Finding a financial advisor can feel like a heavy lift, so the task keeps falling down our to-do list, even though it is a priority. The key to this course is accountability. Over a 3-month period, you work with other women to clarify what you want from a financial advisor, build a short-list of candidates, and conduct interviews. By the end of the course, the bulk of your effort is done.
