Ole Boys. Annino’s book, written in a candid, no-nonsense style, is a practical tool you can put to work right now; not just another financial book filled with legalese and fluff. You will get the sense that she actually cares about her clients, who serve as examples in the book – and you. And that’s a good thing!

Ms. Annino’s book provides the basic legal knowledge women need to deal with problems such as caring for elderly parents or young children, preparing for death or disability of self or spouse, whether to buy insurance, etc. However, there is no dry legalese: the advice is straightforward and abundantly illustrated with interesting stories from her law practice. In chapters aimed at women in various stages (divorcing, single, married, etc.) Annino seems to be having a personal conversation directly with the reader, offering lots of practical advice. Even has a fashionably pretty cover! Ladies: start your studies with this book.


Do you have an elderly parent? A child of any age?

If you do, this book is ESSENTIAL! After watching my own mother struggle with her mother’s various illnesses and lack of finances needed to cover the skyrocketing costs, I vowed not to let that happen to me. Ms. Annino’s guide outlines, in an easy-to-follow manner, the steps you need to take in order to protect the ones you love from financial heartache. And let’s face it, women in this country are the CFO’s of their households and too often, not educated about how to protect and plan their estate (I know I wasn’t!). Reading this book and implementing the simple steps that Ms. Annino suggests can save you and your loved ones tens of thousands of dollars…and that is time well spent.
