Here’s how it’s supposed to go: You go to school, get good grades, get a post-secondary education and score a sweet job. Then you spend the next 30 or so years sweating it out and saving up so you can retire and do what you really want.

There’s just one problem…. Thirty years is a very long time to wait.

Research from a recent white paper by CFA Barbara Stewart suggests that unlike past generations, many of today’s women aren’t willing to wait. She interviewed 100 women around the world to find out how they’re spending their time, money and energy. What she found is that they’re adding a whole new dimension to the term “investment”. On top of stocks, bonds and real estate, they’re defining the time and energy they pour into their families, themselves and the causes they believe in, as investments, too.

Find out how women are making investments that don’t show up on a balance sheet…and financing their dreams now, rather than years from now, in my new post on GoldenGirlFinance.com.
