Give the "fulfillment dollars" more weight -- and realize that even savings from a small income can significantly add to a family nest egg over time. Women often overlook "the power of compounding," which is especially potent when they return to work in their 40s or 50s and save even small amounts for 20 years or more.
True fulfillment is only possible when we come from a place a love. And the problem is most of us are coming from a place of fear, not love. And the even bigger problem is that we are able to create a lot of success and goal line results from that place of fear -- in fact, it is often our strongest motivator.
