017: Why Smart Women Finish Rich with David Bach

David Bach’s goal in life is to inspire a million women to be smarter with money. He’s the co-founder of AE Wealth Management, which oversees over $4 billion in assets, as well as the author of Smart Women Finish Rich, a word of mouth phenomenon that has sold over 1 million copies and is now entering its 63rd printing.

Unlike many financial books, it’s a nice, neat package that’s easy to understand – and one that I keep around for women and couples who are looking to learn how to create a secure retirement. It’s also a vital resource, as $39.6 trillion of the world’s wealth is now controlled by women, and that number is estimated to rise to $72 trillion as soon as 2020.

David is a very special guest and a great friend. I’m excited to have him on the podcast to talk about the recently updated edition of his book, the life lessons he learned from his self-made millionaire grandmother, and the unique challenges facing women in retirement. For both women facing retirement and the financial planners who might want to work with them, it’s a must listen.

In this podcast interview, you’ll learn:

  • Why this has been a passion for David Bach for over 25 years – and how things have changed in the world when it comes to women and money since he published the first edition of his book.
  • The reasons women are financially devastated after divorce or death of a spouse – and how to help women prepare for these scenarios.  
  • Why so many women leave their partner’s financial advisors immediately after they die – and how financial advisors can prevent this.
  • The unique reasons that women often outperform men as investors.
  • Why David doesn’t believe people need to work until they’re 70 – and why his biggest passion is that people live their greatest life.
  • The difference between depressed and happy retirees and why you should be working on your future self at any age.
  • What potential clients should get out of first and second meetings with prospective financial planners.
  • How David’s grandmother taught him to invest – and how you can do the same with your own children.
