Wickedly Smart Women

Apr 20, 2022

Many women are not financially savvy. They might be able to make money but can be unsure of how to manage it. 98% of women will outlive their spouses, so eventually, most women will be handling their finances whether they like it or not.

Karolyn Wotring is an influencer and a leader of women. She’s spent the last 3 decades as a financial planner working with the top executives of Fortune 500 companies and has helped thousands of women transition to become financially savvy. Karolyn is also a mother of two, a recipient of the Chicagoland 2016 Woman of Distinction award, and the founder of the Financially Savvy Woman® program.

On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Karolyn Wotring joins Anjel to explain what inspired her to become a financial planner and specifically to help women in transition to take control of their finances. Karolyn says, “I treat every one of my clients like my sister, or my mom or my friend.”
