I hold several licenses but the ones that WOMEN should also have are Real Estate & Insurance.
If you are asking why, then you have answered the question already!
Women are behind men in every area when it comes to finances.
The Benefits of Being Licensed
Obtaining your Real Estate & Insurance licenses would mean the following:
Learn While You Earn
You can LEARN while you EARN! – One of the reasons women are behind is lack of knowledge. Well if you start learning then the barrier of education in these areas is no longer an obstacle.
Real Estate transactions can earn you more in one deal than you can earn in months of working at a job you hate. Example: If you sell a $150K home, you can earn, on average, $3000.
Women know and can assist in sharing why life insurance is important to other women. With so many people running, there just isn’t enough time for people to look for services. Having this license can help so many people protect and provide coverage for their families.
A First Step
A life license is also the first step to becoming a financial planner.
The first step to a strong financial future is understanding what you don’t know and taking action. No one can manage your finances better than you, so get a grip on what you need to know!
