Recently, I was asked to pose a question to Suze Orman, which she graciously answered as part of the new Suze Orman Show Channel on YouTube. I asked a question that I thought would be helpful to the Women on Business audience:
Women’s retirement savings needs differ from men’s. Women live longer, women are typically paid less than men, and the number of single, working mothers is staggering. What are the top 3 tips you would give to women in regards to saving for retirement? Are they different from the tips you give to men?
Suze’s response is included in the video below or follow the link to view Suze Orman’s video on YouTube:
Mostly good reporting. Thanks. One critique: If you really want to be followed by intelligent women, please use proper English. In your biographical paragraph, you state that you have “…authored ten books…”. Since author is not a verb, please use the correct word: write.
You can stand out by using proper English grammar, syntax and word usage. You don’t have to stoop to substandard writing to reach an audience. The right audience will find you and respect you if you have high standards.
