Are women a bigger risk for stroke?

stroke-preventionThe answer is YES!

I had the privilege of speaking to a group of women last week, only one of whom owned a disability insurance policy.  Why did that one woman own that policy?  Because she had already gone through the devastating experience of not being able to work and losing everything.

If you are reading this blog, please consider what would happen to you and your family if you were unable to work.  What would be the effect?  If we hadn’t owned insurance, I would have had to find a job–fast.  What would have happened to Gordon?  Who would have taken care of him and worked with him on his recovery?  Who would have been there for the kids?  What would have happened to us?

Women are 5 times more likely to have a disability claim than men.  I will say it again.  Women are 5 times more likely to have a disability claim than men. Think about that.  Yeah, we’re smart and beautiful…but we need to also be financially prepared.  Please don’t wait until it is too late.  It just isn’t worth the gamble.
