About Lynn Evans: Lynn founded Women of Substance, LLC after the successful sale of her primary business to her senior financial advisor because she saw a gap in the knowledge base of women her own age.
“I acknowledged that the men in my clients’ lives had been lovingly (or not!) controlling the family purse strings, but once retirement, widowhood, or divorce hit, these women were left with nowhere to turn,” explains Lynn, who resolved to end that dependence and replace it with knowledge.
Lynn’s book, Power of the Purse: Fear Free Finances for Baby Boomer Women, has won accolades, as has her weekly podcast, Power of the Purse. Learn more at www.lynnsevans.com.
