Overcoming Impostor Syndrome and the Shecession: Single Woman and Money

Updated: May 19



Between impostor syndrome and the shecession, being a single woman can be tough! But, armed with the right information, you can transform the struggles into advantages. Join us on next The Chicago Money Show with author Jill Gianola as we discuss how.


The shecession is the moniker for how COVID has hit women differently than men. And we’re not talking about the disease, we’re talking about home life and money. Impostor syndrome is the label for feeling like—well—an impostor. This lack of confidence hurts women when they’re applying for jobs, negotiating for salary, and putting themselves out there in the world. Ironically, real impostors don’t seem to be troubled with it!


Jill Gianola holds a special place in my heart. I’ve known her as a colleague and mentor through both of our work with ACP, or the Alliance of Comprehensive Planners. She’s recently written Single Women and Money: How to Live Well on Your Income with Margaret Price.
